US Department of Energy expands Clean Energy Manufacturing Initiative

Energy Department takes major steps to boost energy productivity and manufacturing in the United States. .

The Department of Energy today announced expansions of its Clean Energy Manufacturing Initiative1 in support of the American manufacturing sector and a new initiative to support President Obama’s goal of doubling energy productivity by 2030. By advancing the development of innovative manufacturing technologies, investing in substantial energy efficiency upgrades at production plants across the country, and training American workers for the advanced manufacturing jobs of tomorrow, the Department of Energy is helping make America’s manufacturing sector even stronger in an intensely competitive global market. 

“In part due to a dramatic increase in domestic energy production and the Obama Administration’s policies and support, the U.S. manufacturing sector has seen a resurgence in recent years, adding 700,000 jobs since 2009,” said Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz. “Continued smart investments in advanced manufacturing technologies, and the American workforce today, will strengthen our competitive edge for decades to come.”

Accelerate Energy Productivity 2030

In President Obama’s 2013 State of the Union Address, he issued a call to double energy productivity by 2030 and cut energy waste in half in our homes and businesses over the next 20 years. In support of that goal, the Department today announced a partnership with the Council on Competitiveness and the Alliance to Save Energy to launch Accelerate Energy Productivity 2030. Private sector and state and local leaders can engage in energy productivity dialogues, commit to the goal, and share best practices for capturing the economic benefits of improved energy productivity. Accelerate Energy Productivity 2030 aims to create a national roadmap to grow the US economy while reducing energy costs.

Ernest Moniz, US Secretary of Energy, announced the partnership earlier this week at the Energy Department’s 2014 American Energy and Manufacturing Competitiveness Summit, jointly sponsored by the Council on Competitiveness.

  1. The Clean Energy Manufacturing Initiative includes private sector partnerships, new funding from the Department of Energy, and enhanced analysis of the clean energy manufacturing supply chain that is designed to guide the Department’s future funding decisions.
