CESMII BP-1 2017 Request for Proposals

The Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CESMII) plans to issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) for Research and Development (R&D) programs. The total available CESMII funding will be approximately $10.5 Million with a 30% awardee cost-share requirement. CESMII's objectives are to enhance U.S. manufacturing productivity, global competitiveness, reinvestment by increasing energy productivity, economic performance, and workforce expansion, while ensuring institute sustainability. 

CESMII plans to award projects in the following Areas of Interest (AOI) in 2018. These AOI's were carefully identified by the CESMII Roadmap. The budgets set forth are targets and may be revised on based on actual proposals submitted in order to construct an optimized portfolio of projects. Proposals that do not fall in the AOI's set forth will not be assessed by CESMII or be eligible for CESMII funding in 2018. 

Please see the full Notice of Intent to know more about the goals of CESMII and Areas of Interest.
