Vehicle Systems Research

Supporting decision making for the adoption of advanced energy efficient transportation

The Vehicle Systems Research Group supports public decision-making for the adoption of advanced energy and efficient transportation technologies including hybrid electric, plug-in hybrid electric, and other advanced powertrain vehicles. Vehicle Systems Research includes advanced engine technologies, advanced power electronics and electric machines, and laboratory-to-roadside testing, evaluation, modeling, and analysis.

The program draws upon ORNL expertise in advanced engine technologies, advanced power electronics and electric machines, and laboratory-to-roadside testing, evaluation, modeling, and analysis to meet the research needs of the DOE Vehicle Technologies Office and to support public decision-making regarding the benefits of adopting advanced energy efficient transportation technologies.
