Financial Opportunities

The Wind Program focuses on technological development to improve the reliability and affordability of wind energy and addressing barriers to wind energy deployment. The program funds research and development activities through competitive solicitations.

The program does not fund the purchase or installation of wind energy systems by individuals or companies. For information on federal grants and tax incentives for the purchase and operation of wind energy systems, please see the Related Opportunities page.

Small businesses in the clean energy sector are invited to apply for assistance from the Energy Department's national laboratories through the department's new Small Business Vouchers Pilot. As part of EERE's National Laboratory Impact Initiative, the pilot aims to help small businesses bring next-generation clean energy technologies to the market faster by enabling them to access expertise and specialized equipment at five of DOE's national labs.

Although the Wind Program attempts to maintain current information on these solicitations, the official source for funding information is FedConnect. If inconsistencies exist between this site and FedConnect, FedConnect should be considered correct.
