DOE issued the first Funding Opportunity Announcement for the Advanced Energy Manufacturing and Recycling Grants program. Concept papers are required and are due on March 14, 2023 at 5 p.m. ET, with full applications due on June 8, 2023 at 5 p.m. ET.
Through this Funding Opportunity Announcement, as supported by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the Advanced Energy Manufacturing and Recycling Grant Program will support projects by small- and medium-sized manufacturing firms to establish new or re-equip or expand existing industrial facilities in eligible energy communities to produce or recycle advanced energy property.
Topic Area 1: In conjunction with the eligibility requirements set forth in the FOA, the objective of this topic area is to build a new manufacturing or recycling facility for the production or recycling, as applicable, of advanced energy property.
Topic Area 2: In conjunction with the eligibility requirements set forth in the FOA, the objective of this topic area is to re-equip or expand a manufacturing or recycling facility for the production or recycling, as applicable, of advanced energy property.
Estimated technical assistance application opening date, 1st quarter 2023. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) this week released a Request for Information (RFI) on its $750 million Advanced Energy Manufacturing and Recycling Grant Program. This program will enable small and medium-sized manufacturers to produce or recycle clean energy products or deploy cutting edge greenhouse gas emissions reduction equipment in response to coal mine and power plant closures. The program also includes priority for minority-owned manufacturing firms. DOE is seeking input on how to design the Advanced Energy Manufacturing and Recycling Grant program to bolster secure, resilient clean energy supply chains, support community development, create quality union jobs, and spur economic revitalization in energy communities across the nation. RFI responses must be received no later than 5 p.m. EDT on Sept. 16, 2022.
