The Industrial Technology Innovation Advisory Committee (Committee) was established on April 20, 2022, pursuant to the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007 as amended by Pub. Law 116-260, and in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), as amended, 5 U.S.C. §10.

The Committee is established to advise the Secretary of Energy (Secretary) with respect to the Industrial Emissions Reductions Technology Development Program (the program) by identifying and evaluating any technologies being developed by the private sector relating to the focus areas described in section 454(c) of the EISA; identifying technology gaps in the private sector or other Federal agencies in those focus areas, and making recommendations on how to address those gaps; surveying and analyzing factors that prevent the adoption of emissions reduction technologies by the private sector; and recommending technology screening criteria for technology developed under the program to encourage adoption of the technology by the private sector.

A public meeting of ITIAC will be held in Washington, D.C., on March 21–22, 2024. See Meetings for latest details on how to participate. 

The Committee shall also develop a strategic plan on how to achieve the program’s goals and, in consultation with the Secretary and the Director of the Office of Science Technology and Policy (Director) propose missions and goals for the program consistent with the purposes of the program described in section 454(b)(1) of the EISA.

Announcements for upcoming meetings will be posted on this web page.

Candidate Identification Process

The Membership Balance Plan guides the approach for the selection of Committee members.

The Designated Federal Officer (DFO) will identify candidates for appointment to the Committee by obtaining nominations from within DOE and from external regulatory and stakeholder organizations on an annual basis as needed to fill membership vacancies and obtain balance in points of view.

Additionally, open calls for candidates may be published on the ITIAC website and in the Federal Register. A short list of the best qualified candidates with the technical expertise and relevant points of view will be developed to maintain balance and fulfill the Committee’s mission, in coordination with the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) management. The resulting top candidates are contacted for interest and availability and nominated for appointment to the Committee. The candidate list will be evaluated by the Assistant Secretary for EERE, the Office of General Counsel, the Under Secretary for Science and Innovation and the Committee Management Officer.

Letters of invitation to serve are extended by the Secretary of Energy. If any vacancies occur during the life of the Committee, DOE may review the initial candidate list, identify the best qualified candidates to replace the missing point of view, and initiate the review process as described above, or begin a new candidate identification process. Committee members will be appointed for a two-year term, and may be reappointed for up to two successive terms. Appointments may be made in a manner that allows the terms of the members serving at any time to expire at spaced intervals to ensure continuity in the functioning of the Committee. The Secretary, or designee, will consult with the Director, or designee, as part of the candidate identification and membership process.

How to Submit a Nomination

Nominations may be submitted to at any time, even outside of open calls for candidates, and considered if future vacancies arise. Submissions should include the nominee's name, resume, biography, and any letters of support. Members must be able to actively participate in the tasks of the Committee including, but not limited to, attending, and participating in in-person meetings, reviewing materials, and regularly participating in conference calls, working groups, and formal subcommittees.

Individuals may nominate themselves or other individuals, and professional associations and organizations may nominate one or more qualified persons for consideration. Nominations shall state that the nominee is willing to serve as a member and carry out the duties of the Committee. A nomination package should include the following information for each nominee: A letter of nomination (1) stating the name, affiliation, position title, and contact information for the nominee; (2) the basis for the nomination ( i.e., what specific attributes recommend him/her for service in this capacity), and (3) the nominee's field(s) of experience within the focus areas listed in section 454(c) of the EISA, as codified at 42 U.S.C. 17113(c), and (4) the name, return address, email address, and daytime telephone number at which the nominator can be contacted. A nomination package should provide an adequate description of the nominee's qualifications, including information that will enable DOE to make an informed decision regarding meeting the membership requirements and objectives.

DOE expressly values diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility, and encourages nominations of appropriately qualified candidates from diverse backgrounds.
