Program Summary

The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy announced a $156 million funding opportunity that will advance high impact applied research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) projects to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across the U.S. industrial sector. The FOA, led by EERE’s Industrial Efficiency and Decarbonization Office (IEDO), will drive innovation to develop the next-generation technologies required to decarbonize industry, revitalize American manufacturing, create good-paying jobs, and improve community health.

Decarbonizing the industrial sector is critical to achieving the nation’s climate goals, as it is currently responsible for approximately one third of domestic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. DOE is building an innovation pipeline to accelerate the development and adoption of industrial decarbonization technologies with investments spanning foundational science; research, development, deployment, and demonstrations (RDD&D); and technical assistance and workforce development.

IEDO’s efforts in this area are part of DOE’s new Technologies for Industrial Emissions Reduction Development (TIEReD) Program which leverages resources across different technology offices to invest in fundamental science, research, development, and initial pilot-scale demonstrations projects.

Topic Areas

The FOA includes the following topics:

  • Topic 1: Decarbonizing Industrial Heat
  • Topic 2: Low-Carbon Fuels Utilization RD&
  • Topic 3: Exploratory Cross-Sector R&D
    • Subtopic 3a: Enabling Flexible Industrial Energy Use
    • Subtopic 3b: Enhanced Thermal Conductivity Materials
  • Topic 4: Decarbonizing Chemicals
  • Topic 5: Decarbonizing Iron and Steel
  • Topic 6: Decarbonizing Food and Beverage Products
  • Topic 7: Decarbonizing Cement and Concrete
  • Topic 8: Decarbonizing Forest

Internal Review Process

UCI may submit no more than one (1) concept paper per topic area under this FOA. Therefore interested applicants are asked to submit the following application materials to the Office of Research (via the UCI Review application systemby April 3, 2023 at 10:00 AM PDT:

  • Research Project Summary– No longer than 1 page, and it must identify which topic area the proposed project will address.
  • CV or BioSketchof PI and any co-PIs (each CV no longer than 2 pages)

If there are two or more applications addressing a given topic matter, an ad hoc review committee will be convened to determine which application moves forward in the submission process. The selected candidates for each topic area will be notified as quickly as possible in order to allow them time to meet the concept paper submission deadline of April 17, 2023 at 2:00 PM PDT.

Please refer to the full FOA before preparing an internal application. Questions about the internal review process may be directed to Dr. Mike Gallo in the Office of Research at,
