This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is focused on developing MV integrated drive systems that leverage the benefits of state of the art power electronics (i.e., wide band gap devices) with energy efficient, high speed, direct drive, megawatt (MW) class electric motors for efficiency and power density improvements in three primary areas: (1) chemical and petroleum refining industries; (2) natural gas infrastructure; and (3) general industrial applications. These application areas represent a significant number of motor installations, a large amount of electrical energy consumption, and significant opportunities for U.S. technology and manufacturing competitiveness.
An Informational Webinar will be held Wednesday, April 1, 2015 at 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. EDT. Standard application questions regarding the EERE Office and FOA procedures will be discussed. See the full text of the Funding Opportunity Announcement for registration details.
