Vehicle Technologies Office

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) supports the development and deployment of advanced vehicle technologies, including advances in electric vehicles, engine efficiency, and lightweight materials.  Since 2008, the U.S. Department of Energy has reduced the costs of producing electric vehicle batteries by more than 35%.  DOE has also pioneered better combustion engines that have saved billions of gallons of petroleum fuel, while making diesel vehicles as clean as gasoline-fueled vehicles.

The DOE Vehicle Technologies Office develops and deploys efficient and environmentally friendly highway transportation technologies that will enable America to use less petroleum.  These technologies will provide Americans with greater freedom of mobility and energy security, while lowering costs and reducing impacts on the environment.

The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) manages a project portfolio and issues funding opportunity announcements on behalf of the DOE Vehicle Technologies Office.
