RFI - Administration of the Wave Energy Converter Prize
Open Date: 12/02/2013
Close Date: 12/29/2013
Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
Funding Number: DE-FOA-0001048
The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to solicit feedback from industry, academia, research laboratories, government agencies, and other stakeholders on issues related to the use of a prize competition for advancing the development of new and next generation wave energy converter devices. EERE is specifically interested in information on any obstacles or challenges that could limit stakeholder interest in applying to the proposed Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for the administration of this prize competition. In addition, EERE is interested in gaining an understanding of the number of potential candidates who would likely have the qualifications, expertise, and experience to successfully administer a WEC Prize competition. This RFI is intended to gather feedback from stakeholders prior to DOE potentially issuing a FOA. This RFI is not a FOA; therefore, DOE is not accepting applications at this time. All responses to this RFI must be provided as an attachment (in Microsoft Word format) to an e-mail message addressed to WECPrizeRFI@go.doe.gov. Responses must be received no later than 5:00PM ET on December 29, 2013.
For more information, see the full solicitation.
Funding amounts and schedules are subject to change.
