Background Information

The Clean Energy Transition Partnership (CETPartnership) aims at accelerating the clean energy transition to achieve the goal of climate neutrality by 2050. It is a multilateral and strategic partnership of national and regional research, development and innovation funding programs in EU Member States and Associated Countries, co-funded by the European Commission through Horizon Europe.

The CETPartnership Joint Call 2023 is the second annual co-funded call under the CETPartnership. To cover different topics and research, development and innovation types, the Call is structured into 12 Call Modules, aimed at different energy technologies and/or systems as well as both research and innovation-oriented approaches on different technology readiness levels, complementing and completing each other.

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) committed up to $6 million in funding towards hydrogen and carbon capture, utilization, and storage projects that provide cleaner technological solutions and contribute to significant carbon dioxide reductions by 2030 and the climate neutrality by 2050.


The call is open to U.S. national laboratories and their public or private research partners. The main U.S. partner must be one of the designated DOE national laboratories.

DOE Eligible Call Modules

  • CM2023-04: Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS)
  • CM2023-05: Hydrogen and renewable fuels


DOE has committed up to $6 million in funding ($2M Capture, $2M Transport & Storage; $1M Utilization; $1M Hydrogen).

DOE expects to make between 6-12 awards for up to $1 million each.


An informational webinar was hosted on September 13, 2023 at 4:00 AM ET (10:00 CEST) to discuss this funding opportunity as well as the call stages, structure and topics (call modules), transnational and national eligibility rules.
