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.
