Description:

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy
Efficiency and Renewable
Energy (EERE), through its Industrial Technologies Program, supports
industries
in their efforts to increase energy efficiency, reduce waste, and increase
productivity. The goal of the Industrial Technologies Program is to
accelerate
the development and use of advanced energy efficient, renewable, and
pollution
prevention technologies that benefit industry, the environment, and U.S.
energy
security.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement is commissioned on behalf of DOE?s
Industrial Technologies Program - Technology Delivery. Technology Delivery
was
established to provide an implementing approach for the Industrial
Technologies
Program. The approach combines integrated delivery of energy-saving
products,
services, and technologies to the energy intensive industries. Additional
information about Technology Delivery can be found on the website:
http://www.oit.doe.gov/bestpractices.

Plant-wide assessment, an element of Technology Delivery, is a systematic
approach to assess plant energy efficiency and identify opportunities for
energy reduction in industrial facilities. It is anticipated that such an
assessment would consist of at least two steps. The first is to assess
which
plant systems offer the greatest energy saving potential by compiling a
profile
of energy consumption. The second is to identify specific actions in each
of
the energy consuming systems. For a relatively low initial investment on
the
order of $100,000, prior experience has shown that companies can identify
very
significant reductions in annual energy costs from a combination of energy
efficiency and productivity improvements and waste reductions. This
announcement is the seventh in the series of announcements addressing plant

wide energy efficiency opportunity assessments that will increase the
market
penetration of efficient energy technologies, systems, and practices across

U.S. Industry. The objective of this annoucement is to continue
partnership
with energy intensive industries to identify new assessment approaches and
methodologies that will lead to substantial improvements in industrial
energy
efficiency, enhanced competitiveness and reduced environmental impacts.
DOE is
interested in developing a portfolio of assessment methodologies that can
be
used by industries to identify energy efficiency opportunities in plants
and a
comprehensive list of energy efficiency actions that energy-intensive
plants
can consider to improve energy performance. In addition, DOE has developed

energy assessment software tools, such as AIRMaster+, MotorMaster+, PSAT,
3E
Plus and PHAST. Training on utilizing these tools may be provided by DOE
for
use in plant wide assessments. It is desired that the assessments cover a
broad range of energy-intensive industries and assessment methods and do
not
duplicate assessments conducted under prior announcements (see Appendix C
for a
list of former assessments).

Priority will be given to sites where the assessment is to be conducted
and
fall within the following energy intensive industries, namely: agriculture,

aluminum, cement, chemicals, food processing, forest products, glass, metal

castings, mining, petroleum refining, and steel. Proposals from other
energy
intensive industries will also be considered.

Interested parties should access the DOE Golden Field Office Home Page at,
http://www.go.doe.gov/funding.html, and access the announcement in the
Industry
Interactive Procurement Website (IIPS) by clicking on the Access link.
The
Golden Home Page also provides instructions on registering and submitting
applicaitons in IIPS. DOE will not issue paper copies of the announcement.
