Game Changer Competitive Grant Program is designed to support innovative renewable energy systems and strategies that advance the renewable energy market in the state. The program aims to mitigate costs and risks of developing new technologies and systems. MEA is interested in funding initiatives in its two Areas of Interest (AOI): i) technologies that reduce the cost or increase efficiency of Tier I renewable energy systems, and ii) commercial, customer sited electric storage systems that are integrated with renewable energy resources.
The program is open to any businesses in Maryland, including for-profit businesses, non-profits, and governmental entities. Projects must use commercially available technology and must be physically located in Maryland.
A total of $1 million is available for the program, with typical awards ranging from $50,000 to $250,000. The grant is limited to 30% of the project costs. Awards are intended to support cutting edge renewable technology projects that are “game changing” and are in their early stages of commercialization. Funding is not limited to renewable energy systems but also towards innovative project design ideas targeted towards increasing renewable energy systems, financing ideas, and overcoming barriers for renewable energy deployment. Potential projects may include, but are not limited to:
