Summary:
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) intends to issue, on behalf of the Building Technologies Office, a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled "Buildings University Innovators and Leaders Development (BUILD)–2015." The BUILD FOA will have the following objectives:


Solicitation Title:  Request for Information for Solar Data & Informatics

Funding Number:    DE-FOA-0001218

Description:
The U.S. Department of Energy’s SunShot Initiative requests feedback from industry, academia, research laboratories, government agencies, and other stakeholders on issues related to data solutions for the deployment of solar energy.  SunShot intends to learn more on issues related to technical, economic, administrative, and legal barriers limiting the efficient collection and exchange of solar datasets; specifically, information on practical, industry-driven, financially enduring, and self-sustaining strategies that treat big data as strategic assets for the U.S. solar industry.

These student teams must include undergraduate students and be led by faculty with relevant expertise in energy efficient technologies, manufacturing (for projects developing hardware), and commercialization. The Lead Institution must be an Institution of Higher Education, which includes, but is not limited to universities, 2-year community colleges, and predominantly undergraduate institutions. The Lead Institution can choose to team with external partners such as a manufacturer or a government laboratory, but an external partner is not required at the time of application. Teams may propose to develop any technology (hardware), software, or manufacturing process with direct application to residential, multi-family and/or commercial buildings in the United States, with significant primary energy savings potential.
