DOE - Use of Demand-Side Support for Clean Energy Technologies Deadline 4/1/23

This Request for Information (RFI) is re-issued with a new deadline of April 1, 2023. Organizations and individuals that have previously responded may respond again or revise their previous submission.

This is a RFI issued by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations (OCED). This RFI seeks public input to help inform DOE’s development of demand-side support measures for clean energy technologies. Demand-side support measures include, but are not limited to, advanced market commitments, direct procurement, and guaranteed offtake.

Demand-side support measures represent a potential tool to support DOE’s mission by providing a predictable commercial market for clean energy technologies, and these measures have accelerated commercial scale-up of technologies in energy and other industries, both in the United States and abroad.

There are several types of demand-side support measures for clean energy commercialization that include but may not be limited to:

Direct procurement through a request for proposal or reverse auction;Advanced market commitments; andGuaranteed price floors.

OCED seeks input on the following topics:

Cases where demand-side support measures would be useful in scaling up clean energy technologies; andThe best way for DOE to implement demand-side support measures, were it to elect to do so.

OCED seeks input on these topics from all types of clean energy technology market participants, including:

Suppliers of clean energy products (e.g., clean hydrogen producers, carbon dioxide removal developers, sustainable aviation fuel producers);Consumers of clean energy products (e.g., corporate sustainability programs, corporate and government procurement programs);Investors in clean energy technologies (e.g., project finance investors, debt investors);Not-for-profit organizations (e.g., entities capable of operating demand-side support mechanisms to scale up energy technologies at the direction of the DOE);State, local, and tribal government entities; andOther interested entities (e.g., trade associations, market-clearing organizations).
