DOE Announces Up to $10 Million in Funding to Develop Natural Gas Demand Response Pilot Program

Today, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) announced approximately $10 million in federal funding for cost-shared research and development (R&D) projects under funding opportunity announcement (FOA) 2519, Natural Gas Demand Response Pilot Program.

The Natural Gas Demand Response Program’s (NGDR) goal is to reduce supply constraints and optimize energy consumption by promoting more transparency with respect to the costs of energy. Demand response programs aim to shift consumption by end-users away from peak demand periods (or periods of system strain), which can improve an energy system’s reliability and achieve overall reductions to meet energy efficiency goals.
