Appendix C Statement of Task

In the Phase 5 review the Standing Committee to Review the Research Program of the Partnership for a New Generation of Vehicles will address the following tasks:

  • (1)  

    In light of recommendations from the fourth review, for each of the major technology selection focus areas (i.e., four-stroke direct injection engines, fuel cells, energy storage, electronic and electrical systems, and materials), examine the overall adequacy and balance of the PNGV research and development efforts to meet the program goals and requirements (i.e., technical objectives, schedules and rate of progress necessary to meet the requirements).

  • (2)  

    Examine the ongoing systems analysis effort and the process by which it is guiding the PNGV to make decisions on R&D directions.

  • (3)  

    Examine the efforts and progress towards PNGV's long-range component and system-level cost and performance goals.

  • (4)  

    Examine ongoing PNGV-related efforts in the areas of vehicle emissions research and advanced materials research, and the process by which results are targeting both long-range and shorter-range PNGV goals.

  • (5)  

    Review the government efforts to provide interfaces among different government agency R&D activities in support of PNGV.
