TRANSPORTATION TECHNOLOGY ENERGY OPTIONS
New transportation technologies and their potential contribution to the solution of the energy problem are discussed. DOE transportation technologies briefly discussed are: Stirling and gas-turbine engines; constant-speed accessory-drive system; heavy-duty diesel-truck bottoming cycle; continuously variable transmission; turbocompound diesel engine; gas-turbine bus; new hydrocarbons (broad-cut petroleum fuels); alcohol fuels; synthetic fuels; advanced fuels (hydrogen); electric and hybrid vehicles; marine-diesel bottoming cycle; coal/oil-slurry marine steam turbines; pipeline bottoming cycle; and medium-speed diesel alternative fuels.
