DoE issues notice of intent for FOA

Published by , Assistant Editor
World Coal,

The US Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy and NETL have issued a Notice of Intent for a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) expected to fund cost-shared research and development (R&D) projects on next-generation coal gasification technologies that have lower capital costs than traditional utility-scale plants.

The objective of DE-FOA-0001994, Next Generation Gasifier Concepts and Components to Advance Modular Coal Gasification, is to competitively solicit and award R&D projects that will develop advanced technology that can implement coal gasification processes into small modular systems. FE seeks projects that will also work toward increasing the efficiency of producing coal syngas for applications in power generation or combined heat and power through process and/or reaction intensification. FE’s gasification programme will support this FOA.

FE’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) will manage the selected projects, which will focus on two areas of interest: 1) next-generation gasifier design and prototype and 2) enabling technologies for gasifiers of the future.

There are several one-time actions an applicant must complete to submit a Full Application in, including to obtain a Dun and Bradstreet Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number; register with the System for Award Management (SAM); register with; and register in to submit questions). Applicants who are not registered with SAM and, should allow at least 44 days to complete these requirements. It is suggested that the process be started as soon as possible.
