total funding: $17,000,000
max award: None
min award: None
cost sharing, matching: Yes
number of awards: 6
type of funding: Cooperative Agreement

Applications submitted under this area shall focus
on components, technologies,
and methods to efficiently utilize electricity through Peltier or similar
devices for advanced heating/cooling in vehicular applications. Using waste

heat as an energy source to directly generate cooling for the vehicle is
an acceptable approach.

Acceptable approaches include, but are not limited to:

- Use of Peltier heating/cooling systems with a COP >2.5 to achieve
energy savings compared to current systems.
- Thermoacoustic cooling, ejector cooling and adsorption and absorption
cooling with a COP>2.5.

This area provides specific opportunity for technologies that are suited to

convert thermal energy (heat transfer) losses to useful power or cooling

A specific target for this area is to demonstrate feasibility of improving
engine efficiency by 5% (e.g., from 40% brake efficiency to 42%). This is
ambitious target that would require the technology to recover approximately
of the losses.
