NSF RFP for Energy for Sustainability
NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION
TITLE: Energy for Sustainability
DUE: Window 15 January – 19 February 2013
AWARD: The duration of unsolicited awards is typically three years. The average annual award size for the program is $100,000. Proposals requesting a substantially higher amount than this, without prior consultation with the Program Director, may be returned without review
SCOPE: This program supports fundamental research and education that will enable innovative processes for the sustainable production of electricity and transportation fuels. Processes for sustainable energy production must be environmentally benign, reduce greenhouse gas production, and utilize renewable resources. Current interest areas in sustainable energy technologies are highlighted below. Following are ares of interest:
– Biomass Conversion, Biofuels & Bioenergy
– Photovoltaic Solar Energy
– Wind Energy
– Advanced Batteries for Transportation.
Fuel-cell projects previously submitted to this program should be directed to other CBET programs, depending on emphasis: electrocatalysis (Catalysis and Biocatalysis); membranes (Separations and Bioseparations); systems (Process and Reaction Engineering). Innovative proposals outside of these specific interest areas can be considered. However, prior to submission, it is recommended that the PI contact the Program Director to avoid the possibility of the proposal being returned without review.
NOTE: For proposals involving any aspect of chemistry, including but not limited to biochemistry or physical chemistry, consider making proposal submissions to this program (7644) with the Proposal Title as: ‘SusChEM: Name of Your Proposal’. See SusChEM – New NSF Emphasis Area. Likewise for proposals involving sustainable engineering.
