Request for Proposals - Technical and Financial Feasibility Assessment of Community Microgrid Projects in Massachusetts – Community Microgrids Program
The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center’s (MassCEC) Community Microgrids Program seeks to catalyze the development of community microgrids throughout Massachusetts to lower customer energy costs, reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and provide increased energy resilience.
The program intends to award funding for feasibility assessments to advance proposed microgrid projects through the early project origination stages and attract third party investment to these opportunities. Community Microgrid Feasibility Assessment Grant Applicants must either have the capacity to carry out the feasibility study with a pre-identified team of their own, or may opt to receive a technical and financial assessment from a Technical Consultant contracted by MassCEC to perform such assessments.
MassCEC is soliciting applications from professionals with significant experience in community microgrids and energy project development to serve as the aforementioned technical consultant. The technical consultant will develop preliminary designs of specific multi-user community microgrids that serve the needs of communities across Massachusetts, and perform technical and financial feasibility assessments to evaluate their viability.
Completed applications must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org, and “Community Microgrids Feasibility Assessments – Technical Consultant” must appear in the email subject line. The deadline to submit an application has passed. Please check back in for updates on future funding opportunities.
