DOE Launches Competition To Spur Onshore Manufacturing
February 07, 2018 / U.S. Department of Energy
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced the opening of the American Inventions Made Onshore (AIM Onshore) prize competition and the availability of DOE’s Build4Scale manufacturing training - both part of a DOE initiative to close the gap between American innovators who develop new energy technologies and domestic manufacturers who produce them.
American scientists and engineers invent transformative energy technologies every day, but these innovators often do not have manufacturing expertise - or know where to find it. Through AIM Onshore, selected intermediary organizations - incubators, accelerators, universities, and others - will teach manufacturing fundamentals to energy technology innovators, and help them forge partnerships with domestic manufacturers.
“Onshore manufacturing of American energy technologies plays an important role in promoting U.S. economic growth and competitiveness,” said U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry. “The AIM ...
