The Maryland Energy Administration announced the second round of funding for its “Game Changer Competitive Grant Program,” a program created to provide cost-sharing grants for innovative clean energy generation technologies and market strategies in Maryland.
This round of funding is focused on geothermal heating and cooling as well as bio-energy projects.
Applicants will be evaluated on the merits of their energy production, cost-effectiveness, market potential, project viability, cost share, project performance measurement and verification methodology, and project visibility.
Applications are due by April 22.
Most grants will range from $25,000 to $250,000.
Funding comes from public auctions of carbon credits through the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative.
