NOI - Demonstration Project for Concentrating Solar Technologies

Open Date: 12/16/2010

Close Date: 03/30/2011

Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

Funding Number: DE-FOA-0000233

Summary:

The Department of Energy (DOE) intends to issue a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to facilitate the demonstration of utility-scale, Concentrating Solar Technologies, which include Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) and Concentrating Photovoltaics (CPV), within the next 30 to 60 days. The goal of the DOE Solar Energy Technologies Program is to develop solar technologies that are competitive with conventional electricity without subsidy. The objective of the demonstration project for Concentrating Solar Technologies FOA is to enable advanced technologies to bridge the gap between system development and commercial deployment. This FOA would support the demonstration of CSP and CPV technology at a sufficient scale to prove their readiness for utility-scale power production. Technologies and systems that successfully complete demonstrations under this program may be better positioned to secure financing from private sources for utility scale projects.
