Industrial Technology Validation Program

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Industrial Efficiency & Decarbonization Office (IEDO) has launched phase two of the Industrial Technology Validation program. This phase is open to all industrial sites that want to team with technology vendors to evaluate innovative manufacturing technologies in their plants. Technology vendors are also invited to apply individually.


Emerging Technology Helps Meet Sustainability Goals

Industrial companies across the country are prioritizing ambitious sustainability goals to reduce energy, GHG, 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

Validate innovative energy-, GHG-, water-, and waste-reducing technologies to decarbonize industry with support from  DOE’s National Labs. Results will be shared broadly and help the industrial sector understand the viability of a solution while mitigating many of the risks associated with being the first to install an emerging technology.

Phase II of the program is no longer accepting applications.


Why Participate?

  • Engage in a full-scale program with M&V managed by National Lab experts
  • Receive independent insights regarding technology suitability for industrial processes
  • Inform public- and private-sector investment decisions through publicly available M&V findings
  • Increase market acceptance of emerging technologies by validating real-world performance





Submit Your Application

The pilot phases are no longer accepting applications but check here for updates on future solicitations. 


Program Phases and Timing

Phase II will allow technology vendors the opportunity to apply either in conjunction with an industrial site or apply independently to validate their emerging technology at a future designated partner or industrial site. Phases II awardees have been announced.
