Building on President Obama’s Climate Action Plan to build a 21st century transportation sector and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the Energy Department recently announced more than $45 million for 38 new projects that accelerate the research and development of vehicle technologies to improve fuel efficiency, lower transportation costs, and protect the environment in communities nationwide.

“By partnering with universities, private industry and our national labs, the Energy Department is helping to build a strong 21st century transportation sector that cuts harmful pollution, creates jobs and leads to a more sustainable energy future,” said Ernest Moniz, Energy secretary. “By improving the fuel economy of our cars and trucks, we can save families and businesses money at the pump and better protect our air and water.”

The 38 projects span five major areas critical to advanced transportation technologies, such as lightweighting, propulsion materials and affordable, efficient batteries; power electronics; fuels and lubricants; and efficient heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems.
