EPIC Incubator Program Logo

The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Energy Program for Innovation Clusters (EPIC) is a two-part, $5 million program sponsored by the Office of Technology Transitions (OTT) to encourage the robust growth of regional energy innovation ecosystems across the United States. With EPIC, OTT underscores the importance of clusters, which increase productivity of area companies, drive the direction and pace of innovation, and stimulate the formation of new businesses, further reinforcing the cluster itself.

The first part of EPIC is the prize portion, awarding a collective total of $1 million to 20 incubators focused on developing strong regional innovation clusters.

The second part is a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) that seeks to recognize innovation‑accelerating organizations focused on stimulating energy hardware development and related supportive ecosystems.
