DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY
 

Financial Assistance Award; United States Energy Association

AGENCY: U.S. Department of Energy, Pittsburgh Energy Technology Center.

ACTION: Notice of intent.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Department of Energy (DOE), Pittsburgh Energy Technology 
Center, announces that pursuant to 10 CFR 600.7(b)(2)(i) (B) and (D) it 
intends to make a Non-Competitive Financial Assistance Award (Grant) 
through the Pittsburgh Energy Technology Center (PETC) to the United 
States Energy Association (USEA). The DOE's role shall be as co-sponsor 
along with the International Energy Agency (IEA). The purpose of the 
grant is for USEA to organize and conduct the conference on ``The 
Strategic Value of Fossil Fuels: Challenges and Responses,'' to be held 
in Houston, TX on May 2-4, 1995. The Conference will serve as a forum 
to evaluate problems facing the fossil energy community including 
energy security, environmental requirements, compliance strategies, R&D 
agendas, technology innovation and regulatory issues.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: U.S. Department of Energy, Pittsburgh 
Energy Technology Center, Acquisition and Assistance Center, P.O. Box 
10940, MS 921-118, Pittsburgh, PA 15236, Attn.: Mary Beth J. Pearse, 
Telephone: (412) 892-4949. Comments or inquires should be submitted 
within 14 days of the date of this announcement.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The estimated cost to organize and conduct 
the conference is $250,000. DOE's funding share will be $100,000. The 
objective of the grant (DE-FG22-94PC94024) is to evaluate fossil fuels 
and their responsiveness to changing economic, environmental, and 
institutional forces, and to develop awareness of emerging trends and 
strategies to respond to challenges that may be presented. The 
Conference will focus on the entire spectrum of fossil fuels from 
initial production and recovery to end-use.
    Non-competitive Financial Assistance is warranted based on USEA's 
exclusive capability to conduct the conference successfully. 
Furthermore, private sector funding will finance the majority of 
conference expenses. DOE funding on a non-competitive basis will 
enhance the public benefit to be derived from the conference. DOE knows 
of no other entity who is planning to conduct a similar conference.
