“Energy Department to Invest up to $7 million to Support Early-Stage Solar Technologies”
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced up to a $7 million investment through National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) into developing and commercializing new solar energy technologies. This news means private companies may benefit from close partnership with the national laboratories. Companies receive funding based on which tier they fit, Tier1 or Tier2. This funding shows government support for renewable energy research and its inclusion of renewable energy into policy making.
