$39 Million Announced for Clean Energy Supply Chain

Energy secretary says the funding will expand commercially available domestic metals.

The Department of Energy (DOE) recently invested $39 million into commercial development for clean energy production. Many clean energy products, including electric vehicle batteries, solar panels, and wind turbines, require readily available supplies of copper, nickel, lithium, and other materials. Sixteen projects across 12 states have been tasked with developing commercially scalable processes to increase the domestic supply of those materials.

“A reliable, sustainable domestic supply chain of critical materials that power longer-lasting batteries and other next-generation energy technologies is crucial to reaching our clean energy future,” said Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm. “With these investments, DOE is helping to reinvigorate American manufacturing to reduce our overreliance on adversarial nations and position the nation as a global leader of research and innovation.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Granholm to seek the Lord’s direction as she oversees funding domestic mineral development.
  • For officials in the Energy Department as they pursue clean energy goals.
  • For the president and his administration as they strategize energy and supply chain solutions.
