PNNL to receive $2.7 million under DOE Small Business Vouchers Pilot

July 15, 2015 |

In Washington state, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has been tapped as one of five national laboratories to lead the U.S. DOE’s new Small Business Vouchers Pilot. SBV will help small clean energy firms get technology assistance from world class scientists, engineers and facilities within the DOE national laboratory system.

PNNL was selected to support small businesses in three clean energy sectors: bioenergy, water power and buildings.

PNNL will receive approximately $2.7 million of the $20 million DOE is investing in the pilot. The Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy’s Small Business Voucher Pilot is part of EERE’s Lab Impact Initiative, which aims to significantly increase the industrial impact of national laboratories on the U.S. clean energy sector.

Starting this fall, companies with fewer than 500 employees will be able to apply for $50,000 to $300,000 in vouchers that can be used for a variety of technology assistance from PNNL and other DOE labs.
