NEW: Mass Gets $1 Million to Promote Clean Energy

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

 

The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) announced today a new $1 million program to push the development of clean energy technology in the Commonwealth.

Through this new program, MassCEC will offer between $100,000 and $300,000 for projects designed to address energy challenges facing Massachusetts. These projects include, but are not limited to, optimizing renewable energy, creating fuel efficient vehicles, and energy storage systems.

MassCEC will require 50 percent in matching funds from the company receiving the grant, and is awarding the funds to help companies finance demonstration projects that test and showcase new technologies before they are commercialized.

“Massachusetts companies are creating some of the most leading-edge clean energy technologies," said Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Rick Sullivan. "Our support will help them create local jobs across the state and expand the adoption of clean energy."

MassCEC, which was created by Governor Deval Patrick's Green Jobs Act of 2008, has a mission to foster growth in the clean energy industry of Massachusetts. MassCEC CEO Alicia Barton-McDevitt says these new funds will help them continue that mission.

“Helping our emerging companies bring new technologies to market is at the core of our mission to grow the Massachusetts clean energy economy,” said Barton-McDevitt. “Our investments in workforce development, incentives and commercialization are producing results including double-digit clean energy job growth in Massachusetts over the past year.”
