Funded by:

U.S. Department of Energy


DOE announced an intent to fund projects that will advance research, development, demonstration, and deployment (RDD&D) in several areas critical to achieving net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the transportation sector. The potential funding will drive innovations in low-cost electric vehicle (EV) battery manufacturing, using inexpensive and abundant battery materials in support of a viable domestic materials supply chain, and conducting smart-charge management demonstrations.

Topic areas in VTO’s Fiscal Year 2024 Batteries & Electrification funding opportunity may include the following areas of interest:

  • Demonstration of Smart Charge Management for Electric Vehicles
  • Improved 12 Volt Lead Acid Batteries for Safety-Critical Electric Vehicle Applications
  • Develop Vehicle or Structural Level Strategies to Reduce the Likelihood of the Cascading Effects of Electric Vehicle Fires
  • Battery Electrode, Cell, and Pack Manufacturing Cost Reduction
  • Silicon-Based Anodes for Lithium-Ion Batteries
  • High Energy Density Conversion Cathodes

As part of this approach, this anticipated FOA will encourage the participation of underserved communities and underrepresented groups. Applicants are highly encouraged to include individuals from groups historically underrepresented in STEM on their project teams.

This is a Notice of Intent (NOI) only. EERE may issue a FOA as described herein, may issue a FOA that is significantly different than the FOA described herein, or EERE may not issue a FOA at all.
