Combined Heat and Power Systems Technology Development and Demonstration
Open Date: 06/08/2009
Close Date: 08/04/2009
Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
Funding Number: DE-FOA-0000016
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) seeks cost-shared applications for Combined Heat and Power Technology Development and Demonstration. This FOA is targeted at meaningful technical advancements that will broaden CHP economic and environmental value propositions in vastly under exploited vertical market segments. Concurrently, strategic demonstrations are sought that will address the risk averse nature of potential CHP users, including concerns on the impact on electricity grid operations, regulatory paradigms and business models that have the effect of inhibiting CHP growth.
The 3 Areas of Interest are based on the output range of the CHP system, as follows:
- Area of Interest 1: Large CHP Systems (less than or equal to 20 MW)
- Area of Interest 2: Medium CHP Systems (less than or equal to 1MW to less than 20 MW)
- Area of Interest 3: Small CHP Systems (less than or equal to 5kW to less than 1 MW) All three Areas seek applications that will perform research, development and demonstration of technologies that increase the efficiency and reduce the cost of CHP systems.
