Notice of Intent to Issue Funding Opportunity Announcement No. DE-FOA-0000982
Open Date: 12/18/2013
Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
Funding Number: DE-FOA-0000982
The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy intends to issue, on behalf of the Wind and Water Power Technologies Office, a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled "U.S. Wind Manufacturing: Taller Hub Heights to Access Higher Wind Resources, and Lower Cost of Energy." The proposed FOA will support the development of technologies that mitigate U.S. transportation and logistics constraints affecting the deployment of taller utility-scale wind turbine systems. The FOA is expected to focus on innovative designs and processes for wind turbine tower manufacturing and turbine system installation. Supported potential projects will develop integrated tower and erection solutions which are demonstrably cost-competitive over the entire tower lifecycle of fabrication through decommissioning, for multi-megawatt turbine hub heights of at least 120 meters. NO APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED THROUGH THIS NOTICE. Please do not submit questions or respond to this Notice of Intent. Prospective applicants to the FOA should begin developing partnerships, formulating ideas, and gathering data in anticipation of the issuance of this FOA.
