The U.S Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is issuing, on behalf of the Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) and Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO), this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). Projects awarded under this FOA will be funded, in whole or in part, with funds appropriated by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, Public Law 117-58,1 also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL).

The Systems Integration Solar and Wind Grid Services and Reliability Demonstration FOA will provide funding to demonstrate the capability of large-scale solar and wind plants to provide grid services to the bulk power grid as well as improving grid reliability.

Topic 1: Wind and Solar Grid Services Design, Implementation, and Demonstration

This topic area supports full-scale demonstration projects that seamlessly integrate renewable generation with other large-scale or aggregated distributed energy resource (DER) technologies to provide ancillary (grid) services and improve reliability.

Topic 2: Protection of Bulk Power Systems with High Contribution from Inverter-Based Resources

The goal of this topic area is to develop a better understanding of how protection systems will operate under very-high IBR scenarios through advancements in modeling and simulation capabilities and to develop and validate strategies and new technologies that can maintain system protection at any level of IBR penetration and improve reliability.
