DOE to award almost $20M to new research and development projects for advanced vehicle technologies

Green Car Congress

This topic seeks proof-of-concept, or seedling projects that complement the VTO Battery500 Consortium’s research to more than double the specific energy (to 500 watt-hours per kilogram) of lithium battery technologies which will result in smaller, lighter weight, less expensive battery packs, and more affordable electric vehicles. The US Department of Energy (DOE) is issuing a program-wide funding opportunity ( DE-FOA-0001629 ) for the Vehicle Technologies Office of up to $19.7

DOE to issue $47M FY17 Vehicle Technologies program-wide funding opportunity

Green Car Congress

The purpose of this topic is to identify proof-of-concept or seedling projects that will complement the research in the Battery500 Program. The objective of the VTO Battery500 Program is to research, develop, and demonstrate lithium battery technologies capable of achieving a cell specific energy of ≥500 Wh/kg while achieving 1,000 cycles. The US Department of Energy (DOE) will soon issue its FY17 Vehicle Technologies Program Wide Funding Opportunity Announcement ( DE-FOA-0001701 ).
