Analysis (Risk, Benefit, Portfolio)
Quadrennial Technology Assessment: Industrial Materials and Processes
This assessment was one of 17 assessments spanning all DOE activities and incorporated into the Quadrennial Technology Review.
Market Report for the Industrial Sector
This report provides an overview of trends in industrial-sector energy use. It focuses on some of the largest and most energy-intensive industrial subsectors and several emerging technologies that could transform key segments of industry.
Energy Use and Loss Footprints
The Manufacturing Energy and Carbon Footprints provide a mapping of energy use and carbon emissions from energy supply to end use across the U.S. manufacturing sector and in 15 subsectors.
Linking Transformational Materials and Processing for an Energy-Efficient and Low-Carbon Economy
The Energy Materials Blue Ribbon Panel, representing experts from industry, academia, and government, identifies new materials and processing breakthroughs that could lead to transformational advances in energy efficiency, energy security, and carbon reduction.
Legislative and Executive Guidance
P.L. 110-140, "Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007", 2007
The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA), signed into law on December 19, 2007, set forth an agenda for improving U.S. energy security across the entire economy. While industrial energy efficiency is specifically called out in Title IV, Subtitle D, other EISA provisions also apply to AMO activities.
P.L. 109-58, "Energy Policy Act of 2005", 2005
The Energy Policy Act of 2005 set forth an energy agenda covering a wide range of energy technology research and implementation activities with provisions applicable to AMO activities.
P.L. 102-486, "Energy Policy Act of 1992", 1992
The Energy Policy Act of 1992 established numerous requirements for industrial efficiency, including those listed under Title I, Subtitle D, and several sections under Title XXI.
P.L. 95-91, "U.S. Department of Energy Organization Act", 1977
This legislation consolidated the Federal Energy Administration and the Energy Research and Development Administration to create the Department of Energy and define its mission.

Nanomanufacturing R&D Portfolio Brochure
This brochure describes the 31 R&D projects that AMO supports to accelerate the commercial manufacture and use of nanomaterials for enhanced energy efficiency. These cost-shared projects seek to exploit the unique properties of nanomaterials to improve the functionality of industrial processes and products.
Grand Challenge Portfolio
Under the Recovery Act, AMO provided cost-shared funding for early-stage, low-cost, "concept definition studies" of 47 promising innovations for next-generation manufacturing, energy-intensive processes, advanced materials, and greenhouse gas emissions reduction. The brochure provides information on each of these projects.
Powering Progress in Combined Heat and Power (CHP)
The Powering Progress in Combined Heat and Power (CHP) brochure provides information about the opportunities and benefits of CHP technologies and AMO's role in their development and delivery
Energy Intensive Processes R&D Portfolio Brochure
AMO is developing advanced technologies that cut energy use and carbon emissions in some of the most energy-intensive processes within U.S. manufacturing. The brochure describes the AMO R&D projects that address these challenges.
