DOE Flexible and Innovative Transformer Technologies (FITT) Program – Due 04/12/24

Opportunity Title:

Flexible and Innovative Transformer Technologies (FITT)



Department of Energy (DOE), National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL)


Opportunity Number:




The objective of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to stimulate innovative designs, prototypes, and field demonstration exercises of advanced distribution and/or power transformers (e.g., flexible, modular, scalable, hybrid, and solid-state transformers) that can be readily utilized across a range of distribution to transmission scale applications.

Proposals must be able to demonstrate a process for evaluating the performance and extrapolating results to the targeted power and voltage ratings of the final design demonstrating high efficiency, variable/controllable impedance, and the ability to accommodate a range of high-side and low-side voltages.

 This FOA is divided into two Areas of Interest:

(1) RD&D for Distribution Transformers

Distribution Transformers are transformers used for transferring electrical energy from a primary distribution circuit to a secondary distribution circuit or consumer’s service circuit.

(2) RD&D for Power Transformers

Power Transformers are transformers that transfer electric energy in any part of the circuit between the generator and the distribution primary circuits.



  1. Institutions of higher education;

  2. For-profit entities;
