[35 Pa.B. 5745]

   The Pennsylvania Energy Development Authority (Authority) was established to promote applied energy research; to provide financial incentives for the deployment of clean, alternative energy projects in this Commonwealth; and to promote investment in the energy sector of this Commonwealth. The Authority is reopening its April 1, 2005, solicitation seeking applications for innovative, advanced energy research and deployment projects and for businesses interested in locating their advanced energy operations in this Commonwealth. For this round of funding, projects must be related to electric power. The total amount of available funding is $3.5 million. Applicants who previously applied for this solicitation but were not selected are eligible to reapply, and previously selected applicants may apply to modify or expand an existing project.

   For purposes of this financial assistance opportunity, ''alternative energy projects and related research'' refers to deployment projects, manufacturing or research involving the following types of fuels, technologies or measures: solar energy; wind; low-impact hydropower; geothermal; biologically-derived methane gas, including landfill gas; biomass; fuel cells; coal-mine methane; waste coal; integrated gasification combined cycle; and demand management measures, including recycled energy and energy recovery, energy efficiency and load management.

In the case of applied research grants, the Commonwealth encourages the formation of public and private partnerships among postsecondary and private sector organizations.
