DE-FOA-0001297: ASSISTING FEDERAL FACILITIES WITH ENERGY CONSERVATION TECHNOLOGIES (AFFECT), FY 2015

 

As part of DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), FEMP works with key individuals to accomplish energy change within organizations by bringing expertise from all levels of project and policy implementation to enable Federal agencies to meet energy-related goals and to provide energy leadership to the country. The AFFECT FOA for FY 2015 will provide direct funding to Federal agencies for the development of capital projects to initiate, supplement, improve or otherwise increase the viability and deployment of renewable energy investments at U.S. Federal government-owned facilities. The intent of the AFFECT FOA is for these capital projects to help facilitate the wider adoption of these technologies at other Federal facilities. Using the authority provided in Public Law 102-486, funding provided under the AFFECT FOA will implement FEMP’s continuing efforts to promote widespread energy efficiency and renewable energy technology deployment in the Federal sector. Projects selected for funding under the AFFECT FOA will support FEMP’s ongoing effort to build agency capacity through project implementation, encourage energy cost savings, and promote significant recipient involvement through cost leveraging from both Federal and non-Federal sources.

There is one topic area to which an application may be submitted under this FOA: Renewable Energy.

There are two mandatory parts to the application process:

- Letter of Intent
