Statutory cost sharing requirements may apply to DOE projects, as required by section 988 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005.

  • The amount of required cost sharing will depend on the scope and technological maturity of the project:
    • Research or development activities of a basic or fundamental nature: no minimum cost share
    • Research or development activities of an applied nature: minimum 20 percent cost share
    • Demonstration or commercial application: minimum 50 percent cost share

Some projects may contain elements of more than one of the categories shown above. Therefore, some projects may have a blended cost share.
