DOE Awards $16 Million to Small Businesses logoThe Department of Energy awarded 88 grants to small businesses in 28 states to develop clean energy technologies with a strong potential for commercialization and job creation.

These awards, totaling over $16 million in investments, will help small businesses with promising ideas that could improve manufacturing processes, boost the efficiency of buildings and generate electricity from renewable sources. Companies competing for these grants were encouraged to propose outside-the-box innovations to meet ambitious cost and performance targets.

The small businesses receiving the awards are located in 28 states: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Washington.

Technologies among the 88 projects receiving awards include LED lighting, solar energy, wind energy, geothermal energy, biomass energy and advanced manufacturing.

Funded by the Department’s Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability, Office of Environmental Management, Office of Fossil Energy, Office of Nuclear Energy, and Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy through the Energy Department’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs, the awards are for Phase I and Fast Track (combined Phase I and II) work. That means that the new projects will go toward exploring the feasibility of innovative concepts that could be developed into prototype technologies.
