On December 17, the Department of Energy announced the availability of $20 million in new funding for projects designed to integrate Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) systems with fossil fuel power plants. CSP technology involves a hybrid approach, in which solar-generated electricity is integrated into the infrastructure of existing fossil fuel plants, reducing costs and bringing new solar power on line more quickly. The new funding will support two to four projects and is part of DOE’s Sunshot program. More information about the new funding opportunity is available at http://apps1.eere.energy.gov/news/progress_alerts.cfm/pa_id=818. Interested applicants must file a notice of intent by Jan. 14, 2013, and a completed application by March 19, 2013.
