Description: The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) intends to issue, on behalf of the Building Technologies Office (BTO), a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled “Connected Communities.” The goal of this planned FOA would be to demonstrate the ability of efficient buildings to interact with the grid to provide demand flexibility. This includes the ability to shift and modulate load in both existing and new communities across diverse climates, geography, building types and grid/regulatory structures, while maintaining (if not enhancing) occupant satisfaction and productivity. This builds on BTO’s current Grid-Interactive Efficient Buildings (GEB) work. Improving the energy efficiency and demand flexibility of buildings alleviates pressure on the electric grid and extends our energy resources. The purpose of this Notice is to provide potential applicants advance notice that the Buildings Technologies Office, on behalf of the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), intends to issue a FOA titled, Connected Communities. NO APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED THROUGH THIS NOTICE. Please do not submit questions or respond to this Notice of Intent. Prospective applicants to the FOA should begin developing partnerships, formulating ideas, and gathering data in anticipation of the issuance of this FOA. It is anticipated that this FOA will be posted to EERE Exchange August 2020.
