IEDO provides funding, management, and the strategic direction necessary for a balanced national program of research, development, and demonstration (RD&D), as well as technical assistance and workforce development, to drive improvements in energy, materials, and production efficiency and to accelerate decarbonization across the industrial sector. IEDO’s RD&D strategy focuses on two complementary approaches: tackling subsector-specific decarbonization challenges in energy- and emissions-intensive industries and pursuing crosssector challenges that are common across many industries.

This notice is intended to announce a potential FOA that will aim to advance the strategies identified in the Industrial Decarbonization Roadmap and support the goals of the Industrial Heat Shot through a focus on cross-sector approaches for industrial decarbonization. Cross-sector technologies are decarbonization- enabling components, equipment, and systems that underpin processes and products across the industrial sector. Key themes of IEDOs strategy for cross-sector technologies include: 1. Transforming electricity into useful industrial heat cost competitively and without putting undue stress on the grid; 2. Developing combustion systems that enable fuel switching to hydrogen and other low- carbon fuels; 3. Developing systems for the onsite production, storage, delivery, and recovery of energy; 4. Reducing barriers to the integration of low-carbon electricity with industrial loads; 5. Improving the energy efficiency of industrial processes; and 6. Reducing the energy used for industrial water and wastewater treatment. The FOA will address a subset of these priorities, as described in the topics listed below. Topics 1 and 2 are anticipated to allow for multiple tiers of funding: a lower tier for research and development-only projects and a higher tier for projects that include scope for technology demonstration integrated into industrial operations. All topics are expected to allow applications between Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 3 and 7. Topic Area 1 - Electrification of Industrial Heat Topic Area 2 - Next-Generation Energy Systems Topic Area 3 - Decarbonizing Organic Wastewater and Wet Waste Treatment EERE plans to issue the FOA on or about November 2023 via the EERE eXCHANGE website If Applicants wish to receive official notifications and information from EERE regarding this FOA, they should register in EERE eXCHANGE. When the FOA is released, applications will be accepted only through EERE eXCHANGE.
