Funding Number: DE-FOA-0001266
Funding Amount: $45,000,000

The SunShot Initiative intends to issue a funding opportunity announcement entitled “SunShot Incubator 10, SolarMat 3, SUNPATH 2.”

This funding opportunity will enable the widespread market penetration of highly impactful solar energy technologies and solutions through technology research, development, and demonstration to overcome technical, institutional and market challenges.  Historically, annual funding opportunities have been separated by stage of technology development (Incubator, SolarMat, and SUNPATH). In the interest of optimizing the application and selection process, these funding opportunities have been combined into a single funding opportunity, with the goal of bringing disruptive innovation to the solar industry in the near term that will take root in the U.S. 

This funding opportunity has five tiers based on the type of product (hardware or non-hardware) and product maturity. Projects are expected to be funded with a maximum award level of $500,000 to $10 million, depending on the project tier. The total federal funding will be approximately $45 million with a 20% to 50% awardee cost share required, also depending on the project tier.  Click here for more information.
