Jim Saber, President & CEO
As we move into spring and brighter days , I wanted to let you know about an exciting funding opportunity that the NextEnergy team has been working on behind the scenes.
We recently partnered with Michigan’s Office of Future Mobility and Electrification and the Michigan Department of Transportation to launch the Michigan Mobility Funding Platform. The platform, built upon the success of PlanetM Mobility Grants, provides deployment and testing grants to catalyze and scale mobility solutions that address the prominent needs of Michigan communities. We are looking for your innovative and intelligent solutions in three key areas:
- Sustainable futures: Improve environmental sustainability by encouraging electric vehicle adoption and the buildout of EV charging infrastructure.
- Equitable futures: Alleviate mobility barriers and increase access to affordable and reliable transportation options.
- Multimodal transportation: Modernize existing transportation systems and keep Michigan at the forefront across all connected and autonomous transportation modes.
The first round of applications will be reviewed starting July 1, 2021, and we encourage your organizations to apply. Need a little more guidance on the process or simply want to know more? Contact a member of our team!
In the meantime, check out the “Seven pitfalls to avoid in developing pilots” and stay tuned for updates on our work via NextEnergy’s website and social media platforms.
We look forward to working with you to deploy and test your technologies.
