The DOE Office of Basic Energy Sciences (BES) announced a Funding Opportunity Announcement for Energy Frontier Research Centers (EFRCs). The competition will be open both to proposals from existing EFRCs seeking renewal of support and to proposals from institutions seeking to establish new EFRCs under the program. Universities, national laboratories, nonprofit organizations, and private firms are eligible to compete and are encouraged to form multi-disciplinary research teams that may include partnerships with other institutions. Selection will be based on a rigorous peer review process. Research supported by this initiative will provide fundamental understanding to enable future advances in energy production and use. When making selections, DOE will emphasize emerging science priorities that have been highlighted in recent workshops, including quantum materials, catalysis science, synthesis science, instrumentation science, next-generation energy storage, future nuclear energy, and energy-water issues.
Awards are expected to range from $2 million per year to $4 million per year per center for each of four fiscal years. Total funding for the new investment, pending Congressional appropriations, is expected to be up to $99 million per year for the four-year awards.
