Department of Energy Announces $89 Million for Innovative Manufacturing Technologies

Wednesday, May 8, 2019
United States Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Rick Perry announced this week $89 million to support innovative, advanced manufacturing research and development projects. This DOE funding-opportunity announcement (FOA) targets key DOE priorities such as domestic manufacturing for energy storage. America’s manufacturing sector, which has created almost 500,000 jobs since 2017 and more than 250,000 jobs in the last year alone, also uses 25 percent of the nation’s energy.

“Embracing new technologies that drive innovation in American manufacturing is the key to creating real-world progress that significantly improves energy efficiency in manufacturing,” says Perry. “By focusing on energy-related advanced manufacturing technologies, we are building a new era of manufacturing that will stimulate the economy, create jobs and build American energy independence.”

The FOA requests proposals in three areas:
● Innovations for the manufacture of advanced materials;
● Lower thermal budget processes for industrial efficiency and productivity; and
● Connected, flexible and efficient manufacturing facilities and energy systems.

With the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s Advanced Manufacturing Office leading this initiative, DOE anticipates up to 55 awards over three years. A cost-share of at least 20 percent will be required for research and development projects. View the funding application and submission requirements here. Concept papers are due June 20, 2019.
