ACTION: Request for proposals. AGENCY: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) requests proposals to participate in the 2016 Collegiate Wind Competition (Competition), which is administered by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). DOE anticipates the award of ten (10) firm fixed price subcontracts under this solicitation. The anticipated period of performance is through July 31, 2016, with a funding availability of $20,000 for each award. The Competition is open to teams of undergraduate students from two- and four-year institutions of higher education. DATES: The request for proposals was issued on October 30, 2014 and is available at wind.energy.gov/ windcompetition. Technical questions must be received in writing to NREL by November 13, 2014. Proposals must be received by December 15, 2014. The Competition event will be held in May, 2016. Dates are subject to change. ADDRESSES: Interested persons can find full details about the Competition online at wind.energy.gov/ windcompetition. Questions about the Competition can be sent to: • Email: maurice.nelson@nrel.gov. • Mail: Mr. Maurice Nelson, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, 15013 Denver West Parkway MS RSF030, Golden, Colorado 80401. (The ADDRESSES caption includes any addresses that the public needs to know, such as where to mail public comments, where a public hearing (or meeting) will SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 65387 be held or where to examine any material available for public inspection or submission dates or due dates.) FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Questions may be directed to Mr. Maurice Nelson at (303) 384–7029 or by email at: maurice.nelson@nrel.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department of Energy Science Education and Enhancement Act (42 U.S.C. 7381b) authorizes the Secretary to support competitive events for students under the supervision of teachers, designed to encourage student interest and knowledge in science and mathematics. DOE introduced the Competition in 2014 for the purpose of engaging the future workforce in wind energy. NREL administers the Competition for DOE. The objective of the Competition is to prepare students from multiple disciplines to enter the wind energy workforce. Currently, the wind industry has shortages in key jobs such as scientists, educators, design and research engineers, technical workers, and project managers. Wind-specific advanced degrees are not required for many of these jobs, but having wind experience is of high importance. The Competition is also aligned with the central goals of DOE, which are to catalyze the timely, material, and efficient transformation of the nation’s energy system, secure the United States’ leadership in clean energy technologies, and maintain a vibrant domestic effort in science and engineering as a cornerstone of economic prosperity. The 2016 Competition theme is to design, construct, and develop a plan to market a wind-driven power system, which includes an off-grid load supplied by the wind-driven power generator. The load shall be designed to perform useful work in an off-grid environment, be easily transported to the competition, tested safely and cleanly in the Competition environment, and provide a visual indication of the instantaneous power generated by the wind-driven power system. This theme focuses on effective electrical and electronic design of the wind turbine for efficient and safe control of the device, a load system that can match the power being generated, and an overall safe and reliable mechanical and aerodynamic turbine design. The Competition does not prescribe a market or a wind regime. The Competition consists of three multi-faceted elements. The technical element requires teams to design and build a unique wind-driven power system, develop and present the technical designs to a panel of judges, E:\FR\FM\04NON1.SGM 04NON1
