The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has released the latest request for proposals under the Competitiveness Improvement Project (CIP) for distributed wind energy. The CIP, supported by the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Wind Energy Technologies Office, aims to facilitate the development of next-generation, US manufactured small and mid-size wind turbine technology by awarding cost shared contracts for system design optimization, advanced manufacturing, and turbine testing.

NREL is currently accepting applications under six topics areas:

  • Pre-Prototype System or Component Research and Development
  • Component Improvement and Overall System Optimization
  • Prototype Testing
  • Certification Testing (for turbines with rotor-swept area under 200 square meters)
  • Type Certification (for turbines with rotor-swept area between 200 and 1,000 square meters)
  • Manufacturing Process Upgrades

Proposals are due March 28 by 4 p.m. Eastern Time. For more information on Wind Energy Technologies Office funding opportunities, visit the office's Financial Opportunities Web page.
