External Funding Opportunities

Attention faculty: DOD funding available for demonstrations of environmental and installation energy and water technologies

The Department of Defense (DoD), through the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program(ESTCP), supports the demonstration of technologies that address priority DoD environmental and installation energy and water requirements.  The goal of ESTCP is to promote the transfer of innovative technologies through demonstrations that collect the data needed for regulatory and DoD end-user acceptance.  Projects conduct formal demonstrations at DoD facilities and sites in operational settings to document and validate improved performance and cost savings.

In two separate solicitations, ESTCP is seeking proposals for demonstrations of innovative Environmentaland Installation Energy and Water technologies as candidates for funding beginning in FY 2017.  The solicitations request pre-proposals via Calls for Proposals to Federal organizations and via a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for Private Sector organizations.  Pre-proposals are due April 5, 2016 by 2 p.m. ET.

Detailed instructions are on the ESTCP website under Funding Opportunities(link is external).

DoD organizations (Service and Defense Agencies) may submit pre-proposals for demonstrations of innovative technologies in the following topic areas:

  • Environmental Restoration
  • Munitions Response in Underwater Environments
  • Resource Conservation
  • Weapons Systems and Platforms
  • Energy Efficiency for Military Buildings
  • Improved Water Use for Military Industrial Operations

The Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) and Call for Proposals (CFP) for Federal Organizations Outside DoD are seeking pre-proposals for technologies in the following topic areas: 

  • In Situ Management of Contaminated Aquatic Sediments
  • Reduce Source Loading of Munitions Constituents
  • Detection, Classification, and Remediation of Military Munitions in Underwater Environments
  • Fugitive Dust Technologies, Methodologies, and Tools for Department of Defense Installations
  • Ecosystem Process Model Intercomparison
  • Energy Efficiency for Military Buildings
  • Improved Water Use for Military Industrial Operations
