Department of Energy Announces $23M to Fund Onsite Energy Technical Assistance Partnerships to Drive Industrial Decarbonization

By District Energy posted 02-09-2023 12:35


The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Industrial Efficiency and Decarbonization Office (IEDO) announced a $23 million funding opportunity that will establish a regional network of Technical Assistance Partnerships (TAPs) to help industrial facilities and other large energy users increase the adoption of onsite energy technologies. Integrating clean energy technologies directly in buildings and plants will play a significant role in achieving the nation's climate goals and reaching a net-zero economy by 2050. The Onsite Energy TAPs will accelerate the integration and deployment of clean energy technologies to drive U.S. industrial decarbonization, productivity, and competitiveness.
