Laboratory Subcontracts

The national laboratories that receive research funding from the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) often have financial opportunities for industry and outside organizations. The most common of these, laboratory subcontracts, are very much like grants at the EERE level.

Laboratory subcontracts are usually competitive, and, like EERE grants, they usually begin with a solicitation. However, laboratory subcontracts are evaluated by laboratory contracting staff. Applications for laboratory subcontracts are handled by the laboratories themselves.

To view open solicitation listings for subcontracting opportunities at EERE-funded national laboratories, see the following pages:
