Inventions and Innovation Program (I I): The Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Golden Field Office (GO) is soliciting applications for the Inventions and Innovation (I I) Program. Through financial assistance awards (Grants), DOE intends to provide financial support to fund the development of energy saving technologies under the provisions of Section 14 of the Federal Non-Nuclear Energy Research and Development Act of 1974, Public Law 93-577. Projects that reduce energy consumption and have future commercial markets may be eligible for financial and technical support through this competitive funding opportunity process. The I I Program is seeking applications for energy-saving technologies in the conceptual (Category 1), and developmental (Category 2) stages of development as defined in Appendix D Summary Definitions of Stages of Development. Funds from this Program are restricted to U.S. demonstration sites. If an applicant is a prior Category 1 award recipient applying for a Category 2 grant for the same technology, all research and development activities must be completed with successful test results. A final report for the Category 1 project must be accepted by DOE before the Category 2 application is submitted. The I I Program will require pre-applications. Pre-applications will be evaluated against the published criteria and program policy factors, and only those who submit pre-applications deemed worthwhile and innovative will be eligible to submit full-applications in response to this funding opportunity. Those who submit pre-applications that are not selected will not be eligible to submit a full-application under this funding opportunity. This mandatory pre-application requirement is the result of a program assessment. The mandatory pre-application requirement will better serve applicants and reduce DOE's evaluation costs, thus making more funds available to support additional selected projects. The pre-application screening process will better utilize DOE resources, as the volume and content of the full-applications will be fewer and better targeted to DOE's requirements and needs. All awards under this announcement will have requirements for reporting to DOE. Progress and financial status reports will be required on a quarterly basis. Peer and/or technical review meetings will also be held approximately once per quarter. Also, a detailed final report will be required at the conclusion of the project. Category 1 awards may cover a project period of up to one year. Category 2 awards will be approximately two years. Prior to submitting a pre-application, potential applicants are strongly encouraged to do a self-assessment using the optional Pre-Application Self-Assessment tool located on the I I website at The tool is helpful in assessing whether or not an innovation is a good candidate for I I funding. Fact sheets for projects that have been funded previously can be found at: Innovative technologies that fit within the scope of the EERE mission and programs are of particular interest to I I. Please refer to for additional information on the EERE mission and programs to determine whether or not an innovative technology fits within the scope of the EERE program umbrella. EERE programs of interest to this Funding Opportunity Announcement include: " Biomass Program " Building Technologies Program " Distributed Energy Electric Reliability Program " FreedomCAR Vehicle Technologies Program " Geothermal Technologies Program " Hydrogen, Fuel Cells, Infrastructure Technologies Program " Industrial Technologies Program " Solar Energy Technology Program " Wind Hydropower Technologies Program Interested parties should access the DOE Golden Field Office Home Page at, , and access the announcement in the Industry Interactive Procurement System (IIPS) web site by clicking on the Access link. The Golden Home Page also provides instructions on registering and submitting applications in IIPS. The Announcement can also be obtained directly through IIPS at by browsing opportunities by Contracting Activity and selecting the Golden Field Office folder.
