Description:

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy
Efficiency and Renewable
Energy (EERE) is seeking applications for cost-shared research and
development
of technologies which will reduce energy consumption, reduce environmental
impacts and enhance economic competitiveness of the domestic glass
industry.
The research is to address the topics listed below, derived from research
priorities identified by the glass industry in the Glass Industry
Technology
Roadmap, (available at the following URL:
http://www.eere.energy.gov/industry/glass/pdfs/glass2002roadmap.pdf.).
Potential benefits of the research must be realized in manufacturing
processes,
not in end-use applications. Proposals for pure glass product development
research will not be considered. Approximately $400,000 in fiscal year
2005
federal funds is estimated to be available to fund awards. DOE anticipates

making three to five Awards, each with a duration of four years or less.
DOE
anticipates these Awards will include one or two larger awards up to
approximately $3,000,000 targeting Category A and one to three smaller
awards
totaling up to approximately $1,000,000 for Category B. Each Application
should note to which Category it is being responsive. The grants will be
awarded in accordance with DOE Financial Assistance regulations, Title 10
of
the Code of Federal Regulations, 10 CFR 600. Award of a grant under this
Funding Opportunity Announcement does not commit the Government to fund any

follow-on research. Successful applicants will be required to submit
quarterly
and final reports to DOE.
Proposed projects are required to yield projected energy savings of at
least
one trillion Btu annually by 2020, and ideally should be several times this

amount. The energy savings provided shall be calculated using the Energy
Savings Estimator tool as noted in Criterion 2 of the Merit Review
Criteria.
All proposals shall include go/no-go decision points with the first
decision
point occurring within approximately 12 months after the project starts.
Budget
periods should be structured around major milestones and go/no-go decision
points at approximately one year intervals for the remainder of the
project.
These decision points should be identified when addressing the Project
Management Plan, Team Capabilities, and Commercialization Plan criterion.
The
project must demonstrate to DOE that it has met the identified objectives
tied
to the go/no-go decision point, has completed the objectives in compliance
with
a mutually agreed upon management plan, has submitted timely and
informative
reports, and identifies the objectives planned for the new budget period
before
it can proceed to the next budget period. DOE will use these go/no-go
decision
points to determine if the project will continue to the next budget period
based on technical progress and funding availability. DOE may appoint a
peer
review or technical review panel to assist in evaluating the technical
progress
of each project and make recommendations to DOE regarding the project.
30% non-federal cost share is the minimum requirement for Research and
Development projects. This cost share will provide evidence of strong
industrial interest in the technology. The required cost share of
thirty-percent is to optimize and better leverage Program Funds.
50% non-federal cost share is the minimum required for validation and
demonstration projects. Validation and demonstration of latter-stage
technologies is defined as full or commercial scale testing of a process
technology beyond pilot-scale.

Cost share may be provided as cash or as in-kind contributions. Cost share
may
not be derived from other federal funding, including federal funding of a
national laboratory through another contract vehicle (see 10 CFR 600.123
and 10
CFR 600.127).

Due to the limited amount of anticipated future fiscal year funding, it is
anticipated that some projects will not be continued after the end of each
budget period, notwithstanding the technical progress made during that
budget
period, even if all anticipated objectives have been met or
exceeded.
