The Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), on behalf of the Office of Electricity (OE) is releasing Storage Innovations 2030: Technology Liftoff (SI Liftoff). SI Liftoff will build upon the strategic efforts initiated in the other three pillars of SI 2030 (i.e., Framework, Prize, and Flight Paths), by fostering diverse partnerships of companies to pursue pre-competitive research and development (R&D) projects. Entities will be awarded up to $5 million for projects that (a) create research partnership to bring together two or more technology stakeholders, and (b) partner with a research institution to solve one or more pre-competitive R&D technical challenge. Projects must enable a long-duration capable (10+ hours) energy storage technology with a pathway to $0.05/ kWh Levelized Cost of Storage (LCOS) by 2030. Instructions can be found for this FOA at FedConnect

Modification 000001 is to define what is considered to be a Research Institution under the FOA and to inform prospective applicants of an upcoming informational webinar.
