DOE announces $70 M for cybersecurity institute for energy efficient manufacturing

March 28, 2019

This week, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced up to $70 million for a Clean Energy Manufacturing Innovation Institute to develop technologies that will advance U.S. manufacturing competitiveness, energy efficiency, and innovation. This institute will focus on early-stage research for advancing cybersecurity in energy efficient manufacturing.

DOE identified two major high priority challenge areas where collaborative R&D can help U.S. manufacturers remain resilient and globally competitive against cyberattacks: 1) Securing Automation and 2) Securing the Supply Chain Network. DOE plans on funding one new award for up to five years, subject to appropriations. Concept papers are due on May 15, 2019. The funding application and submission requirements are available here.
