Environmental Security Technology Certification Program

Expiration Date: 


ALEXANDRIA, VA, January 7, 2021—The Department of Defense (DoD), through the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP), supports the demonstration of technologies that address priority DoD environmental and installation energy requirements. The goal of ESTCP is to promote the transfer of innovative technologies through demonstrations that collect the data needed for regulatory and DoD end-user acceptance. Projects conduct formal demonstrations at DoD facilities and sites in operational settings to document and validate improved performance and cost savings. ESTCP is seeking proposals for demonstrations of innovative environmental and installation energy technologies as candidates for funding beginning in FY 2022. The solicitation requests pre-proposals via Calls for Proposals to Federal organizations and via a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for Private Sector organizations. Pre- proposals are due March 4, 2021 by 2 p.m. ET.

Detailed instructions are on the ESTCP website under Funding Opportunities. DoD organizations (Service and Defense Agencies) may submit pre-proposals for demonstrations of innovative technologies in the following topic areas:

  • Environmental Restoration
  • Munitions Response in Underwater Environments
  • Resource Conservation and Resiliency
  • Weapons Systems and Platforms
  • National Guard Readiness Center Energy Assurance
  • Effective Planning for Electric Vehicle Infrastructure and Management
  • Improved Energy Resilience
  • Moisture Control in DoD Buildings
  • Installation Energy and Water Technology Transfer

The Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) and Call for Proposals (CFP) for Federal Organizations Outside DoD are seeking pre-proposals for technologies in the following topic areas:

  • Innovative Technology Transfer Approaches
  • Management of Impacted Groundwater
  • Detection, Classification, Localization, And Remediation of Military Munitions in Underwater Environments
  • Climate Model Comparative Assessment for DoD Infrastructure Applications
  • Improved Threatened, Endangered and At-Risk Species’ Monitoring Tools for Improved Training and
  • Testing Land Utilization
  • Demonstration and Validation of PFAS-Free Fire Suppression Alternatives
  • Technology Demonstrations to Accelerate Deployment of Energy Efficiency and Energy Resilience
  • Solutions (BAA Only)
  • Improved Energy Resilience
  • Moisture Control in DoD Buildings
  • Affordable Energy Assurance at National Guard Installations

WEBINAR – JANUARY 21: ESTCP Director Dr. Herb Nelson, Deputy Director Dr. Andrea Leeson, and the ESTCP Program Managers will conduct an online seminar “ESTCP Funding Opportunities” on January 21, 2021, from 1:30-2:30 p.m. Eastern Time. This briefing will offer valuable information for those interested in new ESTCP funding opportunities. During the online seminar, participants may ask questions about the funding process, the current ESTCP solicitation, and the proposal submission process. Pre-registration for this webinar is required. If you have difficulty registering, please contact the ESTCP Support Office at serdp- or by telephone at 571-372-6565.
