Call for Projects
AFFECT FOA Webinar
FEMP hosted a 60-minute informational webinar and question and answer session on the AFFECT FOA on November 12, 2013. Review the webinar slides and transcript.
The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) issues calls for projects surrounding energy efficiency, renewable energy, and water conservation.
On November 5, 2013, FEMP issued a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) on EERE Exchange titled "Assisting Federal Facilities with Energy Conservation Technologies (AFFECT)" DE-FOA-0000901. The release of the FOA follows the July 9, 2013, issuance of a notice of intent.
AFFECT will provide grants for the development of capital projects to increase the energy efficiency and renewable energy investments at Federal agency facilities.
Only U.S. Federal agencies, sub-agencies, and national laboratory contractors are eligible to apply, and only Federal government-owned facilities are eligible.
The funding level per award is up to $1 million.
Agencies are expected to significantly leverage FOA funds using agency‐appropriated funds or alternative project financing mechanisms, such as energy savings performance contracts, utility energy service contracts, or on-site renewable power purchase agreements to complete the projects.
All projects should lend themselves to follow‐on efforts at additional Federal sites.
Projects must demonstrate life cycle cost effectiveness per 10 CFR 436, Subpart A.
