The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Fossil Energy (FE) is announcing selections of seven projects to receive $5.4 million in federal funding for university-based research and development under funding opportunity announcement (FOA) DE-FOA-0001993, University Turbine Systems Research (UTSR).

The projects will address and resolve scientific challenges and applied-engineering technology issues associated with advancing the performance and efficiency of combustion turbines and turbine-based power cycles in fossil fuel power generation. DOE selected these projects as part of the University Turbine Systems Research program, which manages a research, development, and demonstration portfolio designed to remove environmental concerns over the future use of fossil fuels by developing revolutionary, near-zero-emission advanced turbines technologies.

The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) will manage the projects, which fall under five areas of interest. Read descriptions of the projects here.

The Office of Fossil Energy funds research and development projects to reduce the risk and cost of advanced fossil energy technologies and further the sustainable use of the Nation’s fossil resources.
