The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Undersecretary for Science and Energy and the Office of Policy have issued a request for information (RFI) on energy sector supply chains. The RFI seeks input from all stakeholders involved directly and indirectly in the supply chains of energy, energy systems and technologies, and energy efficiency technologies from raw materials, processed materials, subcomponents, final products, to end-of-life material recovery and recycling—including but not limited to U.S. industry, researchers, academia, local governments, and civil society.

This stakeholder input will inform the Department's efforts to build an energy sector industrial base that is diverse, resilient, and competitive while meeting economic, national security, and climate objectives and developing a world-class American manufacturing base and workforce.
