SmartWay Technology Program
About the SmartWay Technology Program
EPA's SmartWay Technology program develops test protocols, reviews strategies and verifies the performance of vehicles, technologies and equipment that have the potential to reduce greenhouse gases and other air pollutants from freight transport. The program establishes credible performance criteria and reviews test data to ensure that vehicles, equipment and technologies will help fleets improve their efficiency and reduce emissions.
SmartWay Verified Technologies
EPA has evaluated the fuel saving benefits of various devices through grants, cooperative agreements, emissions and fuel economy testing, demonstration projects and technical literature review. As a result, EPA has determined the following types of technologies provide fuel saving and/or emission reducing benefits when used properly in their designed applications:
- Idle Reduction Technologies
- Aerodynamic Technologies
- Low Rolling Resistance Tires
- Retrofit Technologies
Within each of these categories, EPA has verified specific products. EPA continues to evaluate and verify new products. Although EPA has verified the fuel saving and/or emission reducing benefits of the listed products, EPA does not endorse the purchase of products or services from any specific vendor. EPA urges you to compare products, services, and prices before making your purchase. EPA cannot confer verification on any product not listed below.

General Grant Eligibility Note: Equipment purchased with funds from National Clean Diesel Emission Reduction Program (DERA) grants must be on the SmartWay verified list below) or on the verified diesel retrofit technologies list at the time of acquisition to be eligible. These lists are regularly updated as new products are verified.
EPA-designated SmartWay Tractors and Trailers also qualify as "vehicle replacements" for purchase using DERA funds. EPA-designated SmartWay Tractor and Trailers are equipped with SmartWay-verified technologies at point of sale.
