Highly-Efficient Opposed Piston Engine For Hybrid Vehicles (“HOPE-Hybrid”)
Project Innovation + Advantages:
Achates Power will design and demonstrate a more efficient electrified internal combustion engine that will significantly reduce petroleum consumption and carbon dioxide emissions in the United States.
The new engine design will have better fuel economy, which could reduce the demand for imported oil.
This technology has the potential to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter emissions from vehicles, helping to improve air quality.
This team’s engine design could be extremely cost effective and allow for greater vehicle fuel efficiency at a competitive cost.
