If you are a small business looking to get into the clean tech market, the Department of Energy wants to provide you assistance.
The Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is providing up to $20 million in vouchers so that small businesses can request technical assistance from national labs to help bring the next generation of clean technologies to market. Eligible small businesses can request a voucher for use at a National Laboratory valued between $50,000 and $300,000. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) awarded nearly $7M in Small Business Vouchers (SBVs) in Round 1. Approximately 50-60 vouchers remain for Rounds 2 and 3 of the SBV Pilot. Round 2 is open and ends on April 10.
