DOE is investing $3.2 million to launch the National Incubator Initiative for Clean Energy , which will create a national support network to serve the clean energy small business and entrepreneur community, providing critical technical assistance and training services to bring these businesses and entrepreneurs closer to market readiness. The initiative will establish a suite of technological and training resources, connect critical industry and energy sector partners, enhance incubator best practices, and increase access to information about industry resources to advance innovative clean energy technologies emerging from universities and federal laboratories. The Initiative will fund a national organization, the Clean Technology Accelerator Program (CleanTAP), led by the Electric Power Research Institute in partnership with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
