  • Original Grant - Apr 7, 2004
Applications Due:

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

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
also
an acceptable approach.

Acceptable approaches include, but are not limited to:

- Use of Peltier heating/cooling systems with a COP >2.5 to achieve
significant
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
capacity.

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
an
ambitious target that would require the technology to recover approximately
10%
of the losses.
