DOE and CESMII Announce Smart Manufacturing Innovation Centers RFP and Selects 14 Innovation Projects
Washington, D.C.: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced a new request for proposals (RFP) and $4 million in selections for projects that will accelerate the adoption of Smart Manufacturing practices. These initiatives support the Biden Administration’s efforts to spur innovation, create a highly skilled Smart Manufacturing workforce, and reduce the carbon footprint of the manufacturing sector.
Smart Manufacturing describes a variety of measures involving digitization, automation, and artificial intelligence—all of which improve the efficiency, productivity, and environmental sustainability of the manufacturing sector. DOE’s Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CESMII), which supports advances in smart sensors and digital process controls, will manage these projects.
“Smart Manufacturing will make the American manufacturing sector more productive, more energy-efficient, and more competitive on a global scale,” said Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Kelly Speakes-Backman. “DOE’s investments in Smart Manufacturing will accelerate the adoption of these technologies and processes, helping companies to create new, integrated systems and support their competitiveness around the world.”
