DE-FOA-0002945: Onsite Energy Technical Assistance Partnerships

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is issuing, on behalf of the Industrial Efficiency and Decarbonization Office (IEDO), a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled “Onsite Energy Technical Assistance Partnerships.” This FOA will invest up to $23 million for the development and operations of the Onsite Energy Technical Assistance Partnerships (TAPs). This FOA supports DOE’s industrial decarbonization strategy by providing technical assistance to help industrial facilities and other large energy users increase the adoption of clean onsite energy technologies.

For nearly two decades, DOE has supported a regional network of technical assistance providers, known as the CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships (CHP TAPs). The CHP TAPs promote and assist in transforming the market for CHP, waste heat to power, and district energy technologies throughout the United States. To meet the evolving needs in the industrial sector, EERE is initiating a broader TAP program with the goal of providing similar services for a broader set of technologies that include renewable energy and storage through a new Onsite Energy TAP Program.

Awards will fund entities to provide direct technical services to assist end-users and other stakeholders with identifying technology options for achieving clean energy objectives. Technical services can range from initial site screenings to more advanced analysis to support project installations. The Onsite Energy TAPs will also engage with policymakers, utilities, and other key stakeholders to accelerate pathways for integration of onsite energy technologies. Additional activities will include developing public tools and resources, sharing best practices, and building partnerships that drive decarbonization in the U.S. industrial sector.

This FOA will make awards in two Topic Areas.

Topic Area 1: Regional Onsite Energy TAPs will fund up to 10 entities to serve as regional Onsite Energy TAPs. Each TAP will represent a multi-state region and serve as the primary technical, market, and policy point of contact for end-users and other state and local stakeholders that engage with the Onsite Energy TAP Program.

Topic Area 2: Onsite Energy Technical Analysis and Support Center (TASC), will fund one (1) national entity to serve in the role of Onsite Energy Technical Analysis and Support Center. The TASC will centrally coordinate technical analysis and programmatic activities of the Onsite Energy TAP Program. The TASC will serve as the liaison between the regional Onsite Energy TAPs, the IEDO Program Manager, and national lab experts supporting this program.

The eXCHANGE system is currently designed to enforce hard deadlines for Concept Paper and Full Application submissions. The APPLY and SUBMIT buttons automatically disable at the defined submission deadlines. The intention of this design is to consistently enforce a standard deadline for all applicants.

Applicants that experience issues with submissions PRIOR to the FOA Deadline: In the event that an Applicant experiences technical difficulties with a submission, the Applicant should contact the eXCHANGE helpdesk for assistance (exchangehelp@hq.doe.gov). The eXCHANGE helpdesk and/or the EERE eXCHANGE System Administrators (eXCHANGE@ee.doe.gov) will assist the Applicant in resolving all issues.

Applicants that experience issues with submissions that result in a late submission: In the event that an Applicant experiences technical difficulties with a submission that results in a late submission, the Applicant should contact the eXCHANGE helpdesk for assistance (exchangehelp@hq.doe.gov). The eXCHANGE helpdesk and/or the EERE eXCHANGE System Administrators (eXCHANGE@ee.doe.gov) will assist the Applicant in resolving all issues (including finalizing the submission on behalf of, and with the Applicant's concurrence). DOE will only accept late applications when the Applicant has a) encountered technical difficulties beyond their control; b) has contacted the eXCHANGE helpdesk for assistance; and c) has submitted the application through eXCHANGE within 24 hours of the FOA's posted deadline.

Please see the full FOA in the DOCUMENTS section below.

