Funding Available For Installation Energy Technology Demonstrations


Source: Environmental Security Technology Certification Program

ARLINGTON, VA, February 2, 2012—The Department of Defense (DoD), through the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP), supports the demonstration of technologies that address priority DoD installation energy requirements. The demonstrations are intended to generate supporting cost and performance data needed for validation of the technology. The goal is to accelerate the deployment of innovative energy technologies and to enable promising technologies to receive end user acceptance and be fielded and commercialized more rapidly.

ESTCP is seeking proposals for demonstrations of energy technologies on DoD installations as candidates for funding in Fiscal Year (FY) 2013. The solicitation requests pre-proposals via Calls for Proposals to DoD organizations and Federal (Non-DoD) organizations and via a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for Private Sector organizations.

ESTCP requests pre-proposals for the following topics:
(1) Smart Secure Integrated Installation Energy Management;
(2) Cost Effective On-Site Distributed Generation;
(3) Advanced Component Technologies to Improve Building Energy Efficiency;
(4) Advanced Building Energy Management and Control;
(5) Tools and Processes for Decision-making Associated with Energy Use and Management; and
(6) (DOD ONLY) Advanced Water Management and Controls for DoD Buildings.

THE DUE DATE FOR ALL PRE-PROPOSALS IS THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 2012. More information about the solicitation, including instructions and deadlines, is available on the SERDP and ESTCP web site at www.serdp-estcp.org/Funding-Opportunities/ESTCP-Solicitations/Installation-Energy-Solicitation.

WEBINAR for the ESTCP INSTALLATION ENERGY SOLICITATION – February 16: ESTCP Director Dr. Jeffrey Marqusee will conduct an online seminar “ESTCP Installation Energy Funding Opportunities” on February 16, 2012, from 1:00-2:00 p.m. Eastern Time. This “how to play” briefing will offer valuable information for those interested in new ESTCP funding opportunities related to energy topics. During the online seminar, participants may ask questions about the funding process, the current ESTCP solicitation, and the proposal submission process. Pre-registration for this webinar is required. To register, visit https://cc.readytalk.com/r/vk9b46eechz7.
