The US Department of Energy (DOE) on 20 July announced awards totalling $127 million to a diverse set of small businesses working on advanced scientific tools and clean, secure energy. The 110 projects in 26 states are pursuing technological solutions that support the Administration’s clean energy goals – in areas such as cybersecurity, renewable energy, carbon management, grid reliability, and fusion energy.
