Advanced Components for 65% Combined-Cycle Efficiency, SCO2 Power Cycles and Advanced M... - 0 views

  •  
    This FOA is soliciting applications to develop turbine based technology applicable to fossil fuels including coal derived synthesis gas, coal derived hydrogen and natural gas. The turbine based machinery and turbine based subsystems developed through this FOA will have direct application to coal gasification processes where coal derived synthesis gas or hydrogen are produced. Additionally, because the modifications required for a turbine based heat engine to accept coal syngas or natural gas are small and manageable, and the market for natural gas applications is robust, natural gas will be considered the developmental fuel in this FOA. This approach to developmental fuel use will facilitate technology readiness level maturation at an accelerated pace leading to quicker commercial deployment and will consequently result in technology that is ready sooner for coal derived synthesis gas or hydrogen. Applications are sought in three areas of interest that include 1. Advanced Combustion Turbines for Combined Cycle Applications, 2. Development of an Oxy-fuel Combustion Turbine with CO2 Dilution for Supercritical Carbon Dioxide Based Power Cycles, and 3. Modular Turbine-based Hybrid Heat Engines for Fossil Energy Applications.

Collaborative Research in Magnetic Fusion Energy Sciences on Long-Pulse International S... - 0 views

  •  
    The Fusion Energy Sciences (FES) of the Office of Science (SC), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), herby announces its interest in receiving applications to carry out experimental research in magnetic fusion energy sciences on long-pulse overseas stellarator facilities, namely Wendelstein 7-X (Germany) and the Large Helical Device (LHD - Japan). The research should be related to the planning, execution, and analysis of experiments concerning the topical areas described below. The FES Burning Plasma Science: Long Pulse portfolio supports U.S. researchers who work in collaboration with foreign scientists to explore critical science and technology issues at the frontiers of magnetic fusion research. These collaborations take advantage of the unique capabilities of the most advanced overseas research facilities.

Generation 3 Concentrating Solar Power Systems - 0 views

  •  
    The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Solar Energy Technology Office (SETO) is seeking applications under this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to fund applied research and development to enable the reduction of the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) generated by concentrating solar power (CSP) to 6 ¢/kWh-electric or less, without subsidies. This FOA intends to develop integrated thermal system solutions to overcome the temperature limitations of current CSP systems, while lowering capital costs by enabling the use of advanced turbines and achieving a higher overall system efficiency in converting solar thermal energy into electricity. Applications to this FOA are expected to advance individual high temperature components which have been developed at lab scale, and test them as an integrated system at a multi-MW thermal scale that can accept solar thermal energy, store it, and efficiently deliver it to a working fluid at high temperature, representative of a high efficiency power cycle.

Formulation and Estimation of the Tradeoff between Fuels and Preparedness Budgets using... - 0 views

  •  
    The objectives of this research are to use simulated data from three or more national parks to econometrically estimate a production function where fuels and preparedness budgets are used to improve the value of the landscape. The landscape value is improved through fuel treatments aimed at hazardous fuel reductions and ecosystem improvement. It is also improved by preparedness through loss mitigation of fire affected values and by introducing fire in areas that promote ecosystem health. This research will, for the first time, quantify how the two programs (fuels and preparedness) interact to mutually improve the value of the landscape and associated natural and human resources. The second objective is to locate current programs on the econometrically derived value-added surface and to also identify how to manage increasing or declining budgets.

Rapid Assessment of Energy and Environmental Technologies - Federal Business Opportunit... - 0 views

  •  
    AFRL Advanced Power Technology Office has a need to improve the U.S. Air Force's energy security posture through rapid assessment of energy and environmental technologies. This effort is needed to maximize the benefit of a combination of increased energy resiliency/reliability where energy resilience is defined as the agility to maintain critical mission functions even during unexpected disruptions, increased cost-effectiveness to evaluate the trade-offs between lowest price and other priorities such as sustainability and resilience, and increased environmental sustainability.

BLM Utah Raptor Nest Inventory and Monitoring - 0 views

  •  
    BLM Utah is looking to enter into a partnership with a recipient to obtain valuable data regarding raptor use in areas that are of high value to potential future development through documentation of current nest status on old nest data, gain new nest locations and identify high raptor use areas. Information from this partnership would be used by the BLM to make informed management decisions. The project would focus on re-locating old raptor nests and identifying new nest locations. Information obtained through this project would provide valuable information to inform BLM decisions and siting of infrastructure related projects. The BLM would gain valuable data regarding raptor use in areas that are of high value to potential future development for oil and gas, solar, wind, geothermal energy resources, transmission, as well as recreation.

    Through this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), the Department's Office of Indian Energy is soliciting applications from Indian tribes (including Alaska Native regional corporations, village corporations, tribal consortia, and tribal organizations) and Tribal Energy Resource Development Organizations to install (1) facility-scale clean energy and energy efficiency projects and (2) community-scale clean energy projects on Indian lands. The Funding Opportunity Announcement is soliciting applications under two Topic Areas: (1) Install clean energy and energy efficiency retrofit projects for tribal buildings (Topic Area 1); a. Clean Energy Systems (Topic Area 1.a.) b. "Deep Energy Retrofit" Energy Efficiency Measures (Topic Area 1.b.) And, (2) Deploy clean energy systems on a community-scale (Topic Area 2). Under Topic Area 1, DOE is seeking applications for the deployment of facility-scale: (a) clean energy systems (renewable energy power systems or combined heat and power systems) to displace electrical, heating and/or cooling loads by at least 15%; and (b) deep energy retrofit energy efficiency measures to reduce the total of all energy used in a building or buildings by at least a 20%. Under Topic Area 2, DOE is soliciting applications for the deployment of community-scale clean energy systems of 50 kW or more (or for heating or cooling the Btu equivalent of 170,607 Btu/hour) on Indian lands to provide electricity, and/or heating or cooling for many buildings or to an entire tribal community. Under this FOA, a 50% cost share of total project costs (100% match against DOE funds) is required, unless an Applicant requests a reduction in the cost share as part of the application and receives approval from DOE. Applicants may request up to a 40% reduction in cost share, to no less than 10% of the total project costs. Cost share reduction requests to less than 10% will not be considered. If DOE does not grant a request for reduced cost share, the Applicant will
