DE-FOA-0002256: NOI - Solar Energy Technologies Office Fiscal Year 2020 Funding Program

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) intends to issue, on behalf of the Solar Energy Technologies Office, a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled “Solar Energy Technologies Office Fiscal Year 2020 Funding Program.”

The Solar Energy Technologies Office intends to announce a funding opportunity to support early-stage research and development of solar technologies that support use and integration of solar technologies onto the electric grid. The FOA may support innovative research efforts that lower solar electricity costs to promote energy affordability, securely and reliably integrate more solar energy onto the grid, and enhance the use and storage of solar energy. These efforts are intended to provide the technological foundations necessary to continue the solar industry’s growth and preserve American energy choice, independence, and security. The funding amount is subject to the availability of funds appropriated by Congress for the purpose of this program and the availability of future-year budget authority.
