U.S. Wind Power: Next Gen Drivetrain Development

Open Date: 02/07/2011

Close Date: 04/01/2011

Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

Funding Number: DE-FOA-0000439

Summary:

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.
