October 18, 2012
The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) on October 12 released a request for proposals as part of its new $1 million program to further the development of clean energy technology in Massachusetts. Under InnovateMassc (Innovate Mass to the Clean Power), MassCEC will offer grants of up to $150,000 for projects designed to address energy challenges facing the Commonwealth, such as the need for more efficient trucks and shuttle buses or energy storage. It will require 100% in matching funds. The state organization will award the funds to help companies finance demonstration projects, which test and showcase new technologies in preparation to commercialize technologies for the marketplace. The first deadline for proposals is November 5 with the final applications due February 4, 2013. See the MassCEC press release.
