DOE's Water Power Program has a mission to research, develop, test, evaluate, and demonstrate innovative water power technologies capable of generating renewable, environmentally responsible, and cost-effective electricity from water resources. Included in these activities are technologies and processes to upgrade unit and plant capacity, improve efficiency, and improve the environmental performance of Conventional Hydropower generation. Through this Funding Opportunity Announcement, the Wind and Water Power Program of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is seeking applications for the development, testing, validation, modeling, and interconnection of advanced conventional hydropower systems. This FOA seeks applications in the following Topic Areas: Topic Area 1: Sustainable Small Hydropower; Topic Area 2: Sustainable Pumped Storage Hydropower (PSH); Topic Area 3: Environmental Mitigation Technologies for Conventional Hydropower; and Topic Area 4: Advanced Conventional Hydropower System Testing at a Bureau of Reclamation Facility. Topic Area 4 is jointly funded by the Bureau of Reclamation and Department of Energy.
