EERE Launches its Financial Opportunities Web Site

DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) has launched a new Web site that lists opportunities for financial assistance. The site lists current and past solicitations from EERE and provides specific funding information for business, industry, and universities, as well as consumers, federal energy managers, inventors, states, and tribes. In fiscal year 2004 alone, EERE awarded approximately $506 million in financial assistance. See the EERE Financial Opportunities Web site.

Here's one solicitation to watch out for: on September 21st, DOE will release the solicitation for its Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer programs. The solicitation will cover such topics as renewable energy sources, biofuels, solid-state lighting, energy-efficient membranes, lightweight materials for vehicles, electric energy storage for vehicles, and advanced motors, power electronics, sensors, and controls. See the "technical topic titles" on the DOE Office of Science Web site.
