Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

Funding Number: DE-FOA-0000486


The following domestic entities are eligible to apply for this announcement:

  1. institutions of higher education;
  2. nonprofit and for-profit private entities;
  3. State and local governments; and
  4. consortia of entities (1) through (3).

All types of domestic entities, including DOE/NNSA National Laboratory Contractors and non-DOE Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) Contractors, are eligible to apply, except other Federal agencies, and nonprofit organizations described in section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 that engaged in lobbying activities after December 31, 1995. Foreign entities are not allowed to be prime recipients, however they can be subrecipients.

Please be advised that those entities that form teams with DOE national laboratories in which the laboratory is a Prime Recipient (i.e., lead participant) will be required to enter into subcontracts with the laboratory. As such, the terms and conditions of the Management and Operating contract between the laboratory and the Department of Energy will be in effect for any subcontracts, and not the traditional provisions associated with a financial assistance award. DOE national laboratories acting as Prime Recipients must make all applicable terms and conditions available to their subcontractors prior to submission of their applications. Any entities considering such teaming arrangements should request the laboratory to provide the applicable terms and conditions prior to the Prime Recipient submitting a response to this FOA.

For more information, see the full solicitation.
