This New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) Program Opportunity
Notice (PON) 3413, Clean Energy Incubators, seeks proposals to catalyze the continued development and growth of a vibrant, self-sustaining clean energy innovation ecosystem in New York State through the support of clean energy business incubators. This PON is a continuation of NYSERDAs successful clean energy incubator program and will continue the evolution of the existing incubator program by making additional, competitively awarded funding available for clean energy incubators across New York State. NYSERDAs strategy is to provide operational and programming support for clean energy incubators that offer commercialization resources, technical assistance, and business development support to early-stage companies in order to help them achieve key milestones and accelerate their time to market. Proposals will be evaluated on the basis of innovative and high-impact programming for client companies and graduates, utilization of institutional resources and regional assets, collaboration with partners, and leverage of funding and support from other sponsors. NYSERDA seeks proposals specifically from the Capital Region and Western New York regions of New York State for Round 2. Up to $3,700,000 of NYSERDA funding is available through Round 2 of this PON. The maximum award per incubator will be $2,000,000. Awarded contracts will be for an initial term of four years with one, one-year option to renew. All, some, or none, of the available funds may be awarded in Round 2. NYSERDA reserves the right to add or reduce time and/or funding to awarded contracts.

If changes are made to this solicitation notification will be posted on NYSERDA's website at www.nyserda.ny.gov/funding-opportunities

Proposers may be existing NYSERDA-sponsored incubators and/or new incubators that are not currently supported by NYSERDA. Proposers must be entities with a demonstrable and proven track record of successfully providing business incubation services to early-stage companies that are developing the full spectrum of clean energy technologies and solutions. Proposers may be organized as for-profit or non-profit entities. Proposers must be located in New York State, which means that their principal place of business and management team must entirely be based within the state.

Proposers must have the physical facilities and ability to provide on-site resources and co-location space for client companies and graduates at such location. Historically, incubators providing physical space, on-site resources, and co-location space have been more successful in regard to fostering an entrepreneurial culture and assisting client companies and graduates achieve significant milestones. Successful proposers will be required to, without exception, provide site-specific programming, services, and physical space to incubator client companies and graduates. However, this shall not preclude the delivery of commercialization resources, technical assistance, and business development support to clean energy companies who are not physically located within the organizations incubator facility.
