You read correct! You can now head over to the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) page on the DOE-Office of Science web site and learn more about the topics to be released in the April 3 program funding opportunity announcement (FOA). Topics include:

  • Advanced manufacturing
  • Biomass
  • Buildings
  • Hydrogen and fuel cell technologies
  • Solar
  • Vehicles
  • Water
  • Wind

The Building Technologies Program (BTP) is seeking specific technologies within the Buildings topic, that have the potential to contribute to a 50% reduction in energy demand by residential and commercial buildings at less than the cost of the energy saved (800 trillion BTUs in annual savings by 2020; 3,000 in 2030). Those technology areas include:

  • Solid state lighting devices and packages
  • Cold climate air source heat pumps
  • High COP electric water heater
  • GSHP loop cost reduction
  • Fast payback solar water heaters
  • Building Envelope Materials
  • Building controls
  • Commercial building power meters

Download the informational release for more information on this topic and others in the upcoming FOA.
