Grants of up to $65,000 to Massachusetts companies and researchers and students affiliated with qualified nonprofit research institutions for projects related to renewable energy. Funding is intended for projects with potential for climate impact, emissions reduction, and commercialization.
The Catalyst Program is jointly administered by MassCEC and MassVentures with the primary intent of stimulating the commercialization of clean energy technologies developed in the Commonwealth. Awarded funds are used to demonstrate the feasibility of technologies in specific industry applications in order to obtain increased industry and investor interest. Recipients must use funding for projects that move their technologies towards commercialization. This includes gathering initial data to demonstrate proof of concept, how the technology compares to existing technologies and competitive advantages of the technology, or to develop a prototype for the technology. Particular emphasis will be placed on selecting technologies that can be a foundation for new companies and technologies that can support market entry and/or improve the competitiveness of existing Massachusetts companies.
All proposed technologies must demonstrate a strong potential for climate impact and commercialization. While Catalyst funding may be used to support prototype development of any technology or proposed business model that meets MassCEC’s definition of “Clean Energy Technologies” (as defined in Section V below), particular emphasis will be placed on identifying projects in one or more the following four (4) areas:
