Presentation Summary

• The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in collaboration with a USABC Workgroup analyzed the trade-offs between vehicle fuel economy and reducing the decade-old minimum energy requirement for power-assist HEVs resulting in a new set of lower-energy ESS (LEESS) targets that could be satisfied by a variety of technologies.
• NREL has developed a hybrid electric vehicle test platform for in-vehicle performance and fuel economy validation testing of the hybrid system using lower energy ESS devices based on these new targets.
• Hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) test platform approach and development.
• In vehicle evaluation and results from the test platform using a lithium-ion capacitor (LIC) energy storage system.
