DE-FOA-0000898: Notice of Intent to Issue FOA: Assisting Federal Facilities with Energy Conservation Technologies (AFFECT)

The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP), on behalf of the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, intends to issue a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) initially titled “Assisting Federal Facilities with Energy Conservation Technologies (AFFECT).”  NO APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED THROUGH THIS NOTICE.  The AFFECT FOA will provide direct funding to U.S. Federal agencies for the development of capital projects and other initiatives to increase the energy efficiency and renewable energy investments at agency facilities.

It is anticipated that the FOA will include the following two (2) topic areas:

Topic Area 1: Combined Heat and Power (CHP); and

Topic Area 2: Renewable Energy, including solar, wind, biomass, landfill gas, ocean, geothermal, waste to energy, and new hydroelectric energy technologies.

The purpose of this Notice is to encourage prospective applicants to begin formulating ideas, gathering data, and developing partnerships in anticipation of the issuance of the FOA. Prior to FOA issuance, FEMP is making technical assistance available upon request to Federal agencies to identify and analyze CHP or renewable energy opportunities and technologies.  FEMP technical assistance related to the objectives of the AFFECT FOA will only be available to Federal agencies up until the release of the FOA, which is tentatively scheduled for release in the first quarter of fiscal year (FY) 2014.
