There is significant interest in RHIC heavy ion collisions at c.m. energies of 5-50 GeV/u, motivated by a search for the QCD phase transition critical point. The low end of this energy range is well below the nominal RHIC injection c.m. energy of 19.6 GeV/u. There are several challenges that face RHIC operations in this regime, including longitudinal acceptance, magnet field quality, lattice control, and luminosity monitoring. We report on the status of work to address these challenges and include results from beam tests of low-energy RHIC operations with protons and gold.
