The Co-Optimization of Fuels & Engines (Co-Optima) initiative is jointly sponsored by the Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office and Vehicle Technologies Office.
The U.S. Department of Energy's multi-year Co-Optima initiative relies on the combined expertise of the country's leading researchers from multiple national laboratories, universities, and industry to help guide the direction of research and development.
National Laboratory Consortium
The broad range of fuel and engine innovations necessary for Co-Optima success cannot be achieved by any single institution. It requires the combined expertise of the country's leading researchers across multiple national laboratories, universities, and industries, with the active engagement of key stakeholders, including:
- Light- and heavy-duty vehicle original equipment manufacturers
- Energy companies and refiners
- Fuel producers, fuel distributors, and retailers
- Federal, state, and non-government agencies
- Universities and other research institutions.
A Co-Optima Stakeholder Listening Day provided a forum for input on the initiative.