DE-FOA-0002909: Notice of Intent to Issue: Funding Opportunity Announcement No. DE-FOA-0002910 and Funding Opportunity Announcement No. DE-FOA-0002946

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) intends to issue, on behalf of the Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO), two Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs):

1. DE-FOA-0002910, entitled "Reducing Carbon Intensity and Protecting Algal Crops (RACIPAC)” and

2. DE-FOA-0002946, entitled “2023 Conversion R&D FOA."

These FOAs support the Bioenergy Technologies Office’s research and development (R&D) priorities in the areas of (a) Renewable Carbon Resources (RCR) and (b) Conversion. Specifically, the RACIPAC FOA will support high-impact R&D focusing on reducing the carbon intensity of agricultural feedstocks, improving soil carbon levels, and protecting cultivated algal crops from pests. The Conversion R&D FOA will support development of technologies that convert domestic lignocellulosic biomass and waste resources including industrial syngas into affordable biofuels and bioproducts that significantly reduce carbon emissions on a life-cycle basis (minimum of 70% decrease in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions), compared to equivalent petroleum-based products.

The R&D activities to be funded under both FOAs support the government-wide approach to the climate crisis by driving innovations that lead to the deployment of clean energy technologies. These FOAs will advance President Biden’s Administration’s goals to “deliver an equitable, clean energy future, and put the United States on a path to achieve net-zero emissions, economy-wide, by no later than 2050.“1 R&D activities funded from these FOAs provide routes to transform renewable carbon resources such as agricultural residues and algae into high-quality, environmentally sustainable, conversion-ready feedstocks and to develop and deploy the conversion technologies for the production of chemicals and fuels with >70% reduction in GHG emissions. Additionally, these FOAs will support the President’s goal to produce 3 billion gallons of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) per year and reduce aviation emissions by 20% by 2030, both of which will unlock the potential for a fully zero-carbon aviation sector by 2050.

It is anticipated the FOAs may include the following Areas of Interest:

1. Reducing Agricultural Carbon Intensity and Protecting Algal Crops FOA (RACIPAC):

Area of Interest (AOI) 1: Climate-Smart Agricultural Practices for Low Carbon Intensity (CI) Feedstocks

Area of Interest 2: Algae Crop Protection

2. 2023 Conversion R&D FOA:

Area of Interest 1: Overcoming Barriers to Syngas Conversion

Area of Interest 2: Strategic Opportunities for Decarbonization of the Chemicals Industry Through Biocatalysts

This Notice is issued so that interested parties are aware of the EERE’s intention to issue these FOAs in the near term. All of the information contained in this Notice is subject to change. EERE will not respond to questions concerning this Notice. Once the FOAs have been released, EERE will provide an avenue for potential Applicants to submit questions.

EERE plans to issue the FOAs in or around January 2023 via the EERE eXCHANGE website https://eere-eXCHANGE.energy.gov/.

DE-LC-000L098: FY23 Technology Commercialization Fund (TCF) Base Annual Appropriations Core Laboratory Infrastructure for Market Readiness (CLIMR) Lab Call

This lab call represents the combined effort of nine distinct U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Technology Offices. The Department of Energy Technology Commercialization Fund (TCF) was established by Congress through the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct05) and reauthorized by the Energy Act of 2020 (EA 2020) to “promote promising energy technologies for commercial purposes.” Within DOE, the Office of Technology Transitions (OTT) is charged with leading policy and programs related to technology commercialization. The goal of TCF is to improve America’s energy competitiveness and security by accelerating commercialization and the shepherding of critical energy technologies from the lab to the market, where the private sector will continue to innovate.

For Fiscal Year 2023 (FY23), DOE continues to implement the revised approach with TCF for Base Annual Appropriations. Persistent barriers and known gaps that deter the commercialization of laboratory technologies continue to exist and improvements are still needed. The intent of the Core Laboratory Infrastructure for Commercialization topics (Topics 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6) are to fill in missing infrastructure pieces and strengthen those already there by addressing core commercialization challenges, barriers, and gaps, as well as their root causes (inside and outside of the labs). Additionally, for FY23, the lab call will also seek proposals from Labs to advance the commercialization of individual energy-related technologies (Topic 4).

DE-FOA-0002776: Geothermal Energy from Oil and gas Demonstrated Engineering (GEODE) Funding Opportunity Announcement

Attention: This FOA has been updated. Please see the ‘Full FOA Mod 0001 Document’ in the Documents section below.


