Department of Energy (DOE) – Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for Microgrid Research, Development, and System Design

The United States (U.S.) Department of Energy (DOE) – National Energy Technology

Laboratory (NETL), on behalf of the Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability (OE), is seeking applications for research and development (R&D) and testing of advanced commercial-grade microgrid controllers capable of managing/controlling microgrid systems consisting of between 1 and 10 megawatts (MW) of aggregated generation capacity. An overarching objective of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is that the developed controllers will enable communities in the United States to develop/design (and ultimately deploy) microgrid systems that will aid achievement of the DOE program targets as defined in Section I.B of this FOA and meeting specific objectives for energy resilience (including protection of critical infrastructure and public resources) as defined by the participating communities. While it is expected these objectives will vary depending on regional and other circumstances, the focus should be on strengthening the resilience of electrical infrastructure against adverse effects of future extreme weather phenomena and other unforeseen occurrences, so as to support efforts to prepare the nation for the impacts of climate change (as set forth in Executive Order 136532 ) and the goal of “building stronger and safer communities and infrastructure” in accordance with the President’s Climate Action Plan.

RISE: NYC – Resiliency Innovations for a Stronger Economy

RISE : NYC is a competition designed to identify and deploy creative new technologies and solutions to make New York City businesses more resilient to the impacts of future storms, sea level rise and other effects of climate change. Through the competition, up to $30 million is available to fund projects that use innovative measures to make the city’s buildings and infrastructure networks in areas impacted by Hurricane Sandy and/or vulnerable to future storms more resilient.
