111 Small Businesses and Other Entities to Receive DOE-funded Support to Accelerate Market Adoption of Clean Energy Technologies from 33 Organizations, Including Six National Labs
Washington, D.C. – The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Technology Transitions (OTT), in collaboration with the Offices of Clean Energy Demonstrations (OCED), Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM), and Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), today announced 111 entities to receive support in advancing their clean energy technologies, valued at $9.8M. The in-kind commercialization support will be provided by 33 supporting organizations in the form of DOE-funded vouchers.
The Voucher Program is funded by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law as part of the Technology Commercialization Fund (TCF) and leverages DOE’s recent partnership intermediary agreement with ENERGYWERX.
“It takes a breadth of tools and expertise to bring an innovative technology from research and development to deployment,” said DOE Chief Commercialization Officer and Director of the Office of Technology Transitions Dr. Vanessa Z. Chan. “The Voucher Program will pair 111 clean energy solutions with the support they need from expert voucher providers to help usher new technologies to market.”
The program helps small businesses and other non-traditional partners access testing facilities or obtain third-party subject matter expertise needed to advance their technologies, business, or energy projects to the next level. The available support works to increase the adoption readiness of the participating organizations and ultimately brings impactful, clean energy technologies to fruition nationwide.
Selected organizations will receive vouchers worth up to $250,000 each across five types of support, including analytical assistance (technoeconomic analyses, market readiness assessments, etc.), performance validation (testing, certification, etc.), and siting/permitting support for jurisdictions.
