DOE: University Turbine Systems Research

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
