New Technology Implementation Grant (NTIG) Program

The NTIG program provides grants to assist in the implementation of new technologies to reduce emissions of regulated pollutants from stationary sources.

A Program of the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP)

The latest application period has ended. Applications may no longer be submitted for funding consideration.

How to Apply

This section lists general information about eligible applicants and project categories under the New Technology Implementation Grant (NTIG) Program. Applicants should review the following documents for detailed requirements for each project type and information about applicant eligibility:

Eligible Project Categories:

Projects that implement new technologies to reduce emissions from stationary sources, including:

  • projects that involve the generation of electricity using at least one of the following fuels: coal, biomass, natural gas, petroleum coke, solid waste, or fuel cells that use derived hydrogen; and
  • the creation of liquid fuel outside of the existing fuel production infrastructure while co-generating electricity.

Projects that reduce emissions of regulated pollutants from stationary sources. Regulated pollutants include, but are not limited to:

  • criteria pollutants;
  • hazardous air pollutants (HAPs);
  • any other pollutants regulated under the Federal Clean Air Act; and
  • any other pollutants subject to requirements under TCEQ rules, regulations, permits, orders of the commission, or court orders.

Projects that reduce emissions from upstream and midstream oil and gas production, completions, gathering, storage, processing, and transmission activities through:

  • replacement, repower or retrofit of stationary compressor engines;
  • installation of systems to reduce or eliminate loss of gas, flaring of gas, or burning of gas using other combustion-control devices or installation; and
  • systems to reduce flaring and other site emissions by capturing waste heat to generate electricity solely for on-site services.

Projects related to renewable energy, including:

  • Lithium-ion batteries
  • Flow batteries
  • Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES)
  • Pumped Hydropower (PHS)
  • Thermal Storage
  • Chemical
  • Flywheels
  • Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage

Considerations:

Applications must demonstrate a substantial implementation plan that:

  • maximizes the likelihood that the technology will be implemented in Texas as soon as practicable; and
  • demonstrates the applicant's ability to operate and maintain the grant-funded technology for the duration of the contract, including the five-year reporting period.

The TCEQ requires applicants to complete the W-9 to certify their taxpayer identification number (TIN). The W-9 Form must be submitted with the Application Forms.

The TCEQ is committed to accessibility. If you would like to request a more accessible version of the project application, please contact the TERP program at 800-919-TERP (8377).

The following 3 items must be completed in full to be considered for eligibility:

  • NTIG Project Application
  • Project Proposal
  • W-9
