DE-FOA-0001373: Request for Information (RFI): Advanced Biofuel Blends in Small Engines

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s (EERE) Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) seeks stakeholder input on (1) the potential to optimize and/or modify small engines to utilize ethanol blends greater than 10% (E10) and (2) the barriers limiting the expansion of overall biofuel consumption in the small engine industry. The small engines of interest for this RFI are spark-ignition, internal combustion engines such as those found in small tractors, chainsaws, hand-held line trimmers, off-road motorcycles, generator sets, personal water craft, small outboard motors, snowmobiles, and all-terrain vehicles.

This is solely a request for information and not a FOA; therefore, DOE is not accepting applications at this time. DOE will not respond to questions related to this RFI.

Responses to this RFI must be submitted electronically to no later than 5:00pm EDT on 8/30/2015. Responses must be provided as attachments to an email.
