DE-FOA-0001667: ASSISTING FEDERAL FACILITIES WITH ENERGY CONSERVATION TECHNOLOGIES (AFFECT) 2017

 Under this FY2017 “Assisting Federal Facilities with Energy Conservation Technologies” (AFFECT) Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) will provide grants to Federal agencies for projects that are incorporated into a privately financed performance contract, such as an Energy Savings Performance Contract or Utility Energy Service Contract, or as part of a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). Applications for projects that are financed through appropriations will also be considered. A key merit review criterion will be how much private and/or agency funds are leveraged against the FEMP AFFECT grant funding. Also, Applicants will be asked to show how the proposed project results are conducive to broader adoption at other Federal facilities and will impact the direction, strategy, and thinking of the agency to engage in similar efforts at other Federal facilities.
