Manufacturing Initiative

Carbon Fiber reinforced 3D Printed Shelby Cobra

Oak Ridge National Laboratory is supporting the DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Clean Energy Manufacturing Initiative focusing on American competitiveness in clean energy manufacturing.

The DOE Initiative has two primary objectives—increase US competitiveness in the production of clean energy products (e.g., wind turbines, solar panels, energy efficient appliances, light bulbs, vehicles and automotive components) and across the board by increasing energy productivity through energy efficiency, combined heat and power, and taking advantage of low-cost domestic energy sources.

Unique federal assets at ORNL like cutting edge equipment, facility infrastructure, and decades of experience in advanced materials and manufacturing, coupled with private investments, and support from regional resources for workforce development and training create a shared technical infrastructure for clean energy manufacturing capabilities for the U.S. economy.
