All application submissions are to be made via the EERE eXCHANGE at http://eere.energy.gov/financing/exchange. To gain access to the EERE eXCHANGE, the applicant must first register and create an account on the main EERE eXCHANGE site. This account will then allow the user to register for any open EERE FOAs that are currently in eXCHANGE. It is recommended that each organization or business unit, whether acting as a team or a single entity, utilize one account as the appropriate contact information for each submission.
The applicant will receive an automated response when the preliminary or full application is received; this will serve as a confirmation of EERE receipt – please do not reply to the automated response. The applicant will have the opportunity to re-submit a revised preliminary or full application for any reason as long as the relevant submission is submitted by the specified deadline. A “User Guide” for the EERE eXCHANGE can be found on the EERE website http://eere.energy.gov/financing/exchange/Manuals.aspx after logging into the system.
Questions related to use of the EERE eXCHANGE website should be submitted to: EERE-ExchangeSupport@hq.doe.gov.
Questions related to the Funding Opportunity Announcement should be submitted to the applicable FOA email address and should be submitted not later than 3 calendar days prior to the preliminary application or full application due date. Questions submitted after that date may not allow the Government sufficient time to respond. Answers to questions will be posted on the Exchange website under this FOA. Applicants are encouraged to review the posted questions and answers daily.
