Our latest summit, the American Energy & Manufacturing Competitiveness (AEMC) Northeast Regional Summit: Innovating for a Clean Energy Future, will be held on May 12 at the City College of New York. The AEMC partnership – established in 2012 – is a joint effort between the Department of Energy and the Council on Competitiveness. Registration is now open to take part in this fourth annual event.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced approximately $35 million in funding, subject to congressional appropriations, to assist small- and medium-sized U.S. manufacturers with increasing their energy efficiency, productivity, sustainability and competitiveness and to help address the shortage of engineering professionals with applied energy-related skills.
The U.S. Department of Energy's Advanced Manufacturing Office - as part of a Clean Energy Manufacturing Initiative - is supporting research into new technologies that could substantially cut the energy and cost of refrigeration.
The Clean Energy Manufacturing Analysis Center’s (CEMAC) first annual Research Highlights report, a compilation of exciting findings from its set of studies released in 2015, offers fresh insights on key challenges and opportunities in the rapidly growing global market for clean energy technologies.
As part of the Obama Administration's Mission Innovation effort to double clean energy research and development (R&D) investments over the next five years, the Energy Department today announced up to $25 million in available funding aimed at advancing technologies for energy-efficient electric motors through applied R&D.
The White House and the Department of Energy kicked-off a new initiative, the Energy Materials Network, to accelerate innovation around the clean energy manufacturing industry’s most pressing materials challenges. This network has the potential to revolutionize whole industries and is critical for the United States to compete globally in manufacturing in the 21st century.
Higher efficiency jet engines to save fuel; stronger fiberglass made with less energy for wind turbines and lightweight vehicles; next generation semiconductor devices for more efficient data centers: these are just a few of the manufacturing challenges that the Energy Department's ten new High Performance Computing for Manufacturing (HPC4Mfg) projects will tackle over the next year.
The Energy Department today announced $3 million for ten new projects that will enable private-sector companies to use high-performance computing resources at the department's national laboratories to tackle major manufacturing challenges.
The Clean Energy Manufacturing Initiative (CEMI) recently kicked off its new Technologist in Residence (TIR) pilot at an event at Argonne National Laboratory convening the pilot’s seven competitively selected technologist pairs, Energy Department officials, and national lab representatives. This two-year, $2.6 million pilot program is designed to strengthen U.S. clean energy manufacturing competitiveness and enhance the commercial impact of the Energy Department’s national laboratories.
Earlier this month, leaders in science and industry gathered at the Energy Department’s 2015 American Energy and Manufacturing Competitiveness's (AEMC) Summit in Washington, D.C. to showcase and celebrate the tremendous accomplishments to date of the Energy Department’s Clean Energy Manufacturing Initiative (CEMI), launched just two and a half years ago.
Today, the Energy Department announced new research and development (R&D) efforts as part of the Department's Clean Energy Manufacturing Initiative (CEMI). These two efforts—a national laboratory-industry collaboration pilot and a competitive solicitation to leverage national labs' high-performance computing capabilities—will contribute to CEMI's work to strengthen U.S. clean energy manufacturing competitiveness.
EERE offers webinars to the public on a range of subjects, from adopting the latest energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies, to training for the clean energy workforce. Webinars are free; however, advanced registration is typically required. You can also watch archived webinars and browse previously aired videos, slides, and transcripts.
The best young scientists and researchers in the U.S. have a new pathway to advance innovative research and development projects that could accelerate America’s clean energy future. It’s a new tech-to-market program called Cyclotron Road where top entrepreneurial researchers can develop cutting-edge clean energy technologies at the Energy Department’s Berkeley Lab.
The third annual American Energy & Manufacturing Competitiveness (AEMC) Summit September 15-16 in Washington, DC is shaping up to be our best yet. The summit will feature keynotes and panel discussions with Energy Department leaders, national lab representatives, and top U.S. manufacturing CEOs. Successful public-private partnership models discovered through the Clean Energy Manufacturing Initiative's (CEMI) work will be showcased. CEMI is focused on growing American manufacturing of clean energy products and boosting U.S. competitiveness through major improvements in manufacturing energy productivity.
New Small Business Vouchers Pilot will connect clean energy innovators across the country with the top-notch scientists, engineers, and world-class facilities at Energy Department National Laboratories.
The Carbon Fiber Technology Facility (CFTF) at the Energy Department’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory offers a unique, highly flexible, highly instrumented research space for demonstrating ways to scale up and bring down testing costs of carbon-fiber prototypes for use in new polymers and products to manufacture larger land-based wind turbine blades and lighter vehicles with improved fuel efficiency. The 42,000-square-foot facility can make up to 25 tons of carbon fiber each year, enabling industry to experiment with new carbon-fiber precursors, or base materials, at a small scale.
