RFI - Designation Program for Solar Energy Stakeholders
Open Date: 11/14/2012
Close Date: 01/04/2013
Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
Funding Number: DE-FOA-0000771
The United States (U.S.) Department of Energy (DOE) seeks information from the public on the design and implementation of a potential multi-stakeholder solar designation program, and to investigate the possible effectiveness of such a program to incentivize positive changes that eliminate market inefficiencies, lower costs, and increase solar deployment. DOE is looking for general feedback from all relevant stakeholders and from specific categories of stakeholders, as identified later in this Request for Information (RFI). Please note that this RFI is not intended to gather information regarding the development of a designation program for solar hardware products (e.g., photovoltaic modules, racking systems), but rather is meant to investigate a possible designation for communities, installers, property owners, businesses, financial institutions, and utilities.
All responses to this RFI must be delivered electronically in Microsoft Word or PDF format as an attachment in an email sent to: SolarDesignation@go.doe.gov by 5:00 PM Eastern Standard Time on January 4, 2013. Emails should have the subject line "Solar Designation RFI Response."
For more information, see the full solicitation.
Funding amounts and schedules are subject to change.
