The purpose of this modification 001 to DE-FOA-0000104, Baseload Concentrating Solar Power Generation, is to: 1. Update the header labels in Section II, F. Period of Performance, on page 14, to clarify the types of activities in each Phase; 2. Update the header labels in Section III, B. Cost Sharing, on page 16, to clarify the types of activities in each Phase; 3. Update Section VIII, G. Notice of Right to Request Patent Waiver, on pages 37-38, to discuss class waivers. All other parts of the FOA remain unchanged. The areas which have changed are highlighted within the Funding Opportunity Announcement.
The objective of this Announcement is to develop and evaluate Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) components and/or systems that will lead to solar power plants with a capacity to generate electricity at costs competitive to fossil-fired generators. The announcement includes two topic areas: 1. Research and development of concepts and components that can be part of a CSP baseload system and 2. Evaluation of the feasibility of a complete CSP baseload system and development of a prototype system that can be implemented in the field. The projects will be conducted in three phases. Phase 1 will involve conducting system feasibility and preliminary design work. Phase 2 will involve performing engineering design. Phase 3 will focus on detailed engineering design and prototype testing/evaluation.
