This program offers funding for novel technologies or the new application of old technologies. The grant, funded by the Delaware Clean Energy Fund and the public benefits program, is designed to encourage creative problem solving and the generation of new power-saving and power-developing technologies.
In addition to proving the project is innovative, applicants must show they will offer an educational element. This can include placing the technology in a facility where the public will be able to take tours and learn about it or integrating it into an educational program at a university or public school.
Grants cannot exceed 25 percent of the state’s annual Green Energy Fund balance.
