The Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Technologies Office (AMMTO) researches, develops, and demonstrates next-generation materials and manufacturing technologies needed to increase U.S. industrial competitiveness and drive economy-wide decarbonization.
AMMTO supports the national plan to revitalize American manufacturing, secure critical supply chains, and develop diverse innovation ecosystems leading to new manufacturing jobs and increased economic strength of the nation.
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
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."
