Throughout 2020, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) and our partners worked to enhance energy and material efficiency for manufacturers. From early-stage research and development (R&D) to field validation and verification efforts, AMO focused on technologies that meet national needs and support U.S. manufacturing competitiveness.

2020 was also a year filled with collaboration. AMO played an important role in shaping DOE’s cross-cutting initiatives, working closely with offices across the Department to harness our collective capabilities to encourage future U.S. leadership and create thriving ecosystems for manufacturing innovation.

There were lot of great examples of technology and innovation advances that AMO and our public-private partners made this year in the manufacturing industry and beyond. We spotlighted a few standout achievements below that you may remember.
