The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is seeking proposals to create computer models to help build and improve electric drive vehicle (EDV) batteries.
The goals for the design tools are:
* Shorten the prototyping and manufacturing process
* Improve overall performance, safety, and battery life
* Lower costs
The request for proposals for "Development of Computer Aided Design Tools for Automotive Batteries" and related documents are available online at:
Proposals are due September 14, 2010. The award amount that companies can apply for is up to $7.5 million with a 50 percent cost share required bringing the total possible project amount up to $15 million over three years.
EDVs — commonly known as hybrid electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, and electric vehicles — have the potential to significantly reduce petroleum consumption and dependence on imported oil while improving emission of greenhouse gases and pollutants.
