About this program...
The National Laboratory Impact Initiative has kicked off The Small Business Vouchers (SBV) Pilot. The goal of the pilot is to help small businesses bring next-generation clean energy technologies to the market faster by enabling them to access lab expertise and tools easily and affordably. SBV’s upcoming $20 million investment in small business assistance and collaborative research has the potential to increase and enhance laboratory-private sector relationships, increase and streamline access to national laboratory capabilities, and demonstrate the value of lab-developed science and technology.
The Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) has selected 5 national labs—Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and the Sandia National Laboratories—as the leads to further structure the pilot
