This activity area supports the research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) of technologies that dramatically reduce energy use and emissions from energy-intensive industries. Technology investment strategies to reduce emissions in energy-intensive and emissions-intensive industrial subsectors will be based on analysis and stakeholder engagement to inform priorities. Industrial subsectors of focus initially include:
Additional analyses will be carried out to determine how decarbonization strategies can be deployed in industrial subsectors beyond the initial plan.
