DE-FOA-0001595: Notice of Intent to Issue Funding Opportunity Announcement No. DE-FOA-0001518: “Scaling up the Next Generation of Building Efficiency Packages”.

Notice of Intent No. DE-FOA-0001595

Notice of Intent to Issue Funding Opportunity Announcement No. DE-FOA-0001518

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) intends to issue, on behalf of the Building Technologies Office, a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled “Scaling up the Next Generation of Building Efficiency Packages”.

The anticipated funding opportunity will seek innovative partnerships to significantly and rapidly increase the uptake of emerging and underutilized energy efficient and cost-effective building technology packages. The Commercial Buildings Integration (CBI) program, working in cooperation with the General Services Administration’s (GSA) Green Proving Ground program , will invest funds towards this competitive Funding Opportunity Announcement. EERE will seek applications that drive innovation in real building technology demonstrations while also fostering the collaboration of dynamic teams including deployment entities (states, local governments or Regional Energy Efficiency Organizations), efficient building hubs (such as Innovation or Incubator hubs), utilities, technology providers and/or building energy analysis professionals.

This anticipated FOA builds from the outcomes of existing demonstration projects, laboratory testing and simulation analysis of technology packages. Successful applicants to this FOA will propose high impact real building demonstrations led by strategically structured teams who will identify and verify the cost and energy performance of multi-system energy efficiency packages. Multi-system packages are groups of technologies that improve efficiency across two or more building systems: envelope, lighting/electrical, plug, process, heating, ventilation, cooling, refrigeration, energy management and information, sensors and controls. Applications selected for award negotiations through this funding opportunity will create new synergies between building stakeholder groups and ultimately leverage the $8 billion in annual Energy Efficiency (EE) program expenditures and/or support development of more aggressive and ambitious EE program offerings.

The purpose of this Notice is to provide potential applicants advance notice that the Buildings Technologies Office, on behalf of the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), intends to issue a FOA titled, DE-FOA-0001518: “Scaling up the Next Generation of Building Efficiency Packages”. 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. It is anticipated that this FOA will be posted to EERE Exchange on or about October 2016.
