The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy is issuing, on behalf of the Vehicle Technologies Office, this FOA entitled Advanced Systems Level Technology Development, Integration and Demonstration for Efficient Class 8 Trucks, SuperTruck II The SuperTruck initiative seeks to reduce transportation fuel consumption by improving on-road truck fuel economy. SuperTruck I focused exclusively on long-haul Class 8 trucks and achieved freight efficiency improvements in excess of the 50 percent goal, on a ton-mile-per gallon basis, with many of the technologies ready for commercialization or nearing commercial readiness. SuperTruck I also identified additional opportunities for commercial truck efficiency improvements. For this reason, SuperTruck II includes more aggressive overall freight efficiency and engine brake thermal efficiency goals â€“ specifically, a greater than 100 percent freight efficiency goal and greater than or equal to 55 percent engine brake thermal efficiency goal. In addition, SuperTruck II also requires demonstration of the same or improved vehicle performance, acceleration and gradeability, relative to a 2009 baseline and includes cost requirements to provide a shorter payback period for the fleet customer, which is needed to foster a more rapid market adoption of new energy efficient technologies. There is an opportunity for teams to consider Class 8 truck applications beyond long-haul as well. The full Funding Opportunity Announcement is posted on the EERE eXCHANGE website at https://eere-exchange.energy.gov. Applications must be submitted through the EERE eXCHANGE website to be considered for award. Information on where to submit questions regarding the content of the announcement and where to submit questions regarding submission of applications is found in the full FOA posted on the EERE Exchange website.
