ESTCP announces funding opportunity for environmental and installation energy technologies

The Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) is seeking proposals for demonstrations of innovative environmental and installation energy technologies as candidates for funding beginning in FY 2023. The solicitation requests pre-proposals via Calls for Proposals to Federal organizations and via a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for academic and private sector organizations. Pre-proposals are due March 10, 2022 by 2 p.m. ET.

The Department of Defense (DoD), through the ESTCP, supports the demonstration of technologies that address priority DoD environmental and installation energy requirements. The goal of ESTCP is to promote the transfer of innovative technologies through demonstrations that collect the data needed for regulatory and DoD end-user acceptance. Projects conduct formal demonstrations at DoD facilities and sites in operational settings to document and validate improved performance and cost savings.

Detailed instructions are on the ESTCP website under Funding Opportunities: https://serdp-estcp.org/Funding-Opportunities/ESTCP-Solicitations. In addition, ESTCP Director Dr. Herb Nelson, Deputy Director Dr. Andrea Leeson, and the ESTCP Program Managers will conduct an online seminar “ESTCP Funding Opportunities” on January 20, 2022, from 1 - 2:30 p.m. ET. This briefing will offer valuable information for those interested in new ESTCP funding opportunities. During the online seminar, participants may ask questions about the funding process, the current ESTCP solicitation, and the proposal submission process. Pre-registration for this webinar is required: https://us06web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_DtU4jn45TfmNguHFXJ11eA
