Request for Information on Broadening the Scope of Energy R&D and Associated Facility Needs at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory's National Wind Technology Center

August 1, 2018

You are here

The National Wind Technology Center (NWTC) is a 305-acre site in Colorado that comprises field test sites, test laboratories, industrial high-bay work areas, machine shops, electronics and instrumentation laboratories, and office areas. While NWTC's initial focus was on wind energy, it has been used to demonstrate and test other energy technologies, and is looking to further expand these large-scale field testing capabilities.

Given recent interest in utilization of the site for testing other technologies, DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy is requesting public input on specific facility and infrastructure investments that would enable expanded energy research and development at the site. Specific areas of interest include: hydrogen fuel cells, advanced manufacturing, solar, grid integration and storage, marine hydrokinetic, hydropower, geothermal, and hybrid energy technologies.

Responses to this RFI must be submitted electronically to NWTC_EERE_RFI@ee.doe.gov no later than 5:00 p.m. ET on August 27th, 2018.
