This programmatic plan identifies the ecosystem, resource, physical environment, health safety, and socio-economic issues associated with the DOE research, development, demonstration, and assessment of thirteen transportation technologies. These include the Stirling and gas turbine engines, constant speed accessory drive system, bottoming cycle for heavy duty trucks, continuously variable transmission, new hydrocarbons (brood-cut petroleum fuels), alcohol and synthetic fuels, hydrogen, electric and hybrid vehicles, pipeline bottoming cycle, and stratified-charge concept. The EDP presents a research and assessment strategy for resolving any potentially adverse environmental issues stemming from these technologies. The EDP process provides a framework for: incorporating environmental considerations into agency planning processes at the earliest stages; resolving environmental issues concurrently with energy technology development; and assuring that adverse environmental effects are mitigated through sound technological design and are at the same level of importance as technological, fiscal, and institutional issues in decision-making. Information contained in this EDP constitutes an inventory of the status of environmental problems and a plan for resolving these problems. (ERA citation 03:037534)
