Department of Energy reopens five voucher opportunities, launches two new ones

Five are focused on helping accelerate clean energy technologies, the others are to support manufacturers.

SSTI reports that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced the reopening of five voucher opportunities (VOs) to accelerate clean energy technology adoption and the launch of two new VOs with $15 million in available funding to support manufacturers via the Voucher Program.

The solicitations are structured so the first submission window solicits proposals from potential voucher providers and the second, which should be open soon, will be from potential voucher recipients. The application deadline for the first window is no later than 3 p.m. EDT on July 9.

Voucher providers support entities that need help launching new clean energy technologies or projects. ENERGYWERX lists possible voucher providers as being:

  • independent engineering and consulting firms;
  • private labs and testing facilities;
  • certification bodies;
  • testing and validation centers;
  • nonprofit entities or consultants with expertise in the regulatory and permitting processes;
  • incubators and accelerators; or
  • national labs.

Details and application forms for voucher provider opportunities can be found at the links below:

DOE is hosting the following informational office hour sessions for those interested in applying as a provider for the Voucher Program:
