This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is being issued by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) to invest in innovative research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) that accelerates the large-scale development and deployment of solar technology to support an equitable transition to a decarbonized electricity system by 2035 and decarbonized energy sector by 2050. Achieving this goal will support the nationwide effort to meet the threat of climate change and ensure that all Americans benefit from the transition to a clean energy economy.
The R&D activities to be funded under this FOA will support the government-wide approach to the climate crisis by driving the innovation that can lead to the deployment of clean energy technologies, which are critical for climate protection.
This funding opportunity focuses on the development and application of solar technologies to improve the resilience of electric power systems and the communities they support. Projects funded under this FOA will focus on community energy resilience. Community resilience can be a comprehensive term that may apply to different critical services such as water, energy, communications, transportation and other types of infrastructure. In the context of this FOA, projects will focus efforts on community energy resilience to investigate the relationship between power systems resilience and community resilience and determine the ability of a community to prepare, recover, and adapt from an event that can cause power or energy disruption.
