DoD, DoE team up on energy efficient vehicles

The Energy Department and the Defense Department are teaming up to create a new generation of energy efficient military vehicles. The Advanced Vehicle Power Technology Alliance will drive joint research money into a new generation of engines and transmissions, new lightweight materials, alternative fuels and hybrid propulsion systems. Researchers even plan to develop technologies that can harvest excess body heat from a vehicle’s passengers and turn it into electrical energy that can power various systems in the vehicle.
