DOE intends to issue funding opportunity for Advanced Energy Manufacturing and Recycling Grant Program

The United States (U.S.) Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Manufacturing and Energy Supply Chains (MESC) intends to issue a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) titled “Bipartisan Infrastructure Law: Advanced Energy Manufacturing and Recycling Grant Program (Section 40209).” MESC intends to issue the FOA in the February 2023 timeframe, and the FOA will be funded by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). MESC plans to issue the FOA in February 2023.

DOE anticipates that the FOA will award financial assistance in the form of cooperative agreements or grants to small- and medium-sized manufacturers to support projects to build new, re-equip, or expand existing clean energy manufacturing or recycling facilities in coal transition communities.

Under BIL Section 40209, the following types of energy property may be produced or recycled through an Advanced Energy Property Project:

  • Property designed to be used to produce energy from the sun, water, wind, geothermal or hydrothermal resources, enhanced geothermal systems, or other renewable resources;
  • Fuel cells, microturbines, or energy storage systems and components; • Electric grid modernization equipment or components;
  • Property designed for use in carbon capture, transport, removal, use, or sequestration / storage;
  • Equipment designed to refine, electrolyze, or blend any fuel, chemical, or product that is renewable or low-carbon and low-emission;
  • Property designed to produce energy conservation technologies (including for residential, commercial, and industrial applications);
  • Light-, medium-, or heavy-duty electric or fuel cell vehicles, electric or fuel cell locomotives, electric or fuel cell maritime vessels, or electric or fuel cell planes; technologies, components, and materials of those vehicles, locomotives, maritime vessels, or planes; and charging or refueling infrastructure associated with those vehicles, locomotives, maritime vessels, or planes;
  • Hybrid vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating of not less than 14,000 pounds; and technologies, components, and materials for those vehicles; and
  • Other advanced energy property designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
