DOE Funds Efficiency Projects

GOLDEN, Colo. — To improve energy efficiency in buildings and in manufacturing, the Department of Energy (DOE) announced awards totaling $4.4 million to advance energy efficient, environmentally clean production and building technologies.

“Twenty-five percent of the energy used to heat and cool buildings goes right out the window,” said Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham. “The innovative technologies receiving funding today will improve U.S. industrial competitiveness while reducing energy use, helping to make our nation more secure.”

The DOE selected 19 organizations out of 202 proposals to receive funding as part of two DOE programs: Inventions and Innovation (I&I) and the National Industrial Competitiveness through Energy, Environment and Economics Initiative (NICE3).

One of the chosen projects is the Force Modulator, a durable sheet metal technology for the steel industry that controls press forces during part forming.
