DOE RFI: Progression of Net-Zero Emission Propulsion Technologies for the Off-Road Sector - Due 06/07/24

Opportunity Title:

Progression of Net-Zero Emission Propulsion Technologies for the Off-Road Sector


Funder/Agency:

Department of Energy (DOE), Golden Field Office (GFO)

 

Opportunity Number:

DE-FOA-0003353

 

Description:

The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to understand the off-road sector alternative propulsion technology preferences, which technologies seem most promising, and what are the key barriers to achieving the transition to net-zero emissions by 2050. The propulsion technologies under consideration for this RFI are: biodiesel, renewable diesel, renewable natural gas, battery electric, direct electrification (catenary), electric hybridization, hydrogen fueled internal combustion engines and hydrogen fuel cells. Currently, no one alternative propulsion technology is a clear choice for sector decarbonization.


To develop a national strategy to decarbonize the sector, three critical questions must be addressed:

  • What is the current state of the off-road vehicle fleet?

  • Which powertrain technologies are most promising for decarbonization of off-road vehicles?

  • What is the timeline for the off-road sector to transition to net-zero emission GHG technologies?


In September 2022, the U.S. DOE, DOT, HUD, and the EPA executed a historic Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the signatory agencies to accelerate our nation’s affordable and equitable clean transportation future. As a result of the comprehensive decarbonization strategy called for in the MOU, those agencies issued the U.S. National Blueprint for Transportation Decarbonization, which set the goal to achieve net-zero carbon emissions in the transportation sector – including off-road equipment – by 2052.


The Transition to net-zero emission technologies requires coordination among all aspects of the supply chain, including feedstock supply, alternative fuel production, equipment manufacturers, safety implementation, customer demand, and government regulation.


Eligibility:

Unrestricted

 

Deadline:

RFI Submission Due June 07, 2024
