U.S. DOE Announces $15 Million in Funding for Clean Transportation Deployment

London, 12 February 2024, (Oilandgaspress): –The Department of Energy (DOE) announced $15 million in new funding for projects that will advance deployment of technologies critical to achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in the transportation sector.
The funding will drive innovation in equitable clean transportation and is aligned with strategies detailed in the U.S. National Blueprint for Transportation Decarbonization. The funding is administered through the Vehicle Technologies Office (VTO) within DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE). Topic areas in VTO’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 Technology Integration funding opportunity include:
• Clean Cities Outreach, Engagement, and Technical Assistance
• Training on Zero Emission Vehicle and Infrastructure Technologies for Critical Emergency Response Workers
• Clean Transportation Demonstration and Deployment.
As part of the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to ensuring the benefits of a clean transportation system are shared equally, the funding seeks the participation of underserved communities and underrepresented groups. Applicants are required to describe how diversity, equity, and inclusion objectives will be incorporated into their project, and are highly encouraged to include individuals from groups historically underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) on their project teams.
