The funding, outreach, and award schedule for upcoming Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grants is provided below. The grants follow a funding ladder similar to that of other technology investors.

Please note that EERE only releases its SBIR/STTR topics as part of the DOE SBIR/STTR's annual Release 2. However, interested applicants should review both releases of Phase I topics to determine if their research ideas align to other topics. EERE often collaborates with other DOE SBIR/STTR programs when appropriate to review and fund grant applications submitted to non-EERE sponsored topics across both releases.

Learn more about DOE SBIR/STTR funding phases. View DOE SBIR/STTR award announcements and information on webinars and additional DOE SBIR/STTR topics.
