DE-FOA-0001194: Notice of Intent to Issue FOA DE-FOA-0001168 - Deploying Solutions to Improve the Energy Efficiency of U.S. Commercial Buildings

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) intends to issue, on behalf of the Buildings Technology Office, a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) number DE-FOA-0001168 entitled “Deploying Solutions to Improve the Energy Efficiency of U.S. Commercial Buildings”.

Through this FOA, DOE seeks to fund the scale-up of promising solutions to the market barriers that hinder the growth of energy efficiency in the commercial building sector. The objective of this funding is to build a path for market-ready solutions to be used at scale across the U.S. to improve building energy efficiency. 

In order for the Building Technologies Office Commercial Building Integration Program to meet DOE’s national energy efficiency goals for commercial buildings (20% improvement by 2020; 50% by 2030), the program has invested in the development of resources, tools, and solutions designed to help overcome these barriers to energy efficiency.  DOE’s Commercial Building Integration Program is interested in funding proposals that deploy these resources and solutions, through successful existing programs or innovative new ones, to increase program effectiveness and increase energy savings in commercial buildings.

The full Notice of Intent DE-FOA-0001194 is posted in the FOA Documents section of this NOI.

Prospective applicants to the FOA should begin developing partnerships, formulating ideas, and gathering data in anticipation of the issuance of this FOA. DOE plans to issue the FOA in or around the last calendar quarter in 2014. The applicant must first register and create an account on the EERE eXCHANGE website.
