US DOE’s Advanced Manufacturing Office (US DOE/AMO)

US DOE’s Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) – formerly known as Industrial Technologies Program (ITP) – is the successor of the Technology Roadmap Program, which aims to increase energy efficiency in the industrial sector of the United States. AMO helps the research, development and deployment of innovative technologies that companies may use to increase their energy efficiency, decrease environmental emissions and as a result may gain competitive advantage (US DOE/AMO 2011). 

AMO has published numerous sector-specific and cross-cutting reports for energy efficiency relevant, among others, for iron and steel, cement and pulp and paper  the cement industries. In 2003, AMO published a report on energy and emissions reduction opportunities for the cement industry (US DOE/ITP 2003). Also, AMO has published extensive and highly valuable materials (guidebooks and tools) on energy efficiency in cross-cutting industrial energy systems such as process heating, steam, and motor systems, etc. (US DOE/AMO 2011).

In 2009, the AMO convened at the Cement Energy and CO2 Reduction Opportunities workshop. The purpose of this collaborative two-day workshop was to help develop a national perspective to identify the opportunities, barriers, and pathways to significantly increase energy efficiencies and reduce CO2 emissions from the cement production process. Further information about this workshop is available here.
