Modification 0001: The deadline for responses to this RFI has been extended to 5:00 PM ET on 2/10/17.

The purpose of this RFI is to solicit feedback from industry, academia, research laboratories, government agencies, and other stakeholders on issues related to development of hydropower in new stream-reaches. EERE is specifically interested in information on the costs/benefits and environmental impacts associated with such development, and possible solutions to address the related challenges. EERE is seeking input on the focus and structure of a potential funding opportunity to support research and development of advanced and/or non-traditional transformative hydropower technologies and project designs capable of avoiding or minimizing adverse environmental and social impacts for new cost-competitive hydropower development in undeveloped stream-reaches of the United States.

The complete RFI can be accessed under the "Documents" heading below.

Responses to this RFI must be submitted electronically to no later than 5:00pm ET on 2/10/17. Responses must be provided as attachments to an email.

This RFI is not a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA); therefore, EERE is not accepting applications at this time.
