DOE Extends Closing Date of Hydrogen Sensor Funding Opportunity Announcement

April 27, 2009

(Note: This solicitation was cancelled May 8, 2009.) The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has extended the closing date for the hydrogen sensor Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to May 14.  This FOA is for developing low-cost sensor technologies that can be directly integrated with hydrogen systems and are resistant to contaminants. The sensor must detect/measure hydrogen in situ. For each sensor project, an applicant must explain how a proposed technology will exceed the current state of the art. The goal is to develop a sensing technology to determine the presence of hydrogen before it reaches a flammable mixture. Sensors should be suitable for at least one of the following applications: stationary systems, portable devices, transportation, or infrastructure.

The purpose of this amendment is to:

  • Allow applications to be submitted through FedConnect. However, if you have already submitted an application in Grants.gov, you do not need to resubmit to FedConnect.  Submit your application to only one of these sites. (Note: Grants.gov FOA Number DE-PS36-09GO99004 can be found in FedConnect as FOA Number DE-FOA-0000083.)
  • Extend the closing date to May 14, 2009. 
  • Clarify federal laboratory and other federal agency eligibility.

The technical scope of the announcement remains unchanged.
