North Dakota Industrial Commission - Renewable Energy Council (REC)
Grants to North Dakota individuals, corporations, partnerships, agricultural producers cooperatives, and other entities to promote the development of renewable energy. Funding is intended for research, education, marketing, and development of renewable energy products, materials, or resources, or to advance energy technology.
In addition, the program promotes research and utilization of renewable energy co-product utilization for livestock feed, human food products, and industrial-use technologies. Industrial use technologies include but are not limited to wind, biofuels, advanced biofuels, biomass, biomaterials, solar, hydroelectric, geothermal, and renewable hydrogen through research, development, demonstration and commercialization.
Projects must demonstrate a high probability of advancing to a commercially viable stage supported by a road map to commercialization; and they must have significant involvement from a North Dakota private entity and not be duplicative of other research or demonstration projects or technology in the Upper Great Plains Region. An entity may apply for grants for different phases of a project, provided appropriate benchmarks are in place and earlier phases have been deemed successful by the Council and Commission.
For examples of eligible projects, see:

The Council may award multiple grants or loans for different phases of a project, provided appropriate benchmarks are in place and earlier phases have been deemed successful by the Council and Commission.
