DOE (energywerx) Capacity Building for Repurposing Energy Assets – Due 11/6

Opportunity Title:

Capacity Building for Repurposing Energy Assets

Funder/Agency:

DOE; Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management; ENERGYWERX


Opportunity Number:

EWX-2023-107

Description:

On August 25, 2023, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) announced up to $3.5 million in federal funding available to help local communities across the country create a roadmap toward repurposing existing energy assets. The Capacity Building for Repurposing Energy Assets initiative will assist communities where a significant portion of their local economy has historically been supported by energy assets, such as coal, oil, and/or natural gas power facilities and accompanying equipment and infrastructure. The initiative will help these communities build technical capacity and develop a workforce necessary to help revitalize energy systems, address environmental impacts, and tackle challenges associated with energy assets that have been retired, or are slated for retirement.


The retirement of energy assets means that energy transmission and distribution infrastructure, electrical interconnection equipment, site and permitting licenses, and other related infrastructure may be available for alternative uses. At the same time, these communities must find opportunities to replace lost revenues and provide jobs for highly specialized workers. The Capacity Building for Repurposing Energy Assets initiative will provide these communities with access to planning and other resources they need to develop a roadmap for a clean energy future—giving them the chance to be active participants in crafting their own economic future.
