DOE Seeks Applications for Housing Research (6/26/07)

The DOE is issuing a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) that will make available up to $40 million to fund research applications to change the way American homes consume energy.

U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Samuel W. Bodman recently announced that the DOE is issuing a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) that will make available up to $40 million to fund research applications to fundamentally change the way American homes consume energy. Awards made under this FOA would support research, development and deployment of technologies that will, on average, reduce new home energy use by 30-90%.

The results of this effort will help advance President Bush’s Advanced Energy Initiative, which aims to change the way we power our cars, homes and businesses. Increased energy efficiency and diversification of clean energy sources is critical to securing our energy future. Using a systems engineering approach, this research seeks to provide new energy-efficient products to the market, incorporate innovations into home design, cut construction time, limit waste and improve builder productivity.

The FOA is part of the DOE’s Building America Project. Visit www.eere.energy.gov/buildings/building_america/ for more information.
