AMMTO’s Vision Statement: A globally competitive U.S. manufacturing sector that accelerates the adoption of innovative materials and manufacturing technologies in support of a clean, decarbonized economy.
AMMTO’s Mission Statement: We inspire people and drive innovation to transform materials and manufacturing for America's energy future.
AMMTO provides planning, management, and direction necessary for a balanced program of research, development, demonstration, technical assistance, and workforce development to support domestic manufacturing that is critical to achieving a clean, decarbonized economy.
AMMTO resides in the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy within DOE’s Under Secretary for Science and Innovation. AMMTO reports to the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency.
What we do
AMMTO focuses on accelerating foundational, cross-cutting clean energy materials and manufacturing process technologies across the Department’s mission areas that increase the competitiveness of a secure, domestic supply chain.
AMMTO focuses on activities that are intended to ensure secure and sustainable supply chains for the clean economy.
AMMTO focuses on research, development, and demonstration for innovative manufacturing that advance the clean energy economy, such as energy storage systems and wide bandgap power semiconductors.
How We Do It
AMMTO funds research, development, & demonstration (RD&D) projects across several subprograms that drive economy-wide decarbonization. A list of AMMTO-funded projects can be found in the Project Database
Funding opportunity announcements (FOA) are developed through a collaborative process to achieve the office's goals. Adhering to an open, highly competitive solicitation process, these funding opportunities encourage collaborative partnerships among industries; universities; national laboratories; federal, state, and local governments; and nongovernment organizations.
FOA applications undergo a rigorous peer review process before projects are selected for negotiation to receive DOE funding. Upon the successful completion of this negotiation process (including collaboration on a statement of project objectives, milestones, and budgets) projects can begin.
In addition to FOAs, AMMTO fosters regional and topic-based innovation ecosystems through its network of Manufacturing USA institutes, user facilities, and innovation hubs, collectively referred to as "consortia."
