Green Energy Grants: Finding a Way Through the Forest
Small businesses looking to start a green energy pilot program, larger companies looking to scale up, city and state government planners hoping to launch sustainable, renewable energy projects all need one thing to get off the ground: funding. Finding grants to support green energy ventures can be daunting, but there are many more options than entrepreneurs may realize.
The need for innovation in technologies that can move us away from reliance on fossil fuels toward the development of renewable clean energy companies is key to a thriving bioeconomy. And where a novel approach is researched, proven in concept, and validated, funding will follow.
Investors, including private venture capitalists, academic grants, the U.S. Department of Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency, or other federal, state, or local government agency, are sources of funds that will be needed for every stage of development, from basic research through to commercialization. But finding the right sources for individual projects can be like finding a particular tree in a dense forest. It helps to have an experienced ranger at hand.
The best renewable energy and biochemical consulting firms have experts in a wide variety of bioeconomy specialties, including all types of alternative energy and energy consultants. These firms should also have experts in renewable fuels like ethanol fuel and diesel biodiesel, synthetic diesel, renewable chemicals, renewable electricity, biomass energy, feedstocks, biomass technologies, bioproducts, and all areas of sustainability, synthetic biology, emerging technologies, and waste management, as well as even more specialized things like algae biofuel, agitation systems, agricultural waste, bio-oils, bio-jet fuel, carbon accreditation, carbon capture, carbon credits, climate change analysis, emerging technologies, environmental permitting, enzyme technologies, feedstock due diligence, financial due diligence, and glycerin related matters. They should have teams of experts for all types of clean energy, green energy, renewable energy finance, and renewables and should be able to provide expertise for projects and be available to serve as expert witnesses in matters within the bioeconomy.
