Department of Energy Releases New Funding Opportunity to Support Small Business Manufacturing Innovation
On December 13, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) released $54 million in new funding for the Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) Phase I program for Fiscal Year 2022. SBIR/STTR provides American small businesses and entrepreneurs the opportunity to conduct high-risk, innovative research and technology development and accelerate the national transition to a clean energy economy.
SBIR/STTR funding enables small businesses to achieve their goals in two phases: Phase I provides up to $205,000 to prove an idea’s feasibility. If successful, awardees can then receive up to $1.15 million in Phase II to develop a prototype. Additional Phase II awards are available for technologies with longer development and commercialization times.
Through the SBIR and STTR programs, the Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) collaborates with industry, small businesses, universities, national laboratories, state and local governments, and other stakeholders on emerging manufacturing technologies to drive U.S. industrial decarbonization, energy productivity, and economic competitiveness.
