Energy Department Grants $10 Million to Advance Zero-Emission Cargo Transport Vehicles

Electrifying cargo transportation vehicles and infrastructure will reduce petroleum use, carbon emissions and air pollution at transportation hubs, such as ports.

The U.S. Department of Energy announced up to $10 million to demonstrate and deploy innovative alternate transportation technologies for cargo vehicles, designed to help reduce U.S. reliance on gasoline, diesel and oil imports.

Electrifying cargo transportation vehicles and infrastructure will reduce petroleum use, carbon emissions and air pollution at transportation hubs, such as ports. The Energy Department seeks applicants to demonstrate cost-effective zero-emission cargo transport systems and collect data on the performance and cost, to help clarify the benefits and viability of this approach. This funding opportunity is open to local governments and private companies, with federal funds matched at a 50 percent cost share. Learn more about this funding opportunity.

The Department's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy accelerates development and deployment of energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies and market-based solutions that strengthen U.S. energy security, environmental quality and economic vitality. For more information on funding opportunities for advanced vehicle technology projects, see the EERE Vehicle Technology Office's financial opportunities.
