Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Department of Energy (DOE).
Request for Information (RFI) and public comment.
The Department of Energy (DOE) today invites public comment on its Request for Information (RFI) number DE-FOA-0001203 regarding “Assisting Federal Facilities with Energy Conservation Technologies Fiscal Year 2015.” The RFI document is posted at https://eere-exchange.energy.gov/.
EERE intends to issue, on behalf of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP), a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled “Assisting Federal Facilities with Energy Conservation Technologies Fiscal Year 2015 (AFFECT 2015).” This RFI seeks input from interested parties and stakeholders regarding the subject of the anticipated FOA and related details. If the FOA is issued, it will likely provide grants to Federal agencies for renewable energy 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 renewable energy Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). Applications for renewable energy projects that are financed through appropriations will also be considered. If the FOA is issued, it will be released at some point in Fiscal Year 2015, which began October 1, 2014 and ends September 30, 2015.
This is solely a Request for Information and not a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). EERE is not accepting applications.
Responses to the RFI must be received by November 13, 2014.
The complete RFI document is located at https://eere-exchange.energy.gov/.
