DOE: $30 Million Available for Weatherization Innovation

On April 21, 2010, The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced that it will provide up to $30 million to fund the Weatherization Innovation Pilot Program, which is designed to accelerate innovations in whole-house weatherization technologies and services.

The new program will fund new projects that will deliver measureable improvements in the cost, scope, and energy savings of low-income weatherization programs across the country. The competitive funding opportunity is open to collaborative partnerships that can include the private sector, colleges or universities, utility companies, non-profit organizations, or existing weatherization providers.
