WASHINGTON, Dec. 9, 2015 - The Department of Energy (DOE) has established the Clean Energy Investment Center to support its Clean Energy Investment Initiative, which was launched in February. The center’s goal is to advance private, mission-oriented investment in clean energy technologies and make the department’s resources more readily available to the public. The Clean Energy Investment Center offers:
· Single Point of Access for Information: The center will ensure that information about DOE programs is understandable and accessible. It will serve as a “one-stop” for investors to locate subject matter experts, acquire the latest reports and data on clean energy technology, and find a listing of companies and projects funded by the agency. This information will enable investors to make informed decisions based on DOE’s research and analysis.
· Technical Assistance: The center will share research and analysis produced by DOE and its 17 national laboratories on developments in clean energy technology.
· Information on Early-Stage Projects and Companies: DOE currently has programs including the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR), Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR), and others that help fund and accelerate emerging early-stage technology projects and companies. The center will provide information on entities currently engaged in partnerships with DOE.
· Connections to Additional Relevant U.S. Government Programs: The center will include information about energy and climate programs at other government agencies including the departments of Agriculture, Housing and Urban Development, Transportation, and Treasury as well as the Environmental Protection Agency, Small Business Administration and the National Science Foundation.
