The Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) of the US Department of Energy is seeking information concerning the current state and future development of automotive technologies that can improve the energy efficiency of fully automated vehicles (AVs).

The purpose of this RFI is solely to solicit input for ARPA-E’s consideration to inform the possible formulation of future research, development, and commercialization programs intended to reduce the energy burden of future automotive transportation, specifically with regard to the deployment of high-efficiency AVs. ARPA-E will not provide funding or compensation for any information submitted in response to this RFI, and ARPA-E may use information submitted to this RFI on a non-attribution basis. This RFI provides the broader research and development community with an opportunity to contribute information, views and opinions regarding the state of the art and the future development of highly energy-efficient vehicle technologies for L4-L5 AVs. Based on the input provided in response to this RFI and other considerations, ARPA-E may decide to issue a FOA. If a FOA is published, it will be issued under a new FOA number. No FOA exists at this time. ARPA-E reserves the right to not issue a FOA in this area.
