systems, reduce parasitic and idling losses, and validate and demonstrate these technologies.

There is no single source of funds for the 21CTP, as was probably intended by its creators (according to the presentation of Paul Skalny at the committee’s second meeting).12 Instead, each of the four agencies has its own stream of funds. Agency personnel in the 21CTP meet frequently and industrial partners meet frequently to ensure communication about new technologies and new industrial needs. That is the extent of the coordination.

In the part of the program administered by DOE/EERE, for example, the total appropriation each year is divided on the basis of several “technical areas,” which correspond to engines, lightweight technology, idle reduction, and so on. In addition, they must maintain funding to companies with multiyear cooperative agreements and with Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (in the DOE laboratories).

ORIGIN AND SCOPE OF THIS STUDY

In response to a request from the director of the DOE’s Office of FreedomCAR and Vehicle Technologies, the National Research Council formed the Committee to Review
