Indian Energy Archived Funding Opportunities

DE-FOA-0001021: Deployment of Clean Energy and Energy Efficiency on Indian Lands

The Funding Opportunity Anonuncement (Number DE-FOA-0001021) indicated EERE anticipated notifying applicants selected for negotiation of award by January 9, 2015 and promptly notify in writing each applicant whose application has not been selected for award. Even though selections were anticipated Janaury 9, 20015, none have been made. We are working toward an announcement as quickly as possible, however we do not have a specific date for the announcement of the selections at this time.  Once selections have been made, however, all applicants will be notified of the status of their application.

The purpose of modification 0004 is to correct grammatical errors on Page 13, Sections 4(b), 4(d) and 4(e).

 

The purpose of modification 0003 is to further update the “Energy Saved Template – DE-FOA-0001021” which is posted in Exchange under Required Application Documents to fix all the errors in the spreadsheet.  There are no changes to the FOA document.

The purpose of modification 0002 is to update the “Energy Saved Template – DE-FOA-0001021” which is posted in Exchange under Required Application Documents to fix an error in the spreadsheet.  There are no changes to the FOA document.

The purposes of modification 0001 are to:

1. Modify the FOA to omit the words “natural gas” in the description of clean energy systems as follows:

Clean energy systems (renewable energy or natural gas combined heat and power systems).

Note that this correction does not change the definition of a clean energy system.  It only clarifies that eligible combined heat and power systems may be fueled by either renewable energy resources or natural gas.

2. Modify the FOA by adding the following on page 5:

The minimum system size (10 kW rated capacity or equivalent) may be for a single individual clean energy system or the aggregate of multiple clean energy systems and the 15% displacement of energy may be for either a single Tribally-owned building or the cumulative energy displaced in multiple buildings.  

3. Modify the FOA by adding the following on page 7:

The minimum system size (10 kW rated capacity or equivalent) may be for a single individual clean energy system or the aggregate of multiple clean energy systems and the 20% reduction in the total of all energy may be for either a single Tribally-owned building or the cumulative energy reduction in multiple buildings.  

4. Modify the FOA by adding the following on page 8:

The minimum system size (50 kW rated capacity or equivalent) may be for a single individual clean energy system or the aggregate of multiple clean energy systems.  

5. Modify the description of Example #1 in Appendix C, Calculating Energy Savings (page 72) from:

1)      Example #1: Renewable Power System: Displaced energy using a small wind system

to:

1)      Example #1: Renewable Power and Heating Systems: Displaced energy using a photovoltaic power and biomass heating system

6. Modify the FOA by deleting the words “and C” on page 4 as follows:

All cost share must come from non-Federal sources unless otherwise allowed by law (see Section III.B and Appendices B and C).

7. Modify the FOA by correcting the following references:

a. On the bottom of page 8 change Section IV.C.11 to Section IV.C.12
b. On page 16, change Section IV.C.11 to Section IV.C.12
c. On page 17, third paragraph change Section IV.C.18 to Section IV.C.20
d. On page 17, third paragraph change Section IV.C.17 to Section IV.C.19
e. On page 17, fifth paragraph change Section IV.C.18 to Section IV.C.20
f. On page 39, change Section IV.C.20 to Section IV.C.21

 

Under this FOA, EERE is soliciting Applications from Indian Tribes, Tribal Energy Resource Development Organizations and Tribal Consortia to: (1) install clean energy and energy efficiency retrofits projects for tribal buildings; and (2) to deploy clean energy systems on a community-scale on Indian Lands (see Section III.A for eligibility definitions).

The eXCHANGE system is currently designed to enforce hard deadlines for Concept Paper and Full Application submissions. The APPLY and SUBMIT buttons automatically disable at the defined submission deadlines. The intention of this design is to consistently enforce a standard deadline for all applicants.

Applicants that experience issues with submissions PRIOR to the FOA Deadline:

In the event that an Applicant experiences technical difficulties with a submission, the Applicant should contact the eXCHANGE helpdesk for assistance (EERE-ExchangeSupport@hq.doe.gov).
