Clean Energy Business Vouchers

$20M available from DOE for small business innovators

DOE announced a Small Business Voucher (SBV) Pilot program today. Its purpose is to give small clean energy businesses vouchers ($50K to $300K each) for assistance from National Laboratories that are best suited to help bring the company’s innovation to market.

The pilot has $20 million available. Participation will determine the level of interest and if this type of assistance meaningfully helps emerging companies succeed.

There will be three rounds. Each will be open one month. The first round opens Sept 23 and closes Oct 23, 2015.
