Opportunity: Midsize Turbine Development Projects


This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is in response to the Wind and Water Power Program's FY10 budget request to Congress for a new collaborative effort to develop midsize wind turbines. This will be accomplished through the direct approach of awarding grants to domestic entities or partnerships which presently have, at minimum, existing detailed design plan specifications and a developed prototype for a midsize turbine. Applicants will be assessed on how well they demonstrate the potential to meet the goals and objective of the FOA and the evaluation criteria as defined in Section V, Application Review Guidelines. The following key points should be addressed: (1) midsize wind turbine technology advancements through innovation. (2) Value engineering to produce a cost competitive product for both the domestic and global markets. A value engineered wind turbine goes through an organized process to increase value by examining systems, facilities, procedures, and supplies to reduce costs without jeopardizing efficiency, reliability, or maintainability. (3) U.S. job creation and wind industry growth through the engagement of U.S. manufactures and supply chain vendors, and (4) a detailed plan for the accelerated product development and testing to reach commercial readiness. Proposed activities to achieve commercial readiness may involve design for manufacturing, system performance optimization, and performance and reliability testing for certification.
