The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) provides direct funding to federal agencies through the Assisting Federal Facilities with Energy Conservation Technologies (AFFECT) federal agency call. AFFECT provides grants for the development of energy and water efficiency projects and processes at U.S. federal government-owned facilities.
AFFECT 2019 Funding Opportunity
On July 22, 2019, FEMP issued a federal agency call (FAC) on the EERE Exchange titled "Assisting Federal Facilities with Energy Conservation Technologies (AFFECT) 2019" (DE-FOA-0002143). AFFECT 2019 built on FEMP’s prior AFFECT grant program efforts to facilitate or promote the wider adoption of energy and water efficiency projects and processes at all federal facilities, and was revised to provide federal agencies a more streamlined and efficient application, review, and selection process.
The AFFECT 2019 FAC provided direct funding to U.S. federal agencies for applications that:
- Promote the use of external, leveraged funding to advance energy affordability and resilience
- Integrate technologies that advance the resilience and mission critical functionality of a site that are not part of a leveraged project
- Support the deployment of an integrated energy management system that allows for standardized and streamlined practices that save energy and promote the safety, health and operations of facilities.
Applicants were asked to show how the proposed project results are conducive to broader adoption by impacting the direction, strategy, and thinking of the agency to engage in similar efforts at other federal facilities.
