Energy Department’s EERE Announces Funding to Support Advanced Manufacturing

Today, the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) announced up to $35 million in available funding to support early-stage, innovative technologies and solutions in advanced manufacturing that are not significantly represented in EERE’s current portfolio.

eereEERE’s Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) works with universities, national laboratories, and for-profit and nonprofit partners to identify and solve technology challenges in manufacturing. This new funding opportunity and its resulting projects will allow EERE to perform early-stage research and development of new technologies not currently covered in AMO’s technology portfolio and will encourage contributions from new partners. Successful projects will reduce the technical uncertainty and develop new knowledge associated with potential breakthrough materials, processes and tools for U.S. manufacturers that could improve their competitiveness and enhance their energy efficiency.

This funding opportunity addresses three topic areas that consist of multiple subtopics.

Topic Area 1: Advanced Materials – This topic area focuses on advancing innovative materials, devices, and systems for energy-saving opportunities and improved functionality.

Topic Area 2: Advanced Processes – This topic area focuses on advancing transformational, next-generation process technologies with the potential to significantly exceed the current state of the art.

Topic Area 3: Modeling and Analysis Tools for Materials and Manufacturing – This topic area focuses on optimizing how manufacturers use energy and materials across the lifecycle of their products through information technology and knowledge systems.

eereAMO anticipates making approximately 24 to 40 awards to fund projects for up to 36 months. Individual awards may vary from $250,000 to $2.5 million.
