Energy Department Releases Industrial Decarbonization Roadmap

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has released a new “Industrial Decarbonization Roadmap” identifying key pathways to reduce industrial emissions in American manufacturing. The roadmap presents a staged research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) agenda for industry and government. DOE also announced a $104 million funding opportunity to advance industrial decarbonization technologies.

Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm and White House National Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy announced the roadmap during a roundtable at DOE with industry leaders and stakeholders from government and academia. The Roadmap identifies four key technological pillars to significantly reduce emissions for five key industrial subsectors. The DOE found that with the application of alternative approaches, 100% of annual CO2 emissions could be mitigated. The crosscutting decarbonization pillars are energy efficiency; industrial electrification; low-carbon fuels, feedstocks, and energy sources (LCFFES); and carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS). These pillars are applicable across all industrial subsector and have the capability to deliver near-term and future reductions as the GHG emissions intensity of the electrical grid decreases, technologies develop, and hard-to-abate sources are addressed.
