The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has launched the “American-Made Solar Prize” competition to revitalize U.S. solar manufacturing.

The program will support entrepreneurs as they develop transformative ideas into concepts and then into early-stage prototypes ready for industry testing.

The competition will involve entrepreneurial individuals and teams competing through a series of three successive prize contests designed to develop new products to be made in America.

Competitors will have access to mentoring and other supportive resources through a network of national labs, incubators, investors, and industry experts.

The DOE adds that in order to win the final prize, participants must identify an impactful solution that addresses critical challenges related to American solar competitiveness, create a proof of concept, and secure a committed partner to test a prototype.
