HeatPath Solutions receives DOE-funded support to accelerate clean energy technology to market

Lewis Center, OHIO, January 22, 2024 – Ohio’s own HeatPath Solutions was one of 111 organizations to receive government funding to accelerate market adoption of clean energy technologies.

HeatPath Solutions, a developer of sustainable chemicals and chemicals process technology for consumer-packaged goods was awarded funding to develop fundraising roadmaps and capture planning, with Peak Innovations Group, LLC.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Technology Transitions (OTT), in collaboration with the Offices of Clean Energy Demonstrations (OCED)Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM), and Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), today announced 111 entities to receive support in advancing their clean energy technologies, valued at $9.8M. The in-kind commercialization support will be provided by 33 supporting organizations in the form of DOE-funded vouchers. 

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funds the Voucher Program as part of the Technology Commercialization Fund (TCF) and leverages DOE’s recent partnership intermediary agreement with ENERGYWERX.

“It takes a breadth of tools and expertise to bring an innovative technology from research and development to deployment,” said DOE Chief Commercialization Officer and Director of the Office of Technology Transitions Dr. Vanessa Z. Chan. “The Voucher Program will pair 111 clean energy solutions with the support they need from expert voucher providers to help usher new technologies to market.”

The program helps small businesses and other non-traditional partners access testing facilities or obtain third-party subject matter expertise needed to advance their technologies, business, or energy projects to the next level. The available support works to increase the adoption readiness of the participating organizations and ultimately brings impactful, clean energy technologies to fruition nationwide. 

Selected organizations will receive vouchers worth up to $250,000 each across five types of support, including analytical assistance, performance validation, and siting/permitting support for jurisdictions.
