Internal combustion engines are expected to be the dominant power source for ground and marine transportation as well as distributed power generation in the following decades. Fuel economy and emissions regulations necessitate the development of advanced combustion technologies that will offer higher efficiency levels compared to existing technologies while minimizing emissions formation. This presentation will discuss the state-of-the-art in advanced combustion engines and present a technical road map for addressing the energy efficiency needs of the future on a national and global basis.
