Exploratory Efforts
GCEP provides funding for research activities of an exploratory nature that test the feasibility and application of potential step-out ideas. These activities focus on novel approaches and innovative concepts associated with technologies that may permit reductions in greenhouse gas emissions on a global scale. While exploratory activities are limited to $100K and a one-year performance period, the preliminary analysis results may support the submission of a detailed proposal.  Please see Completed Exploratory Efforts.
