SOFC SBIR Projects

The Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR) is a competitive program that encourages small domestic businesses to engage in Federally-funded R&D that has the potential for commercialization. Each year the Department of Energy (DOE) issues Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOA) inviting small businesses to apply for SBIR grants. More information on DOE/NETL SBIR opportunities may be found at:

The SOFC Program presently has five SBIR projects.
