BISMARCK, N.D. – The North Dakota Industrial Commission is currently accepting applications through March 1 for the North Dakota Renewable Energy Program.
The program funds projects that involve research and development of renewable energy technologies and processes that have strong growth potential in North Dakota. Any project proposing education, research, development or marketing of renewable energy resources, materials or products is eligible.
To be considered, projects must:
- Demonstrate a high probability of advancing to a commercially viable stage supported by a road map to commercialization.
- Have significant involvement from a North Dakota private entity.
- Not be duplicative of other research or demonstration projects or technology
- The Legislature established the program in 2007 to provide funding for research, development, marketing and education to foster growth of renewable energy including wind, biofuels, biomass, solar, hydroelectric, geothermal and hydrogen.
The North Dakota Renewable Energy Program is overseen by the North Dakota Industrial Commission, consisting of Governor Doug Burgum, Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem and Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring.
