NOTE- Registration Requirements: As part of theDepartment?s implementation ofe-Government, WE ARE REQUIRING THE SUBMISSION OF APPLICATIONS THROUGHGRANTS.GOV. There are several one-time actions you must complete in ordertosubmit an application through Grants.gov (e.g., obtain a Dun and BradstreetData Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number, register with the CentralContractor Registration (CCR), register with the credential provider andregister with Grants.gov). You must complete all the one-time actions in?GetStarted? at www.Grants.gov prior to submitting your initial application.APPLICANTS, WHO ARE NOT REGISTERED WITH CCR AND GRANTS.GOV, SHOULD ALLOW ATLEAST 14 DAYS TO COMPLETE THESE REQUIREMENTS. It is suggested that theprocessbe started as soon as possible.Area of Interest 02 - Water Usage in Future Power Generation SystemsThermoelectric power generation is water intensive, requiring on average 25gallons of water per kWh produced. On a national basis, thermoelectricgeneration uses almost as much freshwater as does irrigation. Most of thewater is used for cooling the plant, causing thermal pollution and otherenvironmental impacts. Also, associated with plant cooling is theconsumptionof water through evaporative loss from the cooling system. Constraints onfreshwater resources and competition from other use sectors (e.g.,agriculture,industrial, public, in-stream use) will challenge the Nation?s ability toprovide sufficient water to meet current and future thermoelectricgenerationneeds. Coal-based electric power generation can impact water quality intermsof effluent discharges from point and area sources such as ash and scrubberliquor ponds and scrubber. In addition, re-circulating cooling towersrequirethe addition of biocides and corrosion inhibitors that may be releasedduringblowdown operations. Grant applications are sought to further research forimproving water quality associated with coal-based power systems in thefollowing areas: (1) use of non-traditional waters (e.g., grey water, minewater, produced water from oil and gas extraction) for cooling; (2) novelapproaches for reducing evaporative loss from cooling towers; (3)innovativetechnology for recovering and reusing water from power plant flue gases;(4)novel approaches for the removal of mercury, other trace metals, andnitrogencompounds from ash and scrubber pond effluents; (5) novel approaches forremoving biocides from cooling tower blowdown and (6) advancedwater-relatedsensors and controls at power plants to minimize adverse impacts to waterquality.To link to the master announcement, click on the following link:https://e-center.doe.gov/iips/faopor.nsf/UNID/AFDC3E3018D30D1C8525700C005DB010?OpenDocument
