  • ARPA-E FOA: INNOVATIVE DEVELOPMENT IN ENERGY-RELATED APPLIED SCIENCE (IDEAS)

    Posted: August 7, 2015 - 10:06 / FOA-RFI-RFP

    This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is intended to provide rapid support to revolutionary applied energy research (Studies) that may lead to new ARPA-E programs to develop transformational and disruptive energy technologies. Studies are defined as single-phase efforts of durations less than 12 months and cost less than $500,000. Awards will be issued through Grants. The broad objective of this FOA is to identify disruptive concepts in energy-related technologies that challenge the status quo and represent a leap beyond today’s technology. An innovative concept alone is not enough; the idea must also have the potential to be impactful—meaning that, if successful, it represents a fundamentally new paradigm in energy technology with the potential to make a significant impact on ARPA-E’s Mission Areas (see Section I.A). Concepts of particular interest have the potential to achieve percentage-level reductions in U.S. energy consumption, energy-relatThis Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is intended to provide rapid support to revolutionary applied energy research (Studies) that may lead to new ARPA-E programs to develop transformational and disruptive energy technologies.

  • Department of Energy Funding Opportunity: Generating Realistic Information for Development of Distribution and Transmission Algorithms (GRID DATA)

    Posted: June 15, 2015 - 04:42 / DOE / FOA-RFI-RFP

    ARPA-E seeks to fund innovative ideas for the creation of large-scale, realistic power system models (transmission, distribution, and hybrid models that include both transmission and distribution), validated by real data, and relevant for the testing and evaluation of emerging power system optimization algorithms. The models created under this program must be releasable to the public with no restrictions. Power system network models (section D.1) will be accompanied by a large number of detailed scenarios that represent specific operating points. These scenarios should correspond to the characteristics of the grid today as well as future (i.e. scenarios that reflect different load characteristics or with substantial renewable generation). ARPA-E also seeks to fund the creation of a public power system model repository (section D.2). It is intended that the repository will become a long-term community resource existing well past ARPA-E’s initial investment. The models and repository created in this program may be used as the basis for an ARPA-E OPF algorithm competition.

  • TEP Issues Request for Proposals to Build Energy Storage Facility

    Posted: April 24, 2015 - 02:20 / RFP / FOA-RFI-RFP

    Tucson Electric Power (TEP) is seeking bids for the design and construction of a utility-scale energy storage system that would be operational by the end of 2016. With a request for proposals (RFP) issued today, TEP is seeking a project partner to build and own a 10 megawatt (MW) storage facility under a 10-year agreement. Such systems can be used to store energy generated by renewable resources for later use, making them increasingly important for managing the local electric system without compromising reliability.

  • NYSERDA Announces Release of Request for Proposals

    Posted: February 18, 2015 - 10:30 / FOA-RFI-RFP

    In keeping with the “Notice Encouraging the Development of Demonstration Project Proposals” issued by the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) on December 12, 2014 (December 12 Notice), NYSERDA seeks proposals from qualified organizations interested in providing assistance and working with utilities and other interested parties to identify business opportunities that may develop into Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) demonstration projects.

  • DE-FOA-0001289: Network Optimized Distributed Energy Systems (NODES) ARPA-E Funding Opportunity

    Posted: February 9, 2015 - 10:30 / FOA-RFI-RFP

    ARPA-E announces it is making up to $30 million in funding available for its newest program, Network Optimized Distributed Energy Systems (NODES). The program will develop innovative and disruptive technologies to enable real-time management of transmission and distribution networks on the electric grid. NODES will leverage advances in computing and data communications in the development of software for large-scale active load control and system-wide coordination of Distributed Energy Resources (DERS). This type of net-load control can provide low-cost ancillary services to the electric grid at different time-scales, thereby improving grid operational reliability, efficiency, and resiliency and allowing significantly higher penetration of renewables.

  • Millennium Challenge Corporation Funding Opportunity MCC-15-RFI-0001: Request for Information: Off-grid Clean Energy Solutions for Benin

    Posted: February 9, 2015 - 05:00 / FOA-RFI-RFP

    The Government of the United States, through the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), is developing a $300 million compact with the Government of Benin (GOB) focused on Benin’s electrical power sector. The compact is expected to be signed in August 2015. In order to inform the preparation of the compact, MCC and its partner GOB agency, the Unité de Coordination de la Formulation du 2eme Programme et Suivi des Reformes de MCA-Benin (UCF) invite interested companies and organizations from around the world to submit information regarding potential projects that would expand access to renewable off-grid electrical power in Benin. MCC and UCF will use the information to determine whether to design a matching grant facility to provide matching funding to a project sponsor towards the overall cost of a clean energy project in Benin. Final project selection decisions would be determined at a later date through a separate competitive grant application process to be launched following the signing of a proposed MCC compact with Benin. Signing of the compact is subject to successful negotiation by the GoB and MCC, as well as MCC Board approval of a compact.

  • DE-FOA-0001108: Sustainable and Holistic Integration of Energy Storage and Solar PV (SHINES)

    Posted: January 27, 2015 - 12:00 / FOA-RFI-RFP

    The purpose of modification 000001 is to extend the Submission Deadline for Full Applications from March 19, 2015 to March 26, 2015 5:00pm (ET). All other parts of the Funding Opportunity Announcement remain unchanged. The SunShot Initiative (SunShot) is a national collaborative effort to make solar energy cost-competitive with other forms of electricity by the end of the decade. The installed cost of solar photovoltaics (PV) has reduced significantly in recent years, spurring significant and accelerating deployment of PV systems. With the anticipated proliferation of solar power at the centralized and distributed scales, the variability and uncertainty of the solar resource poses challenges for reliably integrating photovoltaics (PV) with electric power systems, both at the distribution and bulk system levels. The goal of the Department of Energy, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, SHINES Funding Opportunity is to enable the development and demonstration of integrated, scalable, and cost-effective technologies for solar that incorporates energy storage and works seamlessly to meet both consumer needs and the needs of the electricity grid.
