The 2018 U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Vehicle Technologies Office (VTO) Annual Merit Review Meeting (AMR) was held June 18-21, 2018, in Arlington, VA. The review encompassed all of the work done by VTO: 235 individual activities were reviewed by 247 reviewers. A total of 1,202 individual review responses were received for the VTO technical reviews.

The objective of the meeting was to review the accomplishments and plans for VTO over the previous 12 months, and provide an opportunity for industry, government, and academia to give inputs to DOE on the Office with a structured and formal methodology. The meeting also provided attendees with a forum for interaction and technology information transfer.

The results from the review are contained in the following report. Reports from past years are available on the Annual Progress Reports page.
