DOE to Spend $121 Million to Lower Emissions in Industrial Sector

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Industrial Efficiency and Decarbonization Office (IEDO) announced a notice of intent (NOI) to issue a $83 million funding opportunity that will decrease emissions in industrial subsectors that are hardest to decarbonize.

The DOE also announced a $38 million funding opportunity that would increase the cross-sector technologies required to create a clean energy economy, according to a statement

The U.S. industrial sector produces one-third of all energy-related domestic GHG emissions. 

The NOI and FOA will focus on a two-pronged research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) strategy to drive industrial decarbonization: tackling the complex systems at the heart of the most energy- and emissions-intensive industries and pursuing cross-sectoral enabling technologies for challenges that are common across many industries.

The Cross-Sector Technologies (CST) FOA focuses on high-impact, applied research, development, and pilot demonstration projects to advance the transformational cross-sector technologies and innovations required to reduce energy use and GHG emissions across the industrial sector. FOA topics include electrification of industrial heat, efficient energy use in industrial systems, and decarbonizing organic wastewater and wet waste treatment.

The Energy- and Emissions-Intensive Industries (EEII) funding opportunity will focus on applied RD&D for the highest GHG-emitting industrial subsectors, specifically chemicals and fuels, iron and steel, food and beverage, building and infrastructure materials (including cement and concrete, asphalt pavements and glass) and forest products.
