DE-FOA-0001181: Modification 0003 Wind Energy - Bat Impact Minimization Technologies and Field Testing Opportunities

The purpose of Modification 0003 is to update the Submission Deadline for Replies to Reviewer Comments from Feb. 2, 2015 to Feb. 13, 2015.

To address and minimize the regulatory and financial risks associated with wind power development in locations with sensitive bat species, the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Wind and Water Power Technologies Office (WWPTO) within the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) seeks to fund Research and Development (R&D) projects that advance the technical readiness of bat impact mitigation and minimization technologies.  This FOA will also support the field testing and evaluation of near-commercial bat impact mitigation technologies, which if successful, will provide regulators and wind facility owner-operators with viable and cost effective tools to reduce their impacts on bats and ease the regulatory & financial uncertainty related to the development and long-term operation of wind farms in bat habitat.

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 applications.

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 (EERE-ExchangeSupport@hq.doe.gov). The Exchange helpdesk &/or the EERE eXCHANGE System Administrators (EERE-ExchangeSupport@hq.doe.gov) will assist the Applicant in resolving all issues.

DE-FOA-0001209: Notice of Intent to Issue Funding Opportunity Announcement No. DE-FOA-0001181: Wind Energy Bat Impact Minimization Technologies and Field Testing Opportunities

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) intends to issue, on behalf of the Wind and Water Power Technologies Office, a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled “Wind Energy Bat Impact Minimization Technologies and Field Testing Opportunities.”

 

To address and minimize the regulatory and financial risks associated with wind power development in locations with sensitive bat species, the Department of Energy’s Wind and Water Power Technologies Office (WWPTO) seeks through this FOA to fund projects that advance the technical and commercial readiness of bat impact mitigation and minimization technologies including, but not limited to, bat deterrents and operational changes that have a high likelihood of reducing bat mortality at a facility. This FOA will also support the demonstration and evaluation of near-commercial bat impact mitigation technologies at operational wind facilities. These technologies, once successfully demonstrated, will provide regulators and wind facility owner-operators with viable and cost effective tools to reduce bat mortality at wind facilities and ease the regulatory and financial uncertainty related to the development and long-term operation of wind farms in bat habitat.

 

The full Notice of Intent (NOI) DE-FOA-0001209 is posted in the FOA Documents section of this NOI. 

 

NO APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED THROUGH THIS NOTICE. Please do not submit questions or respond to this Notice of Intent. Prospective applicants to the FOA should begin developing partnerships, formulating ideas, and gathering data in anticipation of the issuance of this FOA. EERE plans to issue the FOA in the first Quarter of Fiscal Year 2015 (by December 31, 2014). The applicant must first register and create an account on the EERE eXCHANGE website. A User Guide for EERE eXCHANGE can be found on the EERE website https://eere-exchange.energy.gov/Manuals.aspx after logging in to the system.
