Did you know, the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Laboratories are home to 32 of the fastest supercomputers on Earth? Scientists and researchers at the national labs use these supercomputers to accelerate research by creating models from complex data sets. Now, two new Vehicle Technologies Office (VTO) initiatives—High Performance Computing for Mobility (HPC4Mobility) and Big… Read More.
Since the start, natural gas vehicles have maintained an impressive safety record—in large part due to stringent industry codes and standards that have governed use of the fuel. Compressed natural gas (CNG) codes deal not only with the vehicles, but also with the design and use of vehicle maintenance facilities. All CNG-related codes are periodically… Read More.

Electric vehicle (EV) batteries charge by moving ions through a liquid electrolyte. As the temperatures outside drop, the electrolyte in lithium ion EV batteries thickens and it becomes more difficult for ions to move through (much like the challenge of walking through snow versus dry pavement). This increased resistance results in less EV battery range… Read More.
