Representatives of DOE and companies engaged in automotive design, specifically Stirling, turbine, and electric engines, testified on the progress in the programs and the effect of reduced support from the administration for alternative energy systems. Noting that economic and security concerns associated with US dependence upon imported oil are unchanged, committee members objected to the 30% cut in the 1986 budget for research on alternative automotive engines and fuels. DOE representatives argued that the cut is consistent with the strategy of minimizing federal control and involvement in energy markets while promoting a balanced energy mix. Fund allocations are aimed at improving energy efficiency and fuel flexibility. Testimony by the engine designers reported the status and needs off the projects. An appendix with letters from affected industries and research groups follows the testimony of the four principal witnesses. of the four principal witnesses.
