DOE seeks input on creation of new Clean Energy Manufacturing Institute

September 16, 2021

The U.S. Department of Energy announced a request for information (RFI) to help inform the creation of a new Clean Energy Manufacturing Institute focused on industrial decarbonization. Released by DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), the RFI seeks input from stakeholders in identifying key opportunities to decarbonize energy-intensive sectors across America’s economy through public-private collaboration.

The RFI requests input on two topic areas of interest, electrification of industrial processes and decarbonizing the metal manufacturing industry. Stakeholder input will help provide focus for the potential new institute to contribute technological advances for widespread industrial decarbonization.

This would be the seventh EERE-funded institute. Responses to the RFI are due on Sept. 23.
