DOE funds $50M for commercial truck, off-road vehicle and gaseous fuels research

August 10, 2019 |

In Washington, D.C., the U.S. Department of Energy announced $50 million for new and innovative research of technologies for trucks, off-road vehicles, and the fuels that power them. Funded through the DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), these selections highlight the DOE’s priorities in gaseous fuels research, including natural gas, biopower, and hydrogen; heavy-duty freight electrification; hydrogen infrastructure and fuel cell technologies for heavy-duty applications; and energy efficient off-road vehicles.

Washington State University received a little over $2 million to develop an efficient and cost-effective novel anaerobic digestion system producing high purity methane from diverse waste biomass as part of the funding. Several others are listed here.
