Description (excerpt):

This report summarizes the progress made by the Department of Energy (DOE) in building and securing supply chains to support the American energy sector industrial base. The energy sector industrial base is all the labor, capital, and public and private entities required to produce energy products. An energy product is any system, component, or consumable commodity used to generate, store, transport, transform, or conserve energy. The report covers progress made since the release of “America’s Strategy to Secure the Supply Chain for a Robust Clean Energy Transition” in February 24, 2022. Equipped with broad policy tools such as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), Chips and Science Act (CHIPS), and the invocation of the Defense Production Act (DPA) — and complementary investments in RD&D through regular appropriations — DOE is positioned to tackle supply chain challenges and seize the clean energy transition opportunities.

Leveraging funding provisions from BIL, IRA, CHIPS, and DPA authorities, DOE is committed to building a resilient supply chain to ensure America meets its economic and climate goals equitably.
