Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Act Sponsored Funding Opportunities

For the next five years, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) will stand up 60 new DOE programs, including 16 demonstration and 32 deployment programs, and expands funding for 12 existing Research, Development, Demonstration, and Deployment (RDD&D) programs.

The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) of 2022 makes the single largest investment in climate and energy in American history, enabling America to tackle the climate crisis, advancing environmental justice, securing America’s position as a world leader in domestic clean energy manufacturing, and putting the United States on a pathway to achieving the Biden Administration’s climate goals, including a net-zero economy by 2050.

DOE looks forward to being a partner for states, communities, and industry as we move the U.S. economy towards a clean energy, lower carbon emissions future by strengthening the nation’s outdated energy infrastructure.
