The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced $3.25 million for the American-Made Geothermal Manufacturing Prize (Geothermal Prize). A first of its kind for geothermal technology, this prize is designed to spur innovation and address manufacturing challenges fundamental to operating in harsh geothermal environments.
Energy Department Selects Four Projects for High Performance Computing for Manufacturing in Steel and Aluminum Production
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), in partnership with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), announced nearly $1.2 million for four new projects to support American steel and aluminum manufacturers in improving energy efficiency, increasing productivity, and accelerating manufacturing innovation.
Manufacturing accounts for over half of the environmental impact and one-fifth of the annual energy consumption in the U.S. Reducing that energy drain is the goal of ASTM’s E3012-16 international standard. If you can put E3012-16 to work to reduce manufacturing’s footprint, you could be a big winner.
American scientists and engineers invent transformative energy technologies every day, but these innovators often do not have manufacturing expertise – or know where to find it. The U.S.
The National Science and Technology Council, Subcommittee on Advanced Manufacturing (NSTC SAM) is in the process of developing a National Strategic Plan for Advanced Manufacturing to improve Government coordination and provide long-term guidance for Federal programs and activities in support of United States manufacturing competitiveness, including advanced manufacturing research and developmen
Manufacturing USA today released its 2016 Annual Report to Congress. The report describes the program’s work in helping to move discoveries in the nation’s universities and research laboratories to the shop floor here in America.
