Congratulations to DexMat, TS Conductor, and the University of Colorado Boulder, as well as Ames National Laboratory, Argonne National Laboratory, and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory! All six just earned awardsthrough the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Manufacturing and Materials Technology Office’s Multi-Topic funding opportunity announcement.
The program chose the six teams affiliated with the Conductivity-enhanced materials for Affordable, Breakthrough Leapfrog Electric and thermal applications (CABLE) Conductor Manufacturing Prize, plus an additional 16 projects, for their potential to help combat the climate crisis, secure U.S. domestic supply chains, and position the country as a leader in the global clean energy economy. The CABLE Conductor Manufacturing Prize teams will pursue projectsunder Topic 1, Next Generation Materials and Manufacturing. This work is critical to rapidly deploy more advanced conductors, which are needed to meet the country’s goal to build a net-zero-carbon power system by 2035.
Although DexMat won Stage 1 but not Stage 2 of the CABLE Conductor Manufacturing Prize (TS Conductor and the University of Colorado Boulder were recent Stage 2 winners), the company also recently won a Voucher Service Provider award. The award enables the team to partner with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory so they can continue to tackle pressing materials and manufacturing challenges and help move the nation toward a clean energy future.
