Department of Defense - Funding Available For Installation Energy and Water Technology Demonstrations

The Department of Defense (DoD), through the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP), supports the demonstration of technologies that address priority DoD installation energy and water requirements. The goal of ESTCP is to promote the transfer of innovative technologies through demonstrations that collect the data needed for regulatory and DoD end-user acceptance. Projects conduct formal demonstrations at DoD facilities and sites in operational settings to document and validate improved performance and cost savings.

ESTCP is seeking proposals for demonstrations of innovative installation energy and water technologies as candidates for funding beginning in FY 2018. The solicitation requests pre-proposals via Calls for Proposals to Federal organizations and via a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for Private Sector organizations. Pre-proposals are due 06 April 2017 | 2:00 PM (EDT). Detailed instructions are on the ESTCP website under Funding Opportunities.

Prospective Project: Everglades Ecosystem Restoration and Management
Deadline: 02 May 2017 | 4:00 PM (EDT)

The South Florida Natural Resource Center is soliciting proposals to address high priority research questions and needs for information synthesis and modeling that serve restoration planning and assessment. Effectively addressing these questions will help resource managers promote the restoration and sustainability of the Everglades and mitigate or avoid ecological degradation that is caused by un-managed drivers and disturbance events in the future.

The primary value of the proposed projects will be determined by how these projects will further Everglades ecosystem restoration and sustainability, either by influencing the design and implementation of the regional scale restoration program, or by influencing other important natural resource management systems such as fire management or habitat/wildlife management programs.

Six general topics of interest and associated key issues and questions that may be addressed via this Financial Opportunity Announcement include:
