 How Do I Know if I Am Eligible for a Grant?

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

Eligible Applicants:

Eligible Applicants must be the owner or licensed operator of a facility located in the State of Texas or have received written approval from the TCEQ to apply for a grant.

Eligible Project Categories:

  • Advanced Clean Energy: 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.
  • New Technology (Stationary Sources): 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.
  • New Technology (Oil and Gas): 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.
  • Electricity Storage: Projects related to renewable energy.
  • Examples:
    • Lithium-ion batteries
    • Flow batteries
    • Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES)
    • Pumped Hydropower (PHS)
    • Thermal Storage
    • Chemical
    • Flywheels
    • Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage


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.
