DOE Issues Notice of Intent for Funding Opportunity Announcement for University Turbine Systems Research

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy (FE) has issued a Notice of Intent (NOI) for a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) for cost-shared research and development (R&D) projects for U.S. universities to conduct early-stage combustion turbine research.

The objective of the FOA is to fund R&D that addresses and resolves scientific challenges and applied engineering technology issues associated with advancing the performance and efficiency of combustion turbines in combined cycle applications (e.g., integrated gasification combined cycle/natural gas combined cycle) in fossil fuel power generation. The FOA will seek to solicit and competitively award laboratory/bench-scale R&D in the following five technical topic areas:

  1. Pressure Gain Combustion
  2. Advanced Materials Development for Hot Gas Path Turbine Components
  3. Advanced Manufacturing Development for Hot Gas Path Turbine Components
  4. Fundamental Research for Supercritical CO2 Power Cycle Development
  5. Fossil Fuel-Based Power Generation with Large-Scale Energy Storage.

In accordance with 2 CFR 910.126 Competition, eligibility for award is restricted to colleges, universities, or university-affiliated research institutions. The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) will manage the potential projects, which will aim to increase the efficiency of operations and reduce cost and complexity. No applications will be accepted through the NOI, and all the information it contains is subject to change.
