Notice of Intent to Issue Funding Opportunity Announcement No. DE-FOA-0000984 Wind Forecasting Improvement Project in Complex Terrain
Open Date: 02/11/2014
Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
Funding Number: DE-FOA-0001049
The Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) intends to issue, on behalf of the Wind and Water Power Technologies Office (WWPTO), a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled "Wind Forecasting Improvement Project in Complex Terrain." By researching physical processes in complex terrain that drive wind and ramp events, the WWPTO is seeking proposals for improving short-term (0 to 15 hour) wind forecasts. Additionally the research is intended to benefit the day-ahead wind forecasts as well in order to benefit the U.S. wind industry. This FOA will fund one recipient to populate a study area (approximately 800 by 800 kilometers) with additional meteorological instrumentation and equipment to measure specific physical properties. The WWPTO is interested in the region between the Rocky Mountains and the Pacific coastline as a candidate area for studying these physical properties. This notice is issued so that interested parties are aware of the EERE's intention to issue this FOA in early 2014. All of the information contained in this Notice is subject to change. EERE will not respond to questions concerning this notice. Once the FOA has been released, EERE will provide an avenue for potential applicants to submit questions.
For more information, see the full solicitation.
