DOE said Friday the omnibus allocates a total of $17.98 billion for science research, energy efficiency and renewable energy, environmental management, nuclear and fossil energy and  Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy programs.

The authorized department budget sets aside $500 million to fund exascale computing projects and another $100 million to support infrastructure cybersecurity efforts.

The National Nuclear Security Administration will receive a funding increase, DOE added.

The bill includes a provision to block sale, barter or transfer of 600 metric tons of uranium from the department’s Portsmouth, Ohio site.
