Other Funding Opportunities

  • The Small Business Innovations Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs are research and development initiatives across the federal government specifically targeting small businesses. Businesses that win SBIR or STTR awards keep the rights to any technology developed and are encouraged to commercialize it. VTO, through broader Department of Energy efforts, supports SBIR/STTR to increase commercialization of technology developed through DOE-supported research and development, stimulate innovation in the private sector, and improve the return on investment from federally funded research.
  • The Small Business Vouchers program through the Department of Energy's national laboratories provides U.S. small businesses with unparalleled access to the expertise and facilities of its national laboratories.
  • In addition to DOE funding opportunities, there are a variety of statelocal, and federal incentives, including tax credits, listed on the Alternative Fuels Data Center that support the use of alternative fuel vehicles and infrastructure.
