US DOE Logo

The DOE has announced a new funding opportunity (DE-FOA-0001919) that will make up to $68.5 million available for early-stage research of advanced vehicle technologies. The agency is seeking research projects in several areas, including: Batteries and Electrification; Materials; and Technology Integration and Energy-efficient Mobility Systems.

The Batteries and Electrification topic area, which will receive up to $27 million in funding, includes subjects such as: low-cobalt active cathode materials; extreme fast charging (power levels up to 350 kW; and charging infrastructure cybersecurity.

The Technology Integration and Energy-efficient Mobility Systems topic area, which will receive up to $20 million, includes: computing for transportation system optimization; first/last mile solutions; system-level data for more energy-efficient mobility; fuel-efficient platooning; and multi-unit dwelling EV charging.

Concept papers for this funding opportunity are due May 29, 2018, and full applications will be due July 13, 2018.
