DOE Allots $139 Million to Advance Vehicle Tech

U.S. Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette says $139 million in federal funding for 55 projects across the country will support new and innovative advanced vehicle technologies. Six of these innovative projects will be led by teams in Michigan.

“Technological innovation is key to revitalizing the U.S.’ manufacturing competitiveness, especially in the transportation sector,” says Brouillette.

“I’m excited to announce that six of the 55 total projects will be led by teams here in Michigan, a state that has been the backbone of the U.S. automobile industry for years. The Trump Administration is committed to investing in technologies that expand access to affordable mobility and provide consumers with a wide range of transportation options to meet their needs,” he adds.
