National Energy Technology Laboratory, US Department of Energy. Deadline: March 20, 2015.

The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) University Turbine Systems Research (UTSR) program manages a portfolio of gas turbine-focused university projects. The NETL-UTSR program is part of an initiative in support of the Office of Fossil Energy’s Advanced Turbines program goals, DOE strategic goals and program mission needs. The funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is required to facilitate the development and demonstration of next-generation turbine technology with the goal of producing reliable, affordable, clean, efficient, and cost-effective energy supplies and to address the need for engineering and scientific solutions for air breathing gas turbines and supercritical carbon dioxide (SCO2) power cycles. The work will address scientific Research and Development (R&D) as well as technical challenges in turbine technology in support of DOE’s strategic goals, program mission needs and the achievement of programmatic technical goals.
