TCEQ Offers Grants for Emission-Reduction Technology

Posted: November 19, 2015 - 15:00 / TX / FOA-RFI-RFP

The Texas Commission of Environmental Quality has announced that applications are now being accepted until 5:00 p.m. on Feb. 16, 2016, for New Technology Implementation Grants.

The program is part of the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan, and provides up to $3.5 million in grants for eligible individuals and businesses who build, own, and operate new technologies to reduce emissions from point sources or store electricity related to renewable energy.

There are three NTIG project categories:

  • Advanced Clean Energy projects that involve the use of certain hydrocarbons (coal, natural gas, or petcoke), biomass, solid waste, or derived-hydrogen fuel cells, while meeting minimum emissions reductions requirements      
  • New Technology projects that reduce emissions of regulated pollutants (such as criteria pollutants or hazardous air pollutants) from point sources
  • Electricity Storage projects that store electrical energy related to renewable energy sources
