The DOE Voucher Program builds bridges between U.S. entrepreneurs, businesses, technology developers or other relevant partners and third-party voucher providers to advance commercialization of innovative energy technologies. Voucher Opportunity (VO-1) addresses key adoption risk areas faced by companies already funded by DOE and leaving the research and development stage, through supporting activities including bankability studies, manufacturing / supply chain assessments, community benefits assessments, and other technoeconomic analyses.
The first submission window solicits proposals from potential voucher providers. A second submission window will be open soon to solicit requests from potential voucher recipients. Pending availability of funds, additional submission windows may open in the future.
Voucher Projects: Expected max voucher worth $50,000 of work.
