Technology Solicitations & Verification Opportunities
Distributed Electrical Generation and Combined Heating/Cooling and Power Technologies

The ETV Greenhouse Gas Technology Center, operated by Southern Research Institute (SRI), is soliciting vendors for verification testing of technologies associated with distributed electrical generation (i.e., fuel cells, Stirling engines, reciprocating engines, fuel treatment/reformers), including combined heating/cooling and power applications (e.g., waste heat recovery for space heating, water heating, thermally activated chillers/refrigeration, dehumidification, etc.). For more information, please contact Richard Adamson, SRI, at (919) 806-3456 or adamson@sri.org.

On Board Idle Reduction Technology Verification Program

The EPA’s ETV Greenhouse Gas Technology Center and Southern Research Institute are seeking to develop partnerships with organizations and fleet owners interested in the performance verification and demonstration of on-board idle reduction technologies for medium and heavy duty diesel trucks. The GHG Center is also soliciting developers and vendors of on board idle reduction technologies that are interested in participating in verification/demonstration programs. The Verification Program will consist of independent, third party in-use testing and data collection using standard testing protocols for idle reduction technology performance (including emission reductions, fuel economy improvements, ability to perform cab heating and cooling, meet auxiliary loads, etc.). Long term testing may also be included to evaluate durability, maintenance requirements, seasonal impacts, etc. Technologies must be commercial-ready or near commercial ready. Examples include: auxiliary power units/gensets (diesel, fuel cell, others), fuel/battery operated heaters, cab cooling systems, and others. For additional information, please contact Tim Hansen, Southern Research Institute, at (919) 806-3456 or hansen@sri.org

Diesel Hybrid Technology Verification Program

The EPA’s ETV Greenhouse Gas Technology Center and Southern Research Institute are seeking to develop partnerships with organizations and fleet owners interested in the performance verification and demonstration of diesel hybrid technologies, including diesel-electric hybrids, diesel-hydraulic hybrids, and hybrid transmissions for medium and heavy duty diesel trucks. The GHG Center is also soliciting vendors of hybrid powertrains and advanced transmissions that are interested in participating in verification/demonstration programs. The Verification Program will consist of independent, third party testing and data collection using standard testing protocols for in-use technology performance (including emission reductions, fuel economy improvements, and vehicle performance, etc.). Long term testing may also be included to evaluate durability, maintenance requirements, seasonal impacts, etc. Technologies must be commercial-ready or near commercial ready. For additional information, please contact Tim Hansen, Southern Research Institute, at (919) 806-3456 or hansen@sri.org.

Hydrogen technologies

The EPA’s ETV Greenhouse Gas Technology Center and Southern Research Institute are seeking to develop partnerships with organizations interested in the performance verification and demonstration of hydrogen infrastructure technologies including hydrogen generation reforming technologies, end-use applications including fuel cells and engines,, storage technologies, and hydrogen safety technologies (i.e. leak detection systems for refueling stations, etc.). Technologies may be either stationary or mobile. The GHG Center is also soliciting vendors of hydrogen technologies and potential fleet owners that are interested in participating in verification/demonstration programs. The Verification Program will consist of independent, third party testing and data collection using, where available, standard testing protocols to evaluate technology performance and impacts (including emission reduction, efficiency and other performance parameters as required). Where practical, testing will be performed in-service under normal operating conditions. Technologies must be commercial-ready or near commercial-ready. For additional information, please contact Richard Adamson, Southern Research Institute, at (919) 806-3456 (x23) or adamson@sri.org.
