Air Emissons and Energy Initiative: Maritime Administration Vessel Emissions Reduction Cooperative AgreementsRequest for ProposalsAction: In this Request for Proposals (RFP) the Maritime Administration Office of Environment is soliciting proposals for projects that demonstrate criteria pollutant emissions or carbon emissions reductions from marine vessels through repowering, re-engining or installation of other pollution reduction technologies, or the use of alternative fuel/energy. Background: Over the past several years, the Maritime Administration (MARAD) has been partnering with other government agencies, industry, and academia on efforts to reduce vessel and port air emissions and greenhouse gases as well as support the use of alternative fuels and energy sources. Several MARAD efforts are underway to address emissions reductions, specifically through development of planning and modeling tools and in-situ testing of alternative fuels. MARAD recognizes the limited Federal funding opportunities specific to the maritime sector for emission reduction projects and will enter into up to three cooperative agreements with funding to assist in offsetting costs. The total amount of funding under the RFP will be $1,500,000.MARAD is seeking to provide cost share funding through cooperative agreements for US-flagged vessels that operate on inland or coastal waterways. Eligible applicants include vessel owners, operators, or sponsors. Awardees must demonstrate a reduction of emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulfur oxides (SOx), particulate matter (PM), or carbon through an approved emissions testing scheme. Data collected under the cooperative agreement, including that related to costs, emissions, and fuel consumption must be made available to MARAD and can be used publically. Shore side equipment upgrade or shore power projects are not eligible for funding. MARAD will use the results and data to support further air emissions reduction research and demonstration projects and to demonstrate the public benefit of future incentives to improve vessel related environmental stewardship. Projects that will be funded under the RFP include engine repowers, retrofits, the use of alternative fuels, or the use of alternative technologies such as hybrid engines and other emissions reduction technologies. MARAD will not fund more than 75% of the total cost of the project. MARAD strongly encourages collaboration among private, public, and academic organizations. Successful proposals must include a detailed description of the project that provides:-Vessel class-Engine type and size-Operation specifics and area (including ports serviced, waterway used, frequency of operation, cargo carried)-Pre and post award emissions reduction data for criteria pollutants and/or carbon-Detailed cost share analysis -Pre and post fuel use data-Cost data. Proposals are limited to 15 pages. Successful recipients should demonstrate the ability to partner on the project and identify how partnering resources will be used. Recipients should demonstrate an approach to verify emission reductions. Post award reporting and data requirements will be negotiated in the awardee's Cooperative Agreement. The face page of the proposals submitted must be on SF-Form 424. Proposals should be submitted by email to:
