Remote Alaskan Communities Energy Efficiency Competition: This is a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for Phase 3 of the Remote Alaska Communities Energy Efficiency (RACEE) Competition. This Funding Opportunity Announcement is open to the 13 Community Efficiency Champion (CEC) communities that received technical assistance through Phase 2 of the RACEE Competition through the Notice of Technical Assistance DE-FOA-0001479.
DOE is seeking applications from these 13 CEC communities to implement their energy efficiency plans with one or more energy strategies to help these communities meet their pledge of a 15 percent energy use reduction by 2020. Communities can achieve the total pledged energy reduction by implementing energy efficiency and renewable integration projects, in any combination of size and number- so long as the applications demonstrate through feasibility, economic, engineering and other analysis that with implementation the community will make substantial progress toward the pledged 15 percent energy use reduction.
The RACEE Competition is focused on developing and implementing effective, reliable solutions that fit the community’s needs, not necessarily deploying new technology for the sake of the technology’s innovative qualities. For the purposes of this FOA, innovation is based on the process and potential for transformative and sustainable impacts on how the community currently uses energy, and/or the potential for replication in other Alaskan communities. For example, communities that develop and implement effective strategies not currently in practice, strategies that engage the entire community to implement the energy plan, demand or supply-side projects to achieve the pledged targets, could be considered innovative.

The full Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is posted on the EERE eXCHANGE website at Applications must be submitted through the EERE eXCHANGE website to be considered for award. The applicant must first register and create an account on the EERE eXCHANGE website. A User Guide for the EERE eXCHANGE can be found on the EERE website after logging in to the system. Information on where to submit questions regarding the content of the announcement and where to submit questions regarding submission of applications is found in the full FOA posted on the EERE eXCHANGE website.
