DOE announces new SBIR topics

The US Department of Energy (DOE) announced its 2009 SBIR topic area list this week. There are 60 topic areas for which applicants can propose projects, many of them in the clean and renewable energy sectors of interest to Green Technology initiatives. This is a preliminary notice, with the official opening of the DOE's 2009 SBIR solicitation to come in mid-September. Monitor the SBIR Gateway for the official opening announcement.

The DOE uses the website and process for acceptance of SBIR proposals, and if you haven't used this mechanism before, I encourage you to prepare in advance and get registered now. The State of Connecticut (which will host the Fall National SBIR Conference in November) has put together an excellent presentation on the multi-step registration process that you can dowload by clicking HERE. Most of the Federal Agencies that offer SBIR grants use, and, fortunately, you only have to go through this registration process once.
