DE-FOA-0001541: RFI: Eagle Impact Minimization Technologies and Field Testing Opportunities

The Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) invites input from the public regarding a potential funding opportunity to advance the readiness of technologies intended to reduce eagle mortalities at operational wind turbines or wind facilities. EERE seeks input on the focus and structure of a potential funding opportunity to support both technology field testing and validation activities and focused research and development to advance eagle impact minimization technologies towards commercialization, and on how to prioritize funding for research within this framework. Additionally, EERE is seeking input on the conditions under which technology vendors or developers would consider participating in a campaign to field test and validate their technologies and the conditions under which wind farm owner/operators would consider hosting field testing and validation activities at their operational facilities.

This RFI is not a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA); therefore, EERE is not accepting applications at this time.  EERE may issue a FOA in the future based on or related to the content and responses to this RFI; however, EERE may also elect not to issue a FOA.  There is no guarantee that a FOA will be issued as a result of this RFI.  Responding to this RFI does not provide any advantage or disadvantage to potential applicants if EERE chooses to issue a FOA regarding the subject matter.
