The Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) plays a leading role in increasing energy efficiency along with decarbonizing the industrial sector. AMO drives the innovation and deployment that can lead to a more resilient, robust, and competitive domestic clean energy manufacturing sector that provides economic opportunities across diverse communities. As part of its industrial efficiency and decarbonization efforts, AMO supports applied research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) targeting the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from high emitting industrial sectors and through cross-sector technologies relevant across multiple industrial sectors. Significant decarbonization of the industrial sector is essential to achieving the overall goal of economy-wide decarbonization by 2050 and creating good paying jobs; while ensuring that U.S. industry remains globally competitive and production is not transferred to locations with higher carbon emissions.

Building a clean and equitable energy economy and addressing the climate crisis is a top priority of the Biden Administration. This FOA will advance the Biden Administration’s goals to achieve carbon pollution-free electricity by 2035 and to “deliver an equitable, clean energy future, and put the United States on a path to achieve net-zero emissions, economy-wide, by no later than 2050" to the benefit of all Americans. The Department of Energy is committed to pushing the frontiers of science and engineering, catalyzing clean energy jobs through research, development, demonstration, and deployment (RDD&D), and ensuring environmental justice and inclusion of underserved communities. The projects selected under this FOA are expected to contribute to the Justice40 Initiative, which set a goal that 40% of the overall benefits of government’s climate and clean energy investments will flow to disadvantaged communities.

The research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) activities to be funded under this FOA will support the government-wide approach to the climate crisis by driving the innovation that can lead to the deployment of clean energy technologies, which are critical for climate protection. Specifically, this FOA will fund high-impact, applied research and development and prototype or pilot-scale technology validation and demonstration projects in order to expedite the adoption of transformational industrial technology necessary to increase energy efficiency across industry and in high GHG-emitting industrial subsectors, reducing both energy usage and GHG emissions. This includes cross-sector industrial decarbonization approaches via opportunities in energy efficiency; industrial electrification; low carbon fuels, feedstocks and energy sources; and industrial carbon capture and utilization. This FOA and its associated projects are separate from any forthcoming efforts to be funded under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, including activities related to Industrial Emissions Demonstration Projects.

The eXCHANGE system is currently designed to enforce hard deadlines for Concept Paper and Full Application submissions. The APPLY and SUBMIT buttons automatically disable at the defined submission deadlines. The intention of this design is to consistently enforce a standard deadline for all applicants.

Applicants that experience issues with submissions PRIOR to the FOA Deadline: In the event that an Applicant experiences technical difficulties with a submission, the Applicant should contact the eXCHANGE helpdesk for assistance (exchangehelp@hq.doe.gov). The eXCHANGE helpdesk and/or the EERE eXCHANGE System Administrators (eXCHANGE@ee.doe.gov) will assist the Applicant in resolving all issues.

Applicants that experience issues with submissions that result in a late submission: In the event that an Applicant experiences technical difficulties with a submission that results in a late submission, the Applicant should contact the eXCHANGE helpdesk for assistance (exchangehelp@hq.doe.gov). The eXCHANGE helpdesk and/or the EERE eXCHANGE System Administrators (eXCHANGE@ee.doe.gov) will assist the Applicant in resolving all issues (including finalizing the submission on behalf of, and with the Applicant's concurrence). DOE will only accept late applications when the Applicant has a) encountered technical difficulties beyond their control; b) has contacted the eXCHANGE helpdesk for assistance; and c) has submitted the application through eXCHANGE within 24 hours of the FOA's posted deadline.

DE-FOA-0002803: Notice of Intent to Issue FOA DE-FOA-0002804 - Industrial Efficiency and Decarbonization FOA

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) intends to issue, on behalf of the Advanced Manufacturing Office, a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled “Industrial Efficiency and Decarbonization FOA”.

The Biden Administration has laid out a bold agenda to address the climate crisis and build a clean and equitable energy economy that achieves carbon pollution free electricity by 2035, and puts the United States on a path to achieve net-zero emissions, economy-wide, by no later than 2050[1] to the benefit of all Americans.

The Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) plays a leading role in decarbonizing and revitalizing the industrial sector. AMO drives the innovation and deployment that can lead to a more resilient, robust, and competitive domestic clean energy manufacturing sector that provides economic opportunities across diverse communities. As part of its industrial efficiency and decarbonization efforts, AMO supports applied research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) targeting the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from high emitting industrial sectors and through cross-sector technologies relevant across multiple industrial sectors. Significant decarbonization of the industrial sector is essential to achieving the overall goal of economy-wide decarbonization by 2050 and creating good paying jobs.

The RD&D activities anticipated to be funded under this FOA would support the government-wide approach to the climate crisis by driving the innovation that can lead to industrial decarbonization. Specifically, this anticipated FOA would fund high-impact, applied research and development and prototype or pilot-scale demonstration projects in order to expedite the adoption of transformational industrial technology necessary to reduce energy usage and GHG emissions from high GHG-emitting industrial subsectors. This includes cross-sector industrial decarbonization approaches, via opportunities in energy efficiency; industrial electrification; low carbon fuels, feedstocks and energy sources; and industrial carbon capture and utilization. This anticipated FOA and its associated projects are separate from any forthcoming efforts to be funded under provisions of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, including activities related to Industrial Emissions Demonstration Projects.

[1] Executive Order 14008, “Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad,” January 27, 2021.

This notice of intent (NOI) is issued so that interested parties are aware of EERE’s intention to issue this FOA in the near term. All the information contained in this NOI is subject to change. EERE will not respond to questions concerning this NOI. Once the FOA has been released, EERE will provide an avenue for potential applicants to submit questions.
