DOE: Critical Components for Coal FIRST Power Plants of the Future

The Department of Energy’s Coal FIRST (Flexible, Innovative, Resilient, Small, Transformative) initiative will develop the coal plant of the future needed to provide secure, stable, and reliable power. Coal FIRST plants will be capable of flexible operation to meet the needs of the grid; use innovative and cutting-edge components that improve efficiency and reduce emissions; provide resilient power to Americans; be small compared to today’s conventional utility-scale coal power plants; and transform how coal power plant technologies are designed and manufactured. This FAO is focused on the development of critical components that will support potential designs for coal-based power plants of the future.

Deadline: March 30, 2020
