NETL Issues Request for Information for Energy Storage for Fossil Fuel Energy Systems

NETL has issued a Request for Information (RFI) for energy storage opportunities and research needs that could lead to advances in energy storage technologies. Areas of interest include fossil-fueled electricity generating units, fossil-fueled poly-generation facilities and suitable fossil-fueled industrial applications. 

Advances in storage technology capable of improving the overall performance, reliability, and flexibility of these plants will enable our nation to continue to extract maximum economic value from its fossil-fueled energy system assets. More specifically, FE is interested in gathering information relevant to the three following technical areas:

  1. Energy Storage Technologies for improving existing fossil-fueled power plant operation flexibility.
  2. Energy Storage Technologies for new flexible power plants.
  3. Fossil Energy Systems Platforms beyond electric power — industrial, distributed generation, poly-generation, waste heat recovery and other innovative non-traditional technology concepts.

DOE is seeking information from stakeholders such as fossil-fueled power plant owners, operators, equipment manufacturers, architect-engineers and others. This is solely a request for information and is not a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). DOE is not accepting applications to this RFI.

The RFI is posted as DE-FOA-0002209. To review the RFI, please click here 

Responses must be submitted at the following e-mail address:, with the subject line “DE-FOA-0002209 – RFI” no later than 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time on December 16, 2019.

The Office of Fossil Energy funds research, development and demonstration projects to reduce the risk and cost of advanced carbon technologies and further the sustainable use of the nation’s fossil resources.
