Marine and Hydrokinetic System Performance Advancement

Open Date: 04/25/2013

Close Date: 06/03/2013

Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

Funding Number: DE-FOA-0000848


The purpose of this amendment is to Revise SECTION III-ELIGIBILITY INFORMATION-to make Field Work Proposals a requirement if DOE National Laboratory Contractors or Other Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) Contractors are proposed as partners. All other parts of the Funding Opportunity Announcement remain unchanged.

The objective of the Marine and Hydrokinetic System Performance Advancement FOA is to advance technology performance of existing marine and hydrokinetic systems through the development and application of innovative components that are designed and built specifically for MHK applications. This FOA will focus on improving the cost competitiveness of systems already in development, with the goal of advancing the technology performance of these systems. This FOA will support component development projects in three topic areas that have the greatest potential to impact power to weight ratio and availability:

  • Topic Area 1: Advanced Controls to improve energy capture, availability, and safety.
  • Topic Area 2: Next-Gen Power Take-Off (PTO) to increase energy efficiency, reduce weight, and improve reliability.
  • Topic Area 3: Optimized Structures to improve energy capture, reduce weight, and improve reliability.

For more information, see the full solicitation.
