Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

Funding Number: DE-FOA-0000977

Summary:

Through this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) The Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) of EERE seeks to establish a Clean Energy Manufacturing Innovation Institute for Composites Materials and Structures that will support U.S. prosperity and security; and contribute to the creation of the pilot National Network for Manufacturing Innovation. The vision for the Institute is to revitalize American manufacturing and support domestic manufacturing competitiveness. The technical topic area for this Institute is low cost, energy efficient manufacturing of fiber reinforced polymer composites. The Institute will target continuous or discontinuous, primarily carbon and glass fiber systems, with thermoset or thermoplastic resin materials. These types of composites are foundational technologies that are broadly applicable and pervasive in multiple industries and markets with potentially transformational technical and economic impact.
