Mission and Goals


  • Develop and demonstrate new, energy-efficient processing and materials technologies at a scale adequate to prove their value to manufacturers and spur investment.

    • Develop broadly applicable manufacturing processes that reduce energy intensity and improve production.

    • Develop and demonstrate pervasive materials technologies, enabling improved products that use less energy throughout their lifecycles.

  • Conduct technical assistance activities that promote use of advanced technologies and better energy management to capture U.S. competitive advantage.


Reduce by 50% in 10 years the life-cycle energy consumption of manufactured goods by targeting the production and use of advanced manufacturing technologies.
