The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) accomplishes its goals by investing in applied research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) in crosscutting, platform technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and promote the development and growth of advanced manufacturing in multiple emerging energy fields. AMO actively partners with industry to lower barriers that would otherwise limit the subsequent demonstration, adoption, and use of the new knowledge and practices gained through RD&D.

This ensures that new technologies invented in the U.S. are manufactured in the U.S. as well, all in support of the administration priority to deliver an equitable, clean energy future for all Americans.

What We Do

  • Industrial efficiency and decarbonization
    • The industrial efficiency and decarbonization mission space supports innovation in technologies and practices to enable the industrial sector to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
  • Advanced materials and manufacturing technologies
    • The advanced materials and manufacturing technologies mission space develops and demonstrates advanced materials and manufacturing technologies to increase domestic competitiveness and build a clean, decarbonized economy. This includes work on clean energy technology manufacturing and sustainable and secure supply chains.

How We Do It

  • R&D Projects
    • AMO offers Research, Development, and Demonstration (RD&D) funding through Lab Calls, Prizes, and Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) to promote the decarbonization of industrial manufacturing and advance energy-related materials and manufacturing technologies. 
  • R&D Consortia
    • AMO's consortia include institutes, hubs, and user facilities that further R&D goals in a defined technology focus area.
  • Workforce Development & Technical Assistance
    • The Technical Assistance and Workforce Development program area focuses on making knowledge and transformational tools accessible across manufacturing organizations and developing the future manufacturing workforce. Our goal is to train American workers in these new areas, especially in disadvantaged communities with high emissions, to create a skilled and inclusive manufacturing workforce.
  • Cross-Office Programs
    • AMO collaborates with other DOE offices to support emerging industrial decarbonization and advanced manufacturing technologies.
