EETD and Berkeley Lab's Engineering Division recently worked together to create a thermally insulated, more comfortable, and efficient car. The project is a collaboration between Berkeley Lab and Visteon Automotive Systems which is also funding the project. The research is associated with the Partnership for a New Generation of Vehicles (PNGV), which brings together U.S. government researchers and the United States Council for Automotive Research (USCAR).
