Funded by:

U.S. Department of Energy


The objective of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to solicit and competitively award university-based R&D projects that address and resolve fundamental scientific challenges and applied engineering technology issues associated with thermal management of combustors and hot gas path components for gas turbines. Specifically, R&D projects will conduct fundamental and applied research to develop advanced materials and advanced hot gas path components which utilize these advanced materials, advanced cooling architectures, and advanced manufacturing methods.

The FOA will seek to solicit and competitively award laboratory/bench-scale R&D in the following areas of interest (AOI):

  • AOI 1: Fundamental Materials Development for Hot Gas Path Hydrogen Turbine Components
  • AOI 2: Applied Materials Development for Hot Gas Path Hydrogen Turbine Components
  • AOI 3: Fundamental Materials Development for Hydrogen Rotating Detonation Engines (RDEs)
