Influencing the future of vehicles and fuels

Argonne’s transportation research efforts bring together scientists and engineers from many disciplines to find cost-effective solutions to critical issues like foreign-oil dependency and greenhouse gas emissions.

As one of the U.S. Department of Energy’s lead laboratories for research in hybrid powertrains, batteries, and fuel-efficient technologies, Argonne’s transportation program is critical to advancing the development of next-generation vehicles. Patented technologies created by Argonne — including solutions for the smart grid, electric vehicles, emissions control and more — will help our nation conserve energy and protect the environment.

Argonne works with existing and start-up businesses to license our technologies and to develop, analyze, and test new and emerging technologies.
