On July 10, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced $72 million in funding for small businesses to pursue scientific, clean energy, and climate research, development, and demonstration projects. This funding includes $8.6 million for 43 hydrogen and fuel cell projects across 16 states. The announcement underscores the Biden-Harris administration’s deep commitment to advancing innovative climate solutions and strengthening America’s global scientific leadership, which are critical to achieving the president’s goal of a carbon-free grid by 2035 and net-zero emissions by 2050. 

“America’s small businesses have always played a critical role in moving our nation forward, and this entrepreneurial spirit helped established America as a global leader in science and innovation,” said U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm. “President Biden understands this, which is why DOE is providing companies coast to coast with resources to develop game changing solutions to tackle the climate crisis and build a clean energy future.”
