Bonneville Power Administration Seeks Research Ideas

Technology Innovation will use a two-phase process to identify and select potential research and development opportunities. To share your technology innovation idea for phase one, submit your concept paper along with information about your teams’ qualifications, by April 4. Those who meet the phase one qualifying criteria will be invited to further develop their proposal for phase two. 

The Technology Innovation Council reviewed the progress of existing projects during the agency’s recent Technology Innovation Summit, Jan. 31 to Feb. 2. The updates helped the council determine which projects will continue to be funded. 

The agency expects to fund about $4.5 to $6 million on new projects next fiscal year. The council will announce the projects selected for the FY2013 portfolio in July. 

If you have questions about the submission process or would like to know more about the research topic areas, contact Sheila Bennett, technology innovation portfolio manager, at 503-230-3152 or [email protected]
