Regional Energy Technology Innovation Ecosystems Characterization Assessments

The objective of this FOA is to fund analytical studies that characterize and examine the potential of an integrated strategy for a multi-state region to enhance and accelerate energy innovation via a regional energy innovation ecosystem.

For purposes of these studies, a region must comprise


a minimum of three contiguous states.

The studies and supporting analysis should provide new insights as to how an integrated regional strategy could promote affordable, reliable innovative energy technology; create jobs; increase entrepreneurial activity and new venture financing; and promote economic growth and prosperity.

The studies should provide data-driven insights and analysis, relying, in part, on inputs from current and potential energy innovation ecosystem participants within the proposed region.

Studies should analytically support components of an integrated regional strategy that could provide benefits that a “business as usual” approach would not.

In addition to identifying how an integrated regional strategy might enhance and accelerate energy technology and deployment, the results should help DOE identify the possible benefits such regional innovation strategies might have to help meet key national objectives of energy security, economic competitiveness and environmental responsibility.
