***Amendment 000001 to DE-FOA-0001447***

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is issuing, on behalf of the Vehicle Technologies Office (VTO), this FOA entitled “Advanced Systems Level Technology Development, Integration and Demonstration for Efficient Class 8 Trucks (SuperTruck II).”

The SuperTruck initiative seeks to reduce transportation fuel consumption by improving on-road truck fuel economy. SuperTruck I focused exclusively on long-haul Class 8 trucks and achieved freight efficiency improvements in excess of the 50 percent goal, on a ton-mile-per gallon basis, with many of the technologies ready for commercialization or nearing commercial readiness. SuperTruck I also identified additional opportunities for commercial truck efficiency improvements. For this reason, SuperTruck II includes more aggressive overall freight efficiency and engine brake thermal efficiency goals – specifically, a greater than 100 percent freight efficiency goal and greater than or equal to 55 percent engine brake thermal efficiency goal. In addition, SuperTruck II also requires demonstration of the same or improved vehicle performance (acceleration, gradeability) relative to a 2009 baseline and includes cost requirements to provide a shorter payback period for the fleet customer, which is needed to foster a more rapid market adoption of new energy efficient technologies. There is an opportunity for teams to consider Class 8 truck applications beyond long-haul as well.
