The Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) released a solicitation on January 4, 2024, seeking proposals for demonstrations of innovative environmental and installation energy technologies as candidates for funding beginning in FY 2025. The solicitation requests pre-proposals via Calls for Proposals to Federal organizations and via a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for Private Sector organizations. Pre-proposals are due March 7, 2024 by 2 p.m. ET.
ESTCP supports the demonstration of technologies that address priority DoD environmental and installation energy requirements. The goal of ESTCP is to promote the transfer of innovative technologies through demonstrations that collect the data needed for regulatory and DoD end-user acceptance. Projects conduct formal demonstrations at DoD facilities and sites in operational settings to document and validate improved performance and cost savings.
Detailed instructions are on the ESTCP website.
DoD organizations (Service and Defense Agencies) may submit pre-proposals for demonstrations of innovative technologies in the following topic areas:
