The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Industrial Technology Validation (ITV) pilot is accepting applications on a rolling basis until June 30, 2022. The ITV pilot will objectively assess the performance of emerging decarbonization technologies in industrial environments with a team of DOE National Lab experts. These efforts support and accelerate the deployment of high-impact technologies that will advance decarbonization of the industrial sector.
The ITV pilot is open to technology developers and/or industrial host sites interested in evaluating innovative pre- or early-commercial technologies to decarbonize industry, wastewater treatment, agriculture, clean rooms, or mining.
The ITV Phase 2 Request for Proposals seeks technologies that can cost-effectively advance decarbonization of American industry and meet the following criteria:
- Advances industrial decarbonization by reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Technologies that reduce water use, wastewater effluent, and waste creation will also be considered.
- Qualifies as a pre- or early-commercial technology or a commercial technology in a new use case
- Has broad deployment applicability, but not yet widely used or accepted
Selected technology developers will have the opportunity to gain industry exposure by deploying their technologies in a real-world industrial environment. Performance will be verified by a full-scale measurement and verification (M&V) process led by DOE National Lab experts. A publicly available M&V report will be produced for each validation that can help developers tap into new and existing markets.
Selected host sites can gain a competitive edge by becoming an early adopter of emerging technology and optimizing plant performance and production targets. The expert-led field testing will reduce the risks associated with incorporating new technologies. Host sites will work towards their own decarbonization goals while also creating new opportunities for industry to join in the broader integration of GHG-, energy-, water-, and waste-reducing technologies in the industrial space.
Join us for an upcoming webinar on April 20, 2022 at 1:00PM ET to learn more about Phase 2 of the ITV Pilot and have your questions answered. More information about the pilot can also be found on the ITV website, including the ITV Phase 2 RFP, which includes information on the application process and instructions for submitting your proposal.
