President Obama recently launched the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership, including an investment of up to $120 million from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) over three years to develop transformational manufacturing technologies and innovative materials that could enable industrial facilities to dramatically increase their energy efficiency. The Advanced Manufacturing Partnership is a national effort bringing together industry, universities, and the federal government to invest in emerging technologies that will create high-quality manufacturing jobs and enhance the nation’s global competitiveness. This clean energy investment in new energy-efficient manufacturing processes and novel materials will help U.S. manufacturers save money by reducing the energy needed to power their facilities.

“These investments will support the innovations that American manufacturers need to stay competitive in the global marketplace,” said Steven Chu, DOE secretary. “These breakthrough manufacturing processes, technologies, and materials will help American companies to reduce energy waste and lower costs.”

The selected projects will emphasize new processes and materials that are revolutionary in their design or impact and that are capable of being commercialized within the next five to seven years. By boosting investment in near-term technology development, the DOE is supporting projects that might otherwise take far longer to contribute to U.S. industrial competitiveness. The DOE expects to fund 35-50 cost-shared projects under the initiative.

Applicants must submit a Letter of Intent by September 1 in order to be eligible to submit a full application by October 5.
