The Alaska Energy Authority (AEA) has issued a request for proposals (RFP) from qualified applicants for the purpose of evaluating and recommending renewable energy projects to be funded by the Alaska State Legislature.

To be eligible for a grant recommendation, the applicant's project must be a new project not in operation before Aug. 20, 2008 or an addition to an existing project made after Aug. 20, 2008.

Projects must also generate energy from or involve the direct use of wind, solar, geothermal, wasteheat recovery, hydrothermal, wave, tidal, river in-stream, hydropower; low-emission nontoxic biomass based on solid or liquid organic fuels from wood, forest and field residues, or animal or fish products; dedicated energy crops available on a renewable basis; or
landfill gas and digester gas.

AEA will solicit grant applications in two rounds. The first round is for projects that may be ready and able to proceed more quickly with the anticipation that grants would be awarded by December. The second round is for projects that may require further development or that may take more time to prepare applications.

Deadline: Oct. 8 for the first round, Nov. 10 for the second round.
