Oak Ridge to lead auto supplier R&D partnership
Date:1/17/2008

he areas on which USAutoPARTs will initially focus are aligned with the Vehicle Technologies Program of DOEs Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. Similar support is planned by the U.S. Department of Defense and anticipated from other Federal Agencies as the partnership develops.

Coming on the heels of the President signing new energy legislation last month, this alliance with state government and industry demonstrates a shared commitment to advance highly efficient vehicle technologies that will help reduce our reliance on foreign energy and promote robust economic growth, DOE Under Secretary Albright said. Furthering the Administrations comprehensive effort to increase energy security, we are eager for this alliance to take shape so cleaner, more efficient vehicles can successfully move from the laboratory to the showroom.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory is the leading national laboratory for the Vehicle Technologies Program of DOEs Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy and is home to the National Transportation Research Center as well as the High Temperature Materials Laboratory and other research facilities where researchers address issues of energy efficiency, air quality and dependence on foreign oil through innovations in engine control strategies, advanced emissions control and measurement, materials, fuels, power electronics, and electric machines.

ORNL is uniquely suited to addressing the needs of American automotive suppliers, said Thom Mason, director of Oak Ridge National Laboratory. We have a broad portfolio of transportation research and expertise in all aspects of the business, from lightweight components made of carbon fiber to electric motors. This partnership will support DOEs mission and help insure Americas future in the automotive business.

USAutoPARTs will be located in Shelby Township, Mich., in a 56,000 square foot vehicle R&D center with established laboratory infrastructure that
