The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), which is part of the US Department of Energy, has announced a $156m funding opportunity to help advance high-impact applied research, development, and demonstration projects to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across the US industrial sector
The funding opportunity announcement, led by EERE’s Industrial Efficiency and Decarbonization Office (IEDO), is aimed at driving innovation to develop the next-generation technologies required to decarbonise industry and revitalise US manufacturing.
In 2020, the industrial sector accounted for 33% of the country’s primary energy use and 30% of energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The industrial sector is also one of the most complex sectors due to the wide diversity of energy inputs, processes, and operations.
The proposition is, says the DOE, rooted in the principles identified in the 2022 Industrial Decarbonization Roadmap. This investment is part of the innovation pipeline that DOE is building to accelerate the development and adoption of industrial decarbonization technologies.
