Workshop: Applying for U.S. Department of Energy Funding: From Application to Award Management

With the advent of more than $500 million in grants available to the waterpower industry, there’s a significant need for learning how to effectively write grants. What are the tips and tricks? How to adequately meet specific requirements in grant applications?

Once grants are awarded, the grantees needs to comply with all aspects of the grants. How to ensure you are meeting all these requirements?The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (also known as the Infrastructure and Investment Jobs Act, IIJA) provided $62 billion for U.S. Department of Energy clean energy programs, including several programs that companies and organizations working in the hydropower and marine energy sectors will be able to apply into. Additionally, Congress provided record-level annual appropriations to DOE’s Water Power Technologies Office (WPTO), which increased the available funding for water power RDD&D specifically.

As such, there has never been a better time to learn about funding opportunity announcements (FOAs), a key mechanism used by DOE to provide funding for research, development, demonstration, and deployment (RDD&D) projects.

You might ask yourself:
— Where do I find FOAs?
— How will my proposal be evaluated?
— What is the difference between a concept paper and a full application?
— Once awarded, how do I successfully manage my project and comply with DOE requirements?

You can get answers to these questions and more during this fast-paced workshop, brought to you by the NHA Hydro Academy..
