American scientists and engineers invent transformative energy technologies every day, but these innovators often do not have manufacturing expertise – or know where to find it. The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) American Inventions Made Onshore (AIM Onshore) prize competition is seeking creative, specific, and innovative proposals from intermediary organizations – accelerators, incubators, universities, colleges, manufacturing institutions, and others – to deliver DOE’s Build4Scale manufacturing fundamentals training to energy technology innovators, and help them forge partnerships with domestic manufacturers. Successful proposals must include a sustainable revenue model to ensure the initiative is viable past the point of government funding. Prizes up to $150,000 will be awarded to four organizations. Applications are due by April 3, 2018.
