DE-FOA-0001813: Medium/Heavy-Duty, On-Road Natural Gas Engine R&D

Amendment 0001 issued on November 30, 2017 for the purpose of updating the Summary Slide Instructions and Template for use in submitting full applications.

********************************************************************************************

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is issuing, on behalf of the Vehicle Technologies Office (VTO), a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled “Medium/Heavy-Duty, On-Road Natural Gas Engine Research and Development”.

VTO seeks cost-shared projects for the research of medium and heavy-duty on-road natural gas engines. Specifically, this topic addresses engine efficiency improvements, fuel system enhancements, and emission after-treatment technologies, which are barriers to the adoption of natural gas engine technologies.

**********************************************************************************************************

Informational Webinar: EERE will conduct one informational webinar during the FOA process. It will be held after the initial FOA release but before the due date for the Concept Papers. Attendance is not mandatory and will not positively or negatively impact the overall review of any Applicant submissions.

Please register for FOA 1813 Medium/Heavy-Duty, On-Road Natural Gas Engine R&D Applicant Webinar on Oct 23, 2017 11:00 AM EDT at:

DE-FOA-0001812: Notice of Intent to Issue Funding Opportunity Announcement: DE-FOA-0001813 entitled: Medium/Heavy-Duty, On-Road Natural Gas Engine Research and Development

The purpose of this Notice of Intent is to provide potential applicants advance notice that the Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy intends to issue, on behalf of the Vehicle Technologies Office, a Funding Opportunity Announcement, number DE-FOA-0001813 entitled "Medium / Heavy Duty, On-Road Natural Gas Engine research and Development".    The objective is to address barriers to adoption of natural gas vehicles through early-stage research on medium- and heavy-duty on-road engine technologies.  The programmatic goal is to enable natural gas engines that can cost-effectively achieve diesel-like efficiency while meeting current and future emissions standards.  A complete engine development project is outside the scope of this effort, but engine subsystem research must have a plausible pathway to higher engine efficiency.  Emission control technology projects addressing criteria pollutants and GHGs are desired, with consideration that future standards are likely to influence NGV technology adoption.  Potential technologies include (but are not limited to) combustion strategies, engine subsystems, emission control systems, fuel systems, and controls.

PLEASE NOTE THAT NO APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED THROUGH THIS NOTICE. Please do not submit questions or respond to this Notice of Intent. It is anticipated that this FOA will be posted to the EERE Exchange website in the October 2017 timeframe.  EERE plans to issue the FOA in October 2017 via the EERE Exchange website https://eere-exchange.energy.gov/. If Applicants wish to receive official notifications and information from EERE regarding the FOA, they should register in EERE Exchange. When the FOA is released, applications will be accepted only through EERE Exchange.
