The U.S. Department of Energy is calling on manufacturers that are interested in creating new facilities or expanding existing heat pump production capacity.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced a US$250 million funding opportunity to accelerate electric heat pump manufacturing in America.
This is the first funding opportunity announcement stemming from DOE’s new authorization, invoked by President Biden last summer, to use the Defense Production Act (DPA) to increase domestic production of five key clean energy technologies, including electric heat pumps.
DOE is extending applications to manufacturers that are interested in creating new facilities or expanding existing production capacity to develop more electric heat pump systems, components, and materials in the U.S.
