National Instruments has announced the renewal of its Green Engineering Grant program in 2012. In the last two years, the program has provided assistance to more than 40 companies developing next-generation control and measurement solutions in the renewable energy market. The program helps small companies and research groups around the world with up to $25,000 in software and training for graphical system design tools and techniques. The grant assists the creation of innovative solutions that can address complex renewable energy and electrical power challenges associated with the advancement of smart-grid, energy storage, electric vehicles and grid-tied power electronics control systems.

"The NI Green Engineering Grant program is helping clean-tech startups get the training and graphical system design tools they need to accelerate the crossover to the era when clean energy is cheaper and more abundant than fossil fuels," said Brian MacCleery, principal product manager for clean energy technology at National Instruments.

The grants are designed for companies or groups planning to use LabVIEW system design software and reconfigurable I/O (RIO) hardware to rapidly develop and commercialize their green technologies. Deadline for grant applications is November 1, 2012, and grants will be distributed by January 2013.
