American leadership in energy innovation is key to growing the domestic economy, creating jobs, and ensuring energy security. But underlying structural challenges continue to weaken the American innovation ecosystem, limiting the economic return on research and development (R&D) investments.

EERE's Technology-to-Market Program (Tech-to-Market) strengthens the innovation ecosystem by eliminating common barriers that prevent market exploration of new energy technologies. Tech-to-Market does not fund individual technologies. Instead, we are reimagining the pathway to market for competitive clean energy technologies by addressing two interrelated areas: market readiness and resource access.
