SunShot Initiative

With your help, we can accelerate the next generation of solar energy products to market.

DOE is accepting SunShot Incubator proposals for cost-reduction solutions to the solar energy market. The seventh funding round is designed to help universities, small businesses, and entrepreneurs develop both hardware technologies and nonhardware solutions that will make solar more accessible for Americans.

The SunShot Incubator program is designed to help make the leap from great ideas to the alpha/prototype phase or to launch. Does your team have such an idea?

Up to $12 million is available through this financial opportunity, so we hope you will consider submitting a proposal.

Thank you,

DOE SunShot Program
