DOE Announces Two New Open Funding Opportunities for Commercial Buildings and Solid-State Lighting

Interested applicants can apply to both of these funding opportunities on the EERE Exchange.

 

$9.5 Million Small and Medium Commercial Buildings Funding Opportunity

 

Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) Number:  DE-FOA-0001385

 

The Building Technologies Office (BTO) Commercial Buildings Integration Program has announced the availability of up to $9.5 million for Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) DE-FOA-0001385, “Solutions to Improve the Energy Efficiency of U.S. Small and Medium Commercial Buildings.” DOE seeks to fund eight awards for the scale-up of promising solutions to the market barriers that hinder the growth of energy efficiency in the small and medium commercial building sector, which are less than 100,000 square feet in gross floor area and account for more than 50% of the energy used in the commercial sector. The objective of this funding is to build a path for market-ready solutions to be used at scale across the U.S. to improve building energy efficiency.

$10.5 Million Solid-State Lighting R&D Funding Opportunity

 

Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) Number:  DE-FOA-0001364

 

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced a solid-state lighting (SSL) R&D funding opportunity on October 29, 2015. Under this funding opportunity (DE-FOA-0001364, “Solid-State Lighting Advanced Technology R&D—2016”), a total of up to $10.5 million in funding is directed toward all three existing DOE SSL R&D program areas:

 

  • Core Technology Research—the application of fundamental scientific concepts to SSL technology
  • Product Development—using the knowledge gained from basic or applied research to develop or improve commercially viable SSL materials, devices, or systems
  • U.S. Manufacturing—accelerating SSL technology adoption through manufacturing innovations and improvements that reduce costs and enhance quality and consistency
