Funding Opportunity Deadline Today: Bioenergy Technologies Incubator

Dear Algae Biomass Organization members,

The Department of Energy is accepting concept papers and applications for a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) entitled “Bioenergy Technologies Incubator” that may be of interest to those developing innovative algae technologies.

The deadline for submitting concept papers is today March 31, 2014, at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, and the deadline for full applications is May 23, 2014, at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

This funding opportunity is intended to fund “novel and potentially disruptive ideas” which advance the Bioenergy Technology Office’s mission of developing sustainable, cost-competitive biofuels, bioproducts and biopower. The awards are expected to be between $500,000 and $2 million.

The funding will be awarded to “disruptive” proposals rather than those which offer incremental change in technology. The link below includes a summary of the FOA and information on how to apply:

If you have questions about about this opportunity, please contact the ABO’s legislative counsel, Laurie Purpuro, at
