In recognition of Maine’s growing clean energy sector, and the state’s ambitious clean energy and climate goals, the MTI Board has allocated $500,000 in grant funding to accelerate at least two innovative proposals aimed at developing advanced clean energy technologies or services.
The purpose of the Maine Clean Energy Innovation Challenge will be to:
- Bring to market advanced technologies and services across the clean energy and climate spectrum (energy generation, energy efficiency, clean transportation, energy storage, data or software for energy management and innovative combinations of the aforementioned).
- Contribute to the achievement of state’s clean energy and climate goals.
Eligible companies shall be startups or small businesses engaged in clean energy innovation in Maine, or those currently located elsewhere looking to develop in Maine. Grants will be awarded for technologies or services that advance innovative solutions and have growth potential.
