U.S. Wind Power funding opportunity

We wanted to pass along info about one of the Department of Energy's newest funding opportunities, U.S. Wind Power:  Next Generation Drivetrain Development.  According to DOE's release, they are looking to advance wind turbine drivetrains by developing concepts and designs for the next generation of drivetrain systems.  Projects are expected to run for up to 24 months and will include two budget periods.  Estimated DOE funding per award is at $2 million, with an estimated recipient cost share of $1.125 million per award.

There's a quick turnaround here.  Letters of intent are due by March 7, and the full application is due April 1.
