RFI: Integrated Biorefinery Lessons Learned and Best Practices*

Sponsor:           U.S. Department of Energy - Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

Deadlines:         Final: 7/22/2014

Summary:          The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), within the Department of Energy (DOE), accelerates development and facilitates deployment of energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies.  EERE, through its Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) is seeking public comment on Integrated Biorefinery Lessons Learned and Best Practices. Since 2006, many companies that specialize in converting biomass to fuels and products have taken the next step to build and operate integrated pilot, demonstration, and commercial scale facilities. During the design, financing, and construction of these projects many lessons learned and best practices have been developed. BETO compiles and updates the lesson learned and best practices information from its portfolio of integrated biorefinery projects as they move forward towards completion.

Category:          Clean and Renewable Energy

Keywords:         biorefinery, public comment, best practices, biomass conversion, biofuels

Collaborative Research in Magnetic Fusion Energy Sciences on Long-Pulse International Stellarator Facilities

Sponsor:           U.S. Department of Energy - Office of Science

Deadlines:         Initial: 8/11/2014          Final: 9/22/2014

Summary:          The Office of Fusion Energy Sciences of the Office of Science, U.S. Department of Energy, hereby announces its interest in receiving applications to carry out experimental research in magnetic fusion energy sciences on long-pulse overseas stellarator facilities, namely Wendelstein 7-X (Germany) and the Large Helical Device (LHD - Japan). The research should be related to the planning, execution, and analysis of experiments concerning the topical areas described below. The FES Burning Plasma: Long Pulse portfolio supports U.S researchers who work in collaboration with foreign scientists to explore critical science and technology issues at the frontiers of magnetic fusion research. The three topic areas can be summarized as 1. Exploiting U.S. hardware investments; 2. Understanding compatible core-edge solutions; and 3. Understanding limits and transients.

Category:          Clean and Renewable Energy

Keywords:         magnetic fusion energy, hardware investments, core-edge solutions

DHS S&T Critical Infrastructure Resilience Center of Excellence – Center Lead

Sponsor:           U.S. Department of Homeland Security

Deadlines:         Final: 9/23/2014

Summary:          The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) Office of University Programs (OUP) requests applications from U.S. colleges and universities to serve as a lead institution for a Critical Infrastructure Resilience Center of Excellence (CIRC). The DHS COEs are university consortia that work closely with DHS to conduct research, develop and transition mission-relevant science and technology, and educate the next generation of homeland security technical experts. DHS COEs operate using a unique research management approach where researchers work alongside operational and decision-making personnel to explore opportunities and enhance capabilities. DHS envisions the COEs as long-term trusted academic partners that provide an array of resources to help DHS achieve its missions, and carry out its operations. The new Critical Infrastructure Resilience Center will be a fully-integrated component of the COE network and will take advantage of the network's resources to develop mission-critical research, education, and technology transition programs.

Category:          Miscellaneous

Keywords:         university consortia, lead membership, research, education, technology transition

DHS SDHS S&T Critical Infrastructure Resilience Center of Excellence (CIRC) – Center Partner

Sponsor:           U.S. Department of Homeland Security

Deadlines:         Final: 9/23/2014

Summary:          The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) Office of University Programs (OUP) requests applications from U.S. colleges and universities to serve as a partner institution for a Critical Infrastructure Resilience Center of Excellence (CIRC). DHS may select individual project partners from applications received for either the Center Lead FOA or the Center Partner FOA to the Critical Infrastructure Resilience Center. Principal Investigators that are already Partners under a Center Lead application may not submit the same application under this Partner FOA. The DHS COEs are university consortia that work closely with DHS to conduct research, develop and transition mission-relevant science and technology, and educate the next generation of homeland security technical experts. DHS COEs operate using a unique research management approach where researchers work alongside operational and decision-making personnel to explore opportunities and enhance capabilities. Each COE is led by a U.S. college or university and has multiple partners. The new Critical Infrastructure Resilience Center will be a fully-integrated component of the COE network and will take advantage of the network's resources to develop mission-critical research, education, and technology transition programs.

Category:          Miscellaneous

Keywords:         university consortia, research, education, technology transition
