U.S. DOE Announces Small Business Voucher Program

The U.S. Department of Energy, in conjunction with a number of National Laboratories, has a Small Business Voucher Program (SBV) for clean energy businesses. The SBV is a pilot program that seeks clean energy small businesses with innovative technologies that would benefit from National Laboratory technical assistance and capabilities. The program offers selected businesses up to $300,000 in assistance in the form of lab expertise (e.g., testing and technical input). SBV links your skills and innovation to the resources and experience of the national labs to help bring your products and ideas to market. Businesses with fewer than 500 employees working on advanced energy products and services in the technology areas listed below are eligible.