The Geothermal Energy from Oil and gas Demonstrated Engineering (GEODE) Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits an administrator to establish and lead a consortium committed to facilitating collaborative research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) focused on realizing technology improvements and transfer from oil and gas, deploying geothermal energy nationwide, evaluating and recommending ways to address regulatory and permitting barriers, and developing opportunities in the geothermal sector for the skilled oil and gas workforce.

The U.S. geothermal resource is vast, however, only a small portion of it has been developed due to the unique technological challenges associated with geothermal environments and a regulatory system that requires long lead times to secure needed operational permits. The mature, domestic oil and gas industry can provide a great deal of benefit on overcoming the remaining barriers in geothermal technology. The Geothermal Technologies Office seeks to develop a means through which the oil and gas and geothermal industries can collaborate and undertake beneficial research and development aimed at addressing the challenges in the geothermal industry and facilitating increased deployment of geothermal technologies nationwide.

Therefore, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is seeking an organization to function as a consortium administrator that can:

Establish a clear structure and methodology for initiating and executing a research agenda, as defined by the consortium members and DOE Manage RD&D efforts in support of consortium priorities. While it is required that the majority of the planned RD&D is executed through competitive solicitations run by the consortium administrator, the consortium (including the consortium administrator) may contribute directly to RD&D execution in areas in which sufficient technical expertise and resources exist (described in detail in later sections of this FOA).Attract and secure key industry partners as members, including the geothermal industry as well as oil and gas operators, service companies, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and potential electric or thermal market consumersProvide strong organizational leadership across technical disciplines and establish a robust model to leverage RD&D expertise and non-DOE funding (if feasible) to enhance commercialization opportunities of technologies and methodologiesServe as a primary point of contact for the consortium, with full accountability to DOE. This will include defining, managing and implementing clear membership operating structures and strategies for participation by a wide range of stakeholders in the consortium; leveraging federal funds through industry matching (minimum of 20% cost sharing); and providing the necessary agreements to enable collaboration with all stakeholders along the geothermal value chain, including end-users, to allow them to benefit from the consortium results.


Attention: This FOA has been updated. Please see the ‘Full FOA Mod 0001 Document’ in the Documents section below.

DE-FOA-0002769: Bipartisan Infrastructure Law: Advancing Equity through Workforce Partnerships

Modification 00001: Extended the Full Application Submission Deadline from 12/6/2022 to 12/16/2022 5:00pmET. Updated the FOA timeline on the FOA cover page to accommodate this change. Updated Section IV.E.v – Statement of Project Objectives (SOPO) to show maximum number of pages for SOPO (5 pages).


Background and Context

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is issuing, on behalf of the Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO), this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). Awards made under this FOA will be funded, in whole or in part, with funds appropriated by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, also more commonly known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL).

Under Section 41007(c)(1), the BIL provides funding to carry out research, development, demonstration, and commercialization activities relating to solar energy technologies, which includes conducting workforce development activities.

The activities to be funded under this FOA support the broader government-wide approach to addressing the climate crisis and maximize the benefits of the clean energy transition as the nation works to curb the climate crisis, empower workers, and advance environmental justice.


Program Purpose

This FOA supports the administration goals laid out above by supporting the development of workforce programs and partnerships that will facilitate the continued deployment of solar energy technologies, while supporting an inclusive workforce with opportunities for career advancement, including through union membership. As part of the whole-of-government approach to advance equity and encourage worker organizing and collective bargaining, this FOA and any related activities will seek to encourage meaningful engagement and participation of labor unions and underserved communities and underrepresented groups, including consultation with Tribal Nations.


Areas of Interest

SETO will consider and evaluate a variety of multi-stakeholder high-road training partnership proposals under this FOA. Projects should primarily relate to PV solar deployment and associated careers including in installation, system design, operations and maintenance (O&M), electrical work, project management, sales, and business operations. Proposals focused on manufacturing for solar PV modules and other equipment will be considered, but is not expected to be the primary area of focus for the funding program. Proposals related to CSP or other solar-thermal heating systems will not be considered.
