The DOE Can Help You Finance Or Fund Your Energy Business



Originally published on Ecopreneurist.

US Department of Energy

One of the big challenges for both startups and established businesses is finding funding, whether it’s for launching a pilot project or expansion or research, and while there are a number of options available, including crowdfunding, equity investments, or conventional business loans, there is another potential source for financing an energy business.

The US Department of Energy offers information on grants, loans, and other finance options available for energy businesses through the Federal Government. Some of these opportunities are strictly for small businesses, some are targeted to clean energy projects and energy efficiency initiatives, and others are focused on funding advanced research and conventional energy sources.
