US Department of Energy joins IMSA Green Racing program

25 January 2020

The International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) has announced the addition of the US Department of Energy (DOE) as a partner in its IMSA Green Racing program. It joins existing partners the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and SAE International.

This extension further helps IMSA pursue Green Racing protocols and its own IMSA Green program. These programs keep its racing relevant for manufacturers and marketing partners by using proactive environmental responsibility. The government partnerships allow IMSA to collaborate with official partners such as Michelin and VP Racing Fuels to advance these important initiatives.

“IMSA is thrilled to extend its partnership with the DOE as part of the IMSA Green program,” said IMSA president John Doonan. “Their addition to our existing relationships with the EPA and SAE International show the commitment of these agencies in working with us in the consistently changing mobility landscape. These affiliations prove motorsports, and in particular IMSA, can be innovative in this space while remaining attractive to our stakeholders and fans.”

“Working with IMSA provides a great opportunity to showcase cutting-edge technologies for clean and efficient vehicles,” said assistant secretary for energy efficiency and renewable energy Daniel R Simmons. “The past association between IMSA and DOE has been critical to the development and implementation of this program and we welcome the renewal of this relationship.”

IMSA is focused on identifying ways to return to the Green Challenge Championship status as it defined in the SAE J2880 Green Racing protocols which were first published in 2008 and revised in 2014. Currently the sanctioning body operates at the Green Racing Series level.
