Today, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) announced up to $3 million in funding for four national public power associations to help increase regional and state-level engagement in DOE’s emerging carbon management work and advance energy storage technologies at U.S. power generation facilities. The cooperative agreements issued with these awards will support the development of tools, educational resources and training in long-term planning and policy analysis to improve the conditions of frontline communities impacted by the legacy of fossil fuel use and support a healthy transition to a clean energy economy.
DOE’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) will serve as the contracting authority for the cooperative agreements and will manage the following awards:
FECM funds research, development, demonstration and deployment projects to decarbonize power generation and industrial sources, to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and to mitigate the environmental impacts of fossil fuel use.
