by Committee for Review of the Department of Energy's Industrial Technologies, Board on Manufacturing and Engineering Design, Divisi

Decreasing Energy Intensity in Manufacturing Assessing the Strategies and Future Directions of the Industrial Technologies Program Synopsis

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has supported the Industrial Technologies Program (ITP) for more than a decade. This program supports R&D into energy efficiency technologies designed to decrease the energy intensity of the U.S. industrial sector. The focus in on seven energy-intensive industriesa aluminum, chemicals, forest products, glass, metal casting, mining, and steela known as the Industries of the Future (IOF). DOE asked the NRC for a review of this program including an evaluation of the ITP strategic plan, an evaluation of the technical quality of individual subprogram plans, and the prospective value of the multi-year program plan. This report presents the results of that review. It contains an assessment of the ITP strategy, of how effective it is being implemented, and the likelihood of achieving program goals. It also provides conclusions about the quality of the subprograms and recommendations about how to strengthen the subprograms and the overall program.
