DOE Releases SunShot 9 Funding Opportunity


| Reading time 1 minute

The Department of Energy’s SunShot Initiative has just released the next funding opportunity, SunShot 9.  SunShot 9 will provide funding (non-dilutive capital) to early-stage companies who can decrease the soft costs of solar.  The DOE is looking for applications from companies developing tools that will decrease these costs in all technology areas.  There’s $10 MM in total funding with awards varying in size from $250,000 to $2,000,000.


Genability was a proud recipient of a SunShot 6 Award for our Solar Avoided Cost Solution.  Working with the DOE and the SunShot team was a great experience for Genability and we’d encourage any early stage solar company to apply.  Concept Papers are due January 13 so get to work!
