The purpose of this FOA is to move EERE toward one of its goals to improve knowledge and to promote acceleration of market adoption of renewable energy (RE) technologies. This FOA supports implementation of the Recovery Act by creating jobs, promoting economic recovery, and investing in renewable energy infrastructure. Projects should address the technical, economic, and policy barriers to implementing a combination of renewable energy technologies into one integrated solution for a community to reduce its carbon footprint. Projects should support and enable the deployment goals across the portfolio of EEREs renewable energy programs, with the intent of creating examples that can be further replicated by other communities, nationally and internationally.
Eligible renewable energy technologies for purposes of this FOA include but are not limited to, electric or thermal energy generated from solar, wind, biomass, landfill gas, ocean (including tidal, wave, current, and thermal), geothermal, or new hydroelectric generation capacity achieved from increased efficiency or additions of new capacity at an existing hydroelectric project, as defined in EPAct 2005.
