Opportunity: Notice of Intent to issue a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) on behalf of DOE's Office of Fossil Energy (FE) entitled "Water Management For Thermal Power Generation".


DE-FOA-0002430 is a Notice of Intent to issue full FOA no. DE-FOA-0002399 entitled “Water Management For Thermal Power Generation”. The Department of Energy (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) intends to issue a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) on behalf of DOE’s Office of Fossil Energy (FE) that will, through the Water Management For Thermal Power Generation FOA, form teams consisting of a fossil asset owner or operator and water treatment technology developer to facilitate the design, construction, and operation of engineering-scale prototypes of water treatment technologies to advance near-term water treatment solutions toward commercial deployment. This FOA, sponsored by FE’s Water Management program will support the reliability, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness of coal, gas, and hydrogen-fueled power generation and the DOE-led Water Security Grand Challenge Goal 3 “Achieve near-zero water impact for new thermoelectric power plants, and significantly lower freshwater use intensity within the existing fleet”. The Energy-Water Nexus, the intersection of our energy economy with water availability and demand, affects nearly every aspect of our lives from energy availability and disruption to water availability for food, drinking, and industrial productivity. In many parts of the US, water scarcity already is a key consideration both for management of current systems as well as for planning of future investments. And water scarcity is expected to increase for the foresable future. In the US, a power generation energy transition is underway driving toward lower carbon intensity technologies. The latest EIA Annual Energy Outlook forcasts growth of electricity from renewable and gas-based power while coal and nuclear are expected to decrease and level off. For the coal and gas plants, they will increasingly pressured to decarbonize further while improving flexibility with increased non-dispatchable renewable generation on the electricit
