The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has issued a request for proposals (RFP) to supply up to 2,000 MW of power generation from renewable energy sources by June 1, 2011.

Up to 1,000 MW of generation would be delivered to TVA by June 1, 2009. The amount would increase to a maximum of 1,500 MW a year later and to 2,000 MW by June 1, 2011.

TVA is targeting individual companies capable of producing at least 1 MW of electricity from renewable energy resources and is interested in proposals that would provide the power supply from one to 20 years.

Renewable energy generation technologies that will be considered include solar, wind, hydropower, ocean, tidal, geothermal, biomass and other biologically derived fuels. Clean energy generation technologies include combined heat and power, waste heat recovery and other low-carbon emitting resources.

TVA will contract for the output of renewable and clean energy generation through power purchase agreements.

In addition, as TVA evaluates its renewable energy portfolio, another RFP is being issued to allow others to partner with TVA on the continued operation, study and use of TVA's original three wind turbines on Buffalo Mountain.

Deadline: Jan. 16.
