The U.S. Department of Energy announced today $17 million in grants to support the development of battery technology for plug-in hybrid vehicles and ethanol, two areas in the energy debate where officials in Washington and Detroit are closely aligned.

The money will be offered as two separate solicitation grants, one for $14 million for the plug-in technology and another $3 million for ethanol. The money for battery development aims to improve the technology's performance. The $3 million grants will support engineering advances to improve the E85 flex-fuel blend.
