Dear Solar Supporter,

You have until this Friday, November 3 to submit a concept paper for the Generation 3 Concentrating Solar Power Systems (Gen3CSP) funding opportunity.

Gen3CSP will take successful high-temperature, lab-scale sub-component CSP technologies, develop them into integrated assemblies, and test these components and systems through a wide range of conditions. The first phase of the funding program will address gaps in technology pathways and focus on eliminating risks, while the second phase will build a test facility where the most successful pathway can be further studied.

There will be approximately 12 awards under Gen3CSP, each ranging between $500,000 and $35 million for a total of $62 million.

Download the full funding opportunity here and be sure to submit your mandatory concept papers by 5:00 p.m. ET this Friday.
