On January 24, 2020, as part of its sustainable transportation efforts, DOE announced a collaborative project with the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) to encourage the development of advanced fuels and efficient technologies in motorsports. Focused on vehicles at the racetrack, the collaboration was formalized by a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that names the combined effort the Green Racing Program (GRP). GRP aims to emphasize the importance of promoting reduced greenhouse gases (GHG); clean, fast, and efficient vehicle technologies in motorsports competition; the improvement of vehicle performance; reduced exhaust pollutants; and improved fuel economy. DOE plans to contribute and showcase technologies developed by its Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE). In its announcement, EERE explains that despite GRP’s focus on racetrack vehicles, this collaborative project presents an opportunity for the aforementioned technologies to take center stage, preparing to (soon) meet the needs of vehicles driven by the fans themselves.
