DOE announces intent to issue $22 million MHK FOA in March
The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) intends to issue, on behalf of the Wind and Water Power Technologies Office, a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled “Marine and Hydrokinetic Energy Conversion and Environmental Monitoring Technology Advancement”.
This FOA is soliciting applications that propose projects supporting the marine and hydrokinetic (MHK) industry in two Topic Areas. Topic Area 1 will help advance wave and current energy (ocean/tidal/river) technologies by supporting projects that integrate advanced MHK components into system designs and then demonstrate the improved systems in full-scale open-water tests. Topic Area 2 will support the innovation, testing and validation of instrumentation for monitoring potential environmental impacts of MHK devices.
