Great news! We are renewing the NI Green Engineering Grant program in 2012.
The grant program helps eligible small companies and research groups focused on innovative control and measurement applications in renewable energy and clean-tech fields worldwide. It focuses on advancing technology in smart-grid, energy storage, electric vehicles and grid-tied power electronics control systems.
Over the past two years, the NI green grant program has helped more than 40 companies deliver their clean energy solutions to market faster through applications such as wind power, energy storage and electric vehicles.
Grants are designed for companies or groups planning to use LabVIEW system design software and reconfigurable I/O (RIO) hardware to rapidly develop and commercialize their green technologies.
The grant awards engineers and scientists developing systems that could make a significant contribution toward a clean energy future.
The deadline for grant applications is November 1, 2012, and grants will be distributed by January 2013.
