Advanced Energy Manufacturing and Recycling Grant Program Overview and Round 1 Recap – February 22, 2024 at 1:00 pm | (UTC-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada), Registration link: https://doe.webex.com/weblink/register/r46807b1f1984be7d00e91ddd46f19d4f

 

The Advanced Energy Manufacturing and Recycling Grant Program is designed to provide grants to small- and medium-sized manufacturers to enable them to build new or retrofit existing manufacturing and industrial facilities to produce or recycle advanced energy products in communities where coal mines or coal power plants have closed.

DOE announced $275 million for seven projects to strengthen clean energy supply chains and accelerate domestic clean energy manufacturing in seven states across the nation. Each project positions the U.S. to enhance its global competitiveness and national security by building domestic supply chains for existing and emerging technologies, built with American labor and materials. Learn more about the seven projects selected for award negotiations here.

Readiness Technical Assistance Program Launched - Small- and medium-sized manufacturing firms (SMMs) that are interested in the program but are not quite ready for the initial funding round are encouraged to apply for the competitive Readiness Technical Assistance Program, which is being administered by NREL in partnership with DOE's Office of Manufacturing and Energy Supply Chains. Applications are due by May 26, 2023.

More Information

  • MESC encourages applicants and their community partners to invest additional resources into developing a resilient workforce. The U.S. EDA's (the U.S. Economic Development Administration) Distressed Area Recompete Pilot Program has resources that can help.
    • Distressed Area Recompete Pilot Program will allocate $200 million in persistently distressed communities to create and connect people to good jobs. Applications for Phase 1 of the Recompete Pilot Program will close on October 5, 2023, so communities involved with Section 40209 that may be interested in funding should apply as soon as possible.
