The PV Technology Incubator program spun off from DOE's Solar America Initiative, which provided money and expertise to some large American companies.

DOE officials told Symko-Davies that they wanted to encourage game-changing innovations among small start-ups, but wanted to make sure the money was leveraged and spent on the most promising ventures.

Besides the financial resource, the companies get access to the facilities and expertise at NREL, which has been researching solar energy since 1977.
