Baseload Concentrating Solar Power Generation

Open Date: 07/15/2009

Close Date: 10/15/2009

Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

Funding Number: DE-FOA-0000104


The objective of this Funding Opportunity Announcement is to develop and evaluate Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) components and/or systems that will lead to solar power plants with a capacity to generate electricity at costs competitive to fossil-fired generators. The announcement includes two topic areas:

  1. Research and development of concepts and components that can be part of a CSP baseload system
  2. Evaluation of the feasibility of a complete CSP baseload system and development of a prototype system that can be implemented in the field. The projects will be conducted in three phases.

Phase 1 will involve conducting system feasibility and preliminary design work. Phase 2 will involve performing engineering design. Phase 3 will focus on detailed engineering design and prototype testing/evaluation.

For more information, see the full solicitation.
