  • Identify timely, high-impact, foundational clean energy technologies with the potential to transform energy use and accelerate their introduction into the US economy

    • Invest in competitively-selected, cost-shared Projectsto support innovative manufacturing processesand next-generation materials manufacturing for clean energy and energy efficiency industry

      • Innovative Manufacturing Initiative: 672 small (<500 employees) companies of 859 total industry-led teams

  • Establish Manufacturing Demonstration (User) Facilities to reduce barriers to exploration of new ideas

  • Engage with industry and other stakeholders to create a robust and scalable Technology Deployment program for existing technologies

    • Measurement and Verification

    • Information Sharing

    • Training

  • Virtual, model-driven library: e.g. foundries, chemicals

    Advanced Manufacturing Technologies: e.g. Additive Manufacturing

    Legacy Manufacturing Technologies: e.g. melding, joining, welding

    Design Capabilities

    Characterization e.g. testing and validation, prognosis, shared quality control technologies

    Manufacturing Demonstration Facilities (MDFs)

    Two pathways through the MDF

    INPUT: New Processes, techniques, tools, capabilities and other production enabling innovations and technologies

    • OUTPUT: Business case for manufacturing new materials or products:

    • Production rate

    • Processes established

    • Partners Identified

    • Risks identified

    • Cost estimates based on production data

    • The case for commercialization


    Innovations and ideas for the creating new materials or products

    Manufacturing Demonstration Facility

    Process control / metrology

    OUTPUT: Equipment sales, control systems, robotics, services and other production enabling products

    Innovative material or product to market

    Existing Supply Chains

    Program goal is to reduce the cost of carbon fiber composites by improved manufacturing techniques such as MAP, which if scaled successfully could reduce carbonization cost by about half compared to conventional methodology.

    Program goal is to accelerate the manufacturing capability of a multitude of AM technologies utilizing various materials from metals to polymers to composites.

    MDF Example: Oak Ridge National Laboratory

    Additive Manufacturing

    Carbon Fiber

    Exit end of Microwave Assisted Plasma (MAP) process, jointly developed by ORNL and Dow

    POM laser processing AM equipment

    Arcam electron beam processing AM equipment

    Closing Remarks

    We are Partners.

    How can work together to help businesses

    and entrepreneurs succeed?
