Industrial Technology Validation Pilot
The U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Manufacturing Office is launching a new Industrial Technology Validation (ITV) pilot to help industry better identify and evaluate innovative technologies by hosting field validation testbeds.
“To achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, we must rapidly scale-up the development and deployment of clean-energy technologies by American manufacturers. By bringing these emerging technologies out of the laboratory and onto the factory floor, DOE’s Industrial Technology Validation program moves us one step closer to commercializing the innovations that will make our clean energy future possible.”
- Kelly Speakes-Backman, Acting Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

Emerging Technology Helps Meet Sustainability Goals
Better Plants partners across the country have set ambitious sustainability goals to reduce energy, water, and waste. Emerging technologies can be integral to achieving these goals, but the risks involved in installing and objectively validating performance in high-stakes industrial environments can often impede adoption.
Objective Evaluation Minimizes Adoption Risk
To overcome the risks inherent in adopting emerging technologies, AMO’s Industrial Technology Validation pilot is partnering with DOE’s National Labs to validate performance in dynamic industrial environments. Results will be shared broadly and help Better Plants partners understand the viability of a solution while mitigating many of the risks associated with being the first to install an emerging technology.

Submit Your Application
Funding for this pilot is limited. Submit your application as early as possible, even if you are not ready to begin the project. Evaluation start dates are flexible and can accommodate your schedule. Please address any questions to: ITV-Support@lbl.gov
For Phase II, technology vendors may apply individually or with a host site. Technologies must be innovative with potential for broad deployment and savings and meet the criteria outlined in the Request for Proposals.
Identify a host site to serve as the technology testbed site (if applying jointly with a host site).
