NYSERDA - Innovation in Manufacturing Clean Energy Technologies

July 14, 2021

Summary

This Program Opportunity Notice is no longer available.

Under Program Opportunity Notice (PON) 2414, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) offers incentives for projects that research, develop, demonstrate, or commercialize a manufacturing process for clean energy technologies. Clean energy technologies are defined to include: technologies that generate or support the generation of energy; end-use technologies, energy storage technologies; and distribution and transmission technologies. In order to be eligible for the program, technologies and relevant components of their supply chain must have been successfully demonstrated to substantially reduce energy-related environmental impacts. Projects throughout the state are eligible for the program, which is set up to provide incentives for several categories of project. Brief descriptions of these project categories and the associated funding limitations are described below.

  • Manufacturing Process Development (Category A): Projects that develop a manufacturing process for a new clean energy technology that result in a functioning manufacturing process within the state are eligible for an incentive of the lesser of 50% of project costs or $400,000.
  • Manufacturing Process Improvement (Category B): Projects that demonstrate a process improvement of an existing manufacturing process that results in actual on-site energy savings are eligible for an incentive of the lesser of 50% of project costs or $400,000.
  • Technology Development (Category C): Projects that develop, demonstrate, or commercialize an innovative manufacturing tool (e.g., assembly or testing equipment) are eligible for an incentive of the lesser of 50% or project costs of $400,000. In order to qualify under this category, the proposer must have strong ties to the clean energy sector and partner with a manufacturer that would be a candidate for using the technology.
  • Feasibility Studies (Category D): Feasibility studies for projects that would fall under Categories A, B, or C are eligible for an incentive of the lesser of 50% of project cost or $100,000. Eligible projects may include proof-of-concept investigations or prototype design and development.

A total of $2.5 million in funding is available under the solicitation. Proposal deadlines are set at May 9, 2012 for Round 1 and September 26, 2012 for Round 2. All or none of the funding may be awarded in either round. Please see PON 2414 at the program web site listed at the top of this page for further information.
