New Funding Available to Small Businesses for Clean Energy Research and Development
Department of Energy (DOE)
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) opened new funding to small businesses for innovative clean energy technologies as part of its Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) programs. SBIR and STTR are competitive funding opportunities that encourage U.S.-based small businesses to engage in research and development to accelerate the commercialization of innovative technologies.
Through SBIR and STTR, EERE has enabled thousands of small businesses and entrepreneurs to develop cutting-edge technologies required to accelerate our transition to a clean energy future.
SBIR/STTR provides funding in two phases: Small businesses can receive up to $200,000 in Phase I to prove the feasibility of an idea; successful awardees can then receive up to $1.1 million in Phase II for further development including prototyping, validation, and testing.
The funding opportunity includes 38 topics funded by DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy covering all EERE technology areas:
Advanced materials and manufacturing
Small, Independent United States (U.S.) Businesses
Phase 1 - $200,000
Phase 2 - $1,100,0000
