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 point sources.

A Program of the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP)

The TCEQ is now accepting applications for funding consideration under the NTIG Program for Energy Storage Projects only. Applications must be received and date-stamped at the front desk, Rm. 1301, 1st floor of Building F on the premises of the TCEQ by no later than 5:00 p.m., Central Time, Tuesday, May 1, 2018.

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 Grants (NTIG) Program. Applicants should review the Request for Grant Applications (RFGA) and NTIG Guidelines for detailed requirements for each project type and information about applicant eligibility.

 

Only projects in the Electricity Storage Projects category are being considered for funding at this time.

 

Eligible Applicants:

Eligibile 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:

  • 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
  • Advanced Clean Energy: projects for new or modified sources (TCEQ is not accepting applications for Advanced Clean Energy projects at this time.)
    Advanced Clean Energy projects must:
    • involve the use of coal, biomass, natural gas, petroleum coke, solid waste, or fuel cells that use derived hydrogen; and
    • meet the minimum emissions reductions requirements outlined in the RFGA.
  • New Technology: projects that reduce emissions of regulated pollutants from point sources  (TCEQ is not accepting applications for New Technology projects at this time.)
    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.

 

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.
