Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
Funding Number: DE-FOA-0000439
Through this Funding Opportunity Announcement, the Wind and Water Power Program within the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy is interested in developing next generation wind turbine drivetrain technologies to reduce the cost of energy (COE) produced by wind turbines. Advances in drivetrain technologies are expected to have a direct effect on capital costs, operation and maintenance costs, replacement costs, and/or lifetime energy production. DOE seeks projects that will produce conceptual designs and conduct risk reduction analyses for innovative, next generation drivetrain systems.
