Summary of 21CTP Goals

Goal Number Goal Text
E-1 Develop and demonstrate an emissions compliant engine system for Class 7-8 highway trucks that achieves 50% brake thermal efficiency in an over-the-road cruise condition, improving the engine system fuel efficiency by about 20% (from approximately 42% thermal efficiency today). (2015)
E-2 Research and develop technologies which achieve a stretch thermal efficiency goal of 55% in prototype engine systems in the lab. (This efficiency gain would be equivalent to an additional 10% gain in over-the-road fuel economy when prototype concepts are fully developed for the market.) (2015)
E-3 Through experiments and models with FACE fuels and other projects, determine the most essential fuel properties, including renewables, needed to achieve 55% engine brake efficiency. (2014)
E-4 Identify alternatives to fossil petroleum based fuels and technology pathways (vehicle, fuels, and infrastructure) to a sustainable, long-term fuel supply.
HE-1 Ability to attain fuel consumption reductions (compared to today’s conventional, non-hybridized heavy-duty vehicles) in a commercially viable manner.
HE-2 Develop a hybrid system with a design life of 15 years.
HE-3 Achieve cost targets for energy storage ($45 per kW and/or $500/kW- hour for an energy battery by 2017; $40 per kW and/or $300/kW- hour for a power battery by 2020; and cost of overall battery pack should not exceed cost of the cells themselves by more than 20% by 2016) and for e-machines ($23/kilowatt by 2016).
HH-1 N/A - EPA program cancelled
HH-2 N/A - EPA program cancelled
HH-3 N/A - EPA program cancelled
HH-4 N/A - EPA program cancelled
HH-5 N/A - EPA program cancelled
PD-1 Develop and demonstrate advanced technology concepts that reduce the aerodynamic drag of a Class 8 highway tractor-trailer combination by 20%. Evaluate a stretch goal of 30% reduction in aerodynamic drag. (2021
PD-2 Develop and demonstrate low rolling resistance tires that can reduce vehicle rolling resistance and wheel weight for a Class 8 tractor-trailer. Demonstrate 35% reduction in rolling resistance. (2021)
PD-3 Develop and demonstrate technologies that reduce essential auxiliary loads by 50% for Class 8 tractor-trailers. (2021)
PD-4 Develop and demonstrate engine, transmission, and driveline systems that enhance engine cycle operating efficiency and reduce friction losses. (2021)
PD-5 Develop and demonstrate lightweight material and manufacturing processes that lead to a 10% reduction in tare weight for a tractor/trailer combination. Establish a long-term stretch goal of reducing combined vehicle weight by 20%. (2021)
PD-6 Increase heat-load rejected by thermal management systems by 20% without increasing radiator size. Develop and demonstrate technologies that reduce powertrain and driveline losses by 50%. (2021)
IR-1 Promote the incorporation of idle reduction (IR) equipment on new trucks as fuel saving devices as they are identified through the DOE SuperTruck Initiative.
IR-2 Establish a nationwide multi-mode IR education program.
IR-3 Work with OEM truck manufacturers to obtain data on the number of new trucks being ordered with IR options.

IR-4 Conduct a fleet survey to gather data on the amount of in-use idling hours that are accumulated by type of heavy-duty vehicle.
IR-5 Analyze data from the EPA SmartWay Transport Partnership to measure fuel savings and emissions reductions associated with the various type of IR equipment available.
IR-6 Develop improved IR systems to minimize fuel required, cost, and weight to meet hotel functions in sleeper cabs.
S-1 The 21CTP will work collaboratively with DOT to enhance safety primarily through a variety of crash avoidance strategies that include on-board vehicle technologies as well as operationally-focused programs designed to reduce crash risk. The overall goals of this collaboration are to 1) ensure that advancements in truck design and technology to improve fuel efficiency do not have any negative impacts on safety; and (2) conversely, to ensure that efforts to improve safety to not reduce efficiency—and, where possible actually contribute to improvements in overall motor carrier industry system efficiency.
EO-1 Develop and demonstrate technologies that minimize the impact of driver behavior for optimal acceleration efficiency by automatically controlling vehicle accelerations at a level for which the engine operates in its most efficient operational state for the current environment. Driver feedback information devices can also be implemented as a retrofit option for existing vehicles.
EO-2 Develop simple tools for the trucking industry that will provide estimates of the fuel savings potential of advanced efficiency technologies and technology combinations depending on specific usage information of a particular fleet (measured drive cycle data). The tools will provide cost and benefit analyses for the selection of technologies on a case-by-case basis when representative drive cycles for an individual fleet or owner-operator are available (and recommendations to the fleet for obtaining the drive cycles can be provided).
EO-3 Conduct a study to identify proposed ITS/connected vehicle technologies that offer significant fuel savings and quantify the reduction in fuel consumption for technologies that offer the greatest benefits. Select one technology, evaluate the benefits for fuel consumption as a function of market penetration and identify the infrastructure needs and costs for deployment of the technology to a level at which the benefits of vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) networking are realized.
EO-4 Establish a real-world test corridor for commercial vehicles focused on improving commercial vehicle operations, including fuel efficiency. The test corridor should include DSRC and WiMax technologies in the infrastructure, would involve one or more fleets enabled for DSRC/WiMax capability and outfitted with various applications designed for improved efficiency of commercial vehicles.
EO-5 Explore regulatory changes to permit the replacement of body-mounted mirrors with a camera-based system and quantify the fuel saving benefits associated with such a change.
EO-6 Demonstrate the fuel savings benefits and develop policy guidelines for extending the use of long combination vehicles (LCVs), particularly triple trailer units.
EO-7 Promote improved supply chain management strategies in the commercial freight industry with an objective to increase the loads carried per truck and reduce vehicle miles traveled.

The 21st Century Truck Partnership (21CTP) works to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, increase heavy-duty vehicle safety, and support research, development, and demonstration to initiate commercially viable products and systems. This report is the third in a series of three by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine that have reviewed the research and development initiatives carried out by the 21CTP. Review of the 21st Century Truck Partnership, Third Report builds on the Phase 1 and 2 reviews and reports, and also comments on changes and progress since the Phase 2 report was issued in 2012.
