7 Manufacturers Committing to Reducing Carbon Emissions

May 11, 2016
Through its Technologists in Residence program, the Department of Energy supports seven major manufacturing companies in developing energy-saving technologies, products, and manufacturing processes.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced its second round of funding for the Technologist in Residence (TIR) Program within the Clean Energy Manufacturing Initiative (CEMI).

The TIR program pairs senior technologists from national labs with technologists in private, multimillion-dollar manufacturing. Together, they research and develop clean-energy technologies that save energy, increase productivity, and reduce the carbon footprint of mainstream manufacturing in several industries.

The seven partnerships originated from the pilot program launched in September 2015. The DOE invested $400,000 per team to be used over the course of two years, an investment matched by its partner companies. This gallery gives us a glimpse of what lies ahead with each of these partnerships.
