Department of Energy Launches $6 Billion Industrial Demonstrations Program

Department of Energy Launches $6 Billion Industrial Demonstrations Program

The Department of Energy (DOE) has announced approximately $6 billion in funding to accelerate decarbonization projects in energy-intensive industries under a new “Industrial Demonstrations Program” funded by the 2021 Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and 2022 Inflation Reduction Act. The Program will focus on high-emitting industries where decarbonization technologies will have the greatest impact, such as iron and steel, aluminum, cement and concrete, and other energy-intensive industrial processes.

According to DOE estimates, the industrial sector contributes nearly one third of the nation’s carbon emissions. The Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations (OCED), in collaboration with the Office of Manufacturing and Energy Supply Chains (MESC) and the Industrial Efficiency and Decarbonization Office (IEDO), will manage the program and provide up to 50% of the cost of each project. For this funding announcement, DOE seeks first-of-a-kind or early-stage commercial-scale projects and expects to award projects from the highest emitting industries involving cross-cutting technologies that have the greatest potential, directly or indirectly, to achieve significant decarbonization domestically and globally. 
 
Concept papers are due by April 21, 2023, and full applications are due by August 4, 2023. Read the full DOE funding opportunity announcement here.
