The objective of this FOA is to solicit and competitively award university-based R&D projects that address and resolve scientific challenges and applied engineering technology issues associated with advancing the performance and efficiency of combustion turbines and turbine-based power cycles, e.g., IGCC/NGCC, sCO2, in fossil fuel power generation.
The FOA will seek to solicit and competitively award laboratory/bench-scale R&D in the following five technical areas of interest (AOIs):
- Pressure Gain Combustion
- Advanced Materials Development for Hot Gas Path Turbine Components
- Advanced Manufacturing Development for Hot Gas Path Turbine Components
- Fundamental Research for Supercritical Carbon Dioxide (sCO2) Power Cycle Development
- Fossil Fuel-Based Power Generation with Large-Scale Energy Storage
Deadline: March 4, 2019
