Innovative Designs for high-performance Low-cost HVDC Converters (IDEAL HVDC)
U.S Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is issuing, on behalf of the Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO) and Office of Electricity (OE)
The research and development (R&D) activities to be funded under this FOA will support the government-wide approach to the climate crisis by driving the innovation that can lead to the deployment of clean energy technologies, which are critical for climate protection. Specifically, this FOA will invest in R&D to support continued innovation and cost reduction for high-voltage direct current (HVDC) voltage-source converter (VSC) transmission systems. This investment is intended to enable future grid upgrades required to integrate increasing renewable energy generation on to the grid, both onshore and offshore.
Topic Area 1: Innovative Designs for HVDC VSC Technology
Targeted Areas for Innovation Include:
Size & Power Density
Lifespan & Reliability
Domestic Entities: Institutions of higher education; For-profit entities;Nonprofit entities; and State and local governmental entities, and Indian tribe In limited circumstances, EERE may approve a waiver to allow a foreign entity to
participate as a prime recipient or subrecipient.
