The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality announced today that approximately $4.6 million in grants will be made available for projects that implement new technologies to reduce emissions of stationary sources in Texas, with at least $1 million made available for electricity storage projects related to renewable energy.

The New Technology Implementation Grant program is part of the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan. Eligible entities must own and operate—or intend to build, own, and operate—stationary sources in Texas.

Applications will be accepted until 5 p.m., Sept. 30, 2020, for the following NTIG project categories:

  • Electricity Storage projects related to renewable energy in Texas, with rated power of one megawatt (1 MW) or greater that efficiently makes stored energy available during periods of peak energy use.
  • Advanced Clean Energy projects that involve the use of certain hydrocarbons (such as coal, natural gas, or petroleum coke), biomass, solid waste, or derived-hydrogen fuel cells, while meeting minimum emissions reductions requirements.
  • New Technology projects that reduce emissions of regulated pollutants (such as criteria pollutants or hazardous air pollutants) from stationary sources.
  • New Technology Oil and Gas projects that reduce emissions from upstream and midstream oil and gas completions, production, gathering, storage, processing, and transmission activities.

TCEQ will host a free informational webinar on Tuesday, July 21 at 1:30 p.m. Please RSVP to TERP@tceq.texas.gov to receive instructions for joining.
