On October 14, DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) announced its intent to issue a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) that will drive innovation leading to economy-wide decarbonization, increased sustainability, and economic competitiveness. CABLE competitors should specifically take note of the topic called, “Next Generation Materials and Manufacturing.” This topic will focus on research, development, and deployment of novel materials with improved properties such as high pressure, high-temperature performance, and/or enhanced conductivity. Specific areas of interest include increased conductivity materials, harsh environment materials, and AI/machine learning for aerostructures. For more information about the notice of intent, visit DOE’s webpage on the topic.
