In July 2015, the Department of Energy launched its Small Business Vouchers Pilot Program to help clean energy small businesses access world-class researchers, facilities and expertise at national laboratories across the country.
"Critical technology challenges presented by clean energy small businesses will be evaluated in a uniform and fair process. The technology challenges from highly ranked small businesses will be properly matched with proposed solutions and capabilities from the national labs. The Energy Department will then provide vouchers valued between $50,000 and $300,000 to complete the proposed scope of work at the national laboratory."
