Do you have groundbreaking technology that fits into the Department of Energy’s innovation goals? The mission of the Department of Energy (DOE) is to “ensure America’s security and prosperity by addressing its energy, environmental and nuclear challenges through transformative science and technology solutions.” DOE recently published its FY24 Phase ISBIR and STTR Topics Release 2. These topics outline unique opportunities for small businesses and research institutions to acquire funding up to$250,000 to spur technology R&D. Let’s dive into what this program offers and how Gallium Solutions can be your strategic partner in this journey.

Understanding the DOE's FY24 SBIR/STTR Phase I Program

The Department of Energy has always been at the forefront of supporting innovative technologies that tackle critical national challenges. In its FY24 Phase I release, the DOE is focusing on a wide array of topics:

Advanced Manufacturing: Projects that enhance manufacturing processes or materials to improve energy efficiency, reduce costs, or improve product quality.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning: Solutions that leverage AI/ML for better energy management, predictive maintenance, and enhanced operational efficiency.

Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency: Technologies that contribute to the renewable energy sector, including wind, solar, geothermal, and energy storage solutions.

Environmental Management: Innovative ideas for waste reduction, environmental remediation, and sustainable practices.

Nuclear Energy: Proposals that enhance the safety, efficiency, and sustainability of nuclear power.


Each topic is a gateway to not only advance technology but also to contribute significantly to the nation's energy goals.
