The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations (OCED) is requesting public input to help inform the Department’s development of demand-side support measures for clean energy technologies. Demand-side support measures include, but are not limited to, advanced market commitments, direct procurement, and guaranteed offtake. 

As a potential tool to support DOE’s mission by providing a predictable commercial market for clean energy technologies, these measures have accelerated commercial scale-up of technologies in energy and other industries, both in the United States and abroad. 

Specifically, DOE is looking for public input on the following:  

  • Cases where demand-side support measures would be useful in scaling up clean energy technologies; and  
  • Avenues for DOE to implement demand-side support measures, if it elects to do so. 

Deadline to provide input is March 1 at 5 p.m., ET, and should be submitted via email. Read the full request on OCED exchange here.
