Round 2 SBV requests are currently under review.

Powering the Clean Energy Economy

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) awarded nearly $7M in Small Business Vouchers (SBVs) in Round 1. Approximately 50-60 vouchers remain for Rounds 2 and 3 of the SBV Pilot.

The DOE SBV Pilot provides U.S. small businesses with unparalleled access to the expertise and facilities of its national laboratories. Over three rounds, DOE will provide up to $20M to support ~ 100 small businesses by issuing national lab vouchers valued between $50,000 and $300,000 per company.
