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 after logging in to the system.
