This multitopic FOA is a joint effort between EERE’s Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Technologies Office (AMMTO), the Building Technologies Office (BTO), and DOE’s Office of Electricity (OE). The mission of AMMTO is to advance energy-related materials and manufacturing technologies to increase domestic competitiveness and build a clean, decarbonized economy. This is in alignment with AMMTO’s vision for the future – a competitive U.S. manufacturing sector that accelerates the adoption of innovative material and manufacturing technologies in support of a clean, decarbonized economy. Until October 9,
2022, the relevant workshops and prior research highlighted in the various subtopic descriptions below were supported by EERE’s Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO). On October 9, AMO officially split into two offices within EERE: the Industrial Efficiency and Decarbonization Office (IEDO) and AMMTO.
BTO develops, demonstrates, and accelerates the adoption of cost-effective technologies, techniques, tools and services that enable high-performing, energy-efficient and demand-flexible residential and commercial buildings in both the new and existing buildings markets, in support of an equitable
transition to a decarbonized energy system by 2050, starting with a decarbonized power sector by 2035.
OE provides national leadership to ensure that the Nation’s energy delivery system is secure, resilient, and reliable. Through research and development, OE develops new technologies to improve the infrastructure that effectively and securely brings electricity into our homes, offices, and factories, and also
oversees the Federal and state electricity policies and programs that shape electricity system planning and market operations. Specifically, the goals of this multi-topic FOA are to:
1) Validate and demonstrate next generation materials and manufacturing processes including domestic pilot demonstrations and related technologies to support the transition to U.S. manufacturing;
2) Enable environmentally and socially responsible domestic manufacturing with diversified domestic supply of feedstocks including from recycled goods; and
3) Mature nascent technologies, processes, and methods that improve the performance and market penetration of clean energy technologies and emerging building efficiency technologies.
