Title Due Date Maximum Award Amount Description
Assisting Federal Facilities with Energy Conservation Technologies (AFFECT) 2022 Appropriations $2,000,000.00

The Energy Policy Act of 19921 authorized the Secretary of Energy to establish a fund with the stated purpose of providing competitive grants to federal agencies to assist them in meeting the energy and water conservation requirements of the National Energy Conservation Policy Act (NECPA), 42 U.S.C. 8253 (a)-(b). Through this authority, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) created the Assisting Federal Facilities with Energy Conservation Technologies (AFFECT) program to provide direct funding to federal agencies for the development of capital projects to initiate, supplement, improve or otherwise increase the viability and deployment of widespread energy efficiency, renewable energy, climate change mitigation and adaptation-resilience technology at U.S. federal government-owned facilities. Pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 8256 (b) (3), FEMP will make selections and awards through a competitive process detailed in the Federal Agency Call (FAC). FEMP will be seeking to make awards that support achievement of the Administration’s goals for federal leadership in clean energy, climate, environmental justice and equity as described in Executive Order (E.O.) 14057, Catalyzing America’s Clean Energy Economy Through Federal Sustainability, E.O. 14008, Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad, and section 543 of the National Energy Conservation Policy Act (Pub. L. 95-619), as amended through the Energy Act of 2020 (Pub. L. 117-58; EA2020), codified at 42 U.S.C. 8253. Applications are sought from federal agencies for technical solutions that are in alignment with three Topic Areas: Topic Area 1: Projects Under Development Facing Reductions in Scope Due to Adverse Changes in Fiscal/Economic Conditions. Topic Area 2: Load Management Projects (Energy Performance Contracts) Topic Area 3: Load Management Projects (Other Procurement Mechanisms) The full FAC is posted on the EERE Exchange website at https://eere-exchange.energy.gov. To apply to this FAC, Applicants must register with and submit application materials through EERE Exchange, EERE’s online application portal.

Request for Information Carbon Storage Technology Operations & Research CarbonSTORE $2.00

Request for Information Carbon Storage Technology Operations and Research CarbonSTORE This is soley a request for information and not a Funding Opportunity Announcement. The Department of Energy is not accepting applications to this Request for Information. The Carbon Capture and Storage provisions of the Bilateral Infrastructure Law represent the nation’s commitment to demonstrating at commercial scale the types of CCS infrastructure needed to help decarbonize the US economy to net zero CO2 emissions by 2050. This unprecedented investment in CCS deployment means DOE FECM needs to accelerate technology development through field tests in carbon storage settings. FECM is seeking public input on the best approaches and options for developing field laboratories, whether at Carbon Storage Assurance Facility Enterprise CarbonSAFE initiative project sites or other sites, to catalyze the rapid development and field testing of technologies that would support a safe and affordable CCS industry.
