Funding Available for Energy, Power and Adaptive Systems Program Projects

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) by VARALAKSHMI PULUGURTHA Targeted News Service WASHINGTON, Aug. 21 -- The U.S. National Science Foundation has announced that it expects to award a discretionary grant to support the design and analysis of intelligent and adaptive engineering networks, including sensing, imaging, controls and computational technologies for a variety of application domains.


There is no award ceiling specified for this funding opportunity.

This funding opportunity is open to any entity such as state, county, city, township and special district governments; Native American tribal governments and organizations; institutions of higher education; Historically Black Colleges and Universities; Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities; nonprofits; for profit organizations; small businesses; eligible agencies of the federal government; and faith-based or community-based organizations.

A funding opportunity notice from the NSF states: "EPAS [Energy, Power and Adaptive Systems] places emphasis on electric power networks and grids, including generation, transmission and integration of renewable, sustainable and distributed energy systems; high power electronics and drives; and understanding of associated regulatory and economic structures. Topics of interest include alternate energy sources, the Smart Grid, and interdependencies of critical infrastructure in power and communications. The program also places emphasis on energy scavenging and alternative energy technologies, including solar cells, ocean waves, wind, and low-head hydro. In addition, the program supports innovative test beds, and laboratory and curriculum development to integrate research and education. EPAS invests in adaptive dynamic programming, brain-like networked architectures performing real-time learning, neuromorphic engineering, telerobotics, and systems theory. The program supports distributed control of multi-agent systems with embedded computation for sensor and adaptive networks. EPAS provides additional emphasis on emerging areas, such as quantum systems engineering, quantum and molecular modeling and simulation of devices and systems." The funding opportunity number is PD-13-7607 (CFDA 47.041). The application closing date is Nov. 1.
