The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE's) Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) develops industrially relevant, transformative, and revolutionary bioenergy technologies to enable sustainable, domestically produced biofuels, bioproducts, and biopower that can improve our energy security, reliability and resilience while creating economic opportunities across the country.

BETO selects research and development projects through open and competitive procurements called Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOA) and encourages collaborative partnerships among:

  • Industry
  • Universities
  • National laboratories
  • Federal, state, and local governments
  • Non-government agencies.

This section on the BETO website offers information and additional resources about current and past funding opportunities, requests for information, and links to related opportunities from other DOE offices and federal organizations.

EERE Program Information Center to Exchange Transition

BETO is committed to investing in the best and brightest ideas from our research and development community. Our commitment to this mission is reflected in our ongoing efforts to ensure that the public can easily find and apply to funding opportunities with the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE).

Recently, users have experienced intermittent performance issues in the EERE Program Information Center and EERE is working diligently to resolve them. To continue investigating the performance issues without impacting the ability for applicants to respond to opportunities, we have decided to temporarily move all EERE application submissions activities back to the EERE Funding Opportunity Exchange (Exchange). We anticipate using Exchange for submissions through September 30, 2021.

For additional information about this transition, please review these Frequently Asked Questions.
