The U.S. Department of Energy has announced funding for a variety of programs this month under President Biden’s Investing in America Agenda.

The department stated that $3.5 billion is available under the Infrastructure Law “to boost domestic production of advanced batteries and battery materials nationwide.“

During National Apprenticeship Week, the department announced a combined $40.8 million for training and assessment centers “to expand training opportunities for in-demand, high-quality jobs while identifying opportunities for organizations to save energy, improve productivity, and reduce waste.“

The department selected nine projects to receive a total of $169 million to accelerate electric heat pump manufacturing at 15 sites across the country. Officials also announced $42 million for 15 projects across 11 states to improve the reliability, resiliency, and flexibility of the domestic power grid through the development of next-generation semiconductor technologies.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For discernment for U.S. energy officials as they support projects involving electricity and the U.S. power grid.
  • For Secretary Granholm to seek God’s direction as she oversees the Energy Department.
  • For the president and his administration as they determine funding for energy programs.
