DOE: Energy Innovation Hub Program: Research to Enable Next-Generation Batteries and Energy Storage DE-FOA-0002923

The DOE SC program in Basic Energy Sciences (BES) hereby announces its interest in receiving new applications for Energy Innovation Hub projects pursuing multi-investigator, cross-disciplinary fundamental research to address emerging new directions as well as long-standing challenges for the next generation of rechargeable batteries and related electrochemical energy storage technologies.

The proposed fundamental electrochemical energy storage research should impact a broad range of topics, including decarbonization of transportation and incorporation of clean energy into the electricity grid, especially for long duration energy storage (LDES).

Research on electrolyzer/fuel cell combinations using hydrogen or hydrocarbons as the chemical storage media are supported elsewhere within DOE programs and are specifically excluded from this FOA.

Pre-applications and applications that are out-of-scope will be declined without review.

This competition limits required pre-applications from USC to one as the lead institution.

Your application submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please send a two page abstract and a 3 page CV such as the SCiENcv to Richard White ( by February 17, 2023.. In addition to the 2-page abstract, you should also submit a biosketch for the PI.

The pre-application deadline to DOE is March 9, 2023, with invited full applications due May 18, 2023.

Please see the FOA for more details at:
