EPA Goal 4: Ensuring the Safety of Chemicals
and Preventing Pollution
The Vehicle Technologies Program is developing more energy efficient and environmentally friendly highway transportation technologies that will enable America to use less petroleum. The long-term aim is to develop "leap frog" technologies that will provide Americans with greater freedom of mobility and energy security, while lowering costs and reducing impacts on the environment. Vehicle Technologies Program professionals work with industry leaders to develop and deploy advanced transportation technologies that could achieve significant improvements in vehicle fuel efficiency and displace oil with other fuels that ultimately can be domestically produced in a clean and cost-competitive manner. Program activities include research, development, demonstration, testing, technology validation, technology transfer, and education.
The Vehicle Technologies Program conducts its work through a variety of activity areas, including:
• Hybrid and Vehicle Systems Technologies,
• Energy Storage Technologies,
• Advanced Combustion Engines Technologies,
• Fuels & Lubricants Technologies.
