Today, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Vehicle Technologies Office announced a notice of intent to issue a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled “Fiscal Year 2023 Vehicle Technologies Office Program Wide Funding Opportunity Announcement.” The potential FOA will advance research, development, demonstration, and deployment (RDD&D) in several areas critical to achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, including:
Reduction of weight and cost of batteries,
Reduction in life cycle emissions of advanced lightweight materials,
Reduced costs and advanced technologies for on- and off-road vehicle charging and infrastructure,
Innovative public transit solutions,
Training to increase deployment of these technologies among diverse communities.
The RDD&D activities to be funded under this potential funding will support the government-wide approach to the climate crisis by driving innovation that can lead to the deployment of clean energy technologies. DOE anticipates including topics of interest that will support VTO’s RDD&D of new, efficient, and clean mobility options that are affordable for all Americans. As part of this approach, this prospective funding will encourage the participation of underserved communities and underrepresented groups.
