Additional Information on Eligibility:
All types of domestic entities including DOE National Laboratories/Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDC) (as defined by EPAct 2005, Section 989) and Non-DOE FFRDC contractors are eligible to apply, as either prime Recipients or sub-recipients /subcontractors except for NETL or other Federal agencies, and nonprofit organizations described in section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 that engaged in lobbying activities after December 31, 1995. Please reference the following website for a listing of eligible FFRDC's http://www.nsf.gov/statistics/ffrdclist/start.cfm.
If a DOE National Laboratory/FFRDC is selected as a prime recipient under this announcement, it is DOE?s intent to award the selection through the Field Work Proposal process.
However, if a project is selected with a DOE National Laboratory/FFRDC sub-recipient/ subcontractor, it is not the intent of the DOE to award that portion through the Field Work Proposal process. Rather, the anticipated approach is a Work for Others (WFO) agreement/subcontract between the recipient and the DOE National Laboratory/FFRDC.
Likewise, if a project is selected with a Non-DOE FFRDC sub-recipient, DOE will not fund that Non-DOE FFRDC through an interagency agreement with the sponsoring agency.
The value of, and funding for, any FFRDC subcontracted/WFO portion of the work shall be included in the award to a successful applicant.
National Energy Technology Laboratory
The Department of Energy?s (DOE), Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is seeking applications that address and assist in reducing multiple barriers to alternative fuel vehicle adoption and use. Overall, this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), issued on behalf of EERE by the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), aims to decrease the nation?s dependence on petroleum and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by accelerating the deployment of alternative fuels. Efforts should focus only on the alternative fuels defined by the Energy Policy Act of 1992, as amended by the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and further augmented by the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007.
The expanded use of alternative fuel vehicles and domestically produced alternative transportation fuels can create and retain jobs, stimulate and support domestic economies, and help protect the environment. The Clean Cities program has identified the following four critical areas that provide significant obstacles to alternative fuel vehicle use: 1) Policies, 2) Barrier Reduction, 3) Safety and Training, and 4) Market Development/Outreach. The U.S. Department of Energy?s Clean Cities program wishes to fund projects that target and remedy these specific obstacles to alternative fuel vehicle adoption and use in local, regional and/or statewide sectors and niche markets.
