National Instruments has formally opened its 2011 Green Engineering Grant program. The annual competition seeks to promote and recognize development efforts in the areas of renewable energy, energy efficiency and smart grid systems.

NI will donate up to $25,000 worth of NI LabVIEW graphical system design software tools and training to eligible startups to help advance clean energy development in applications such as solar, wind and biofuel technology.

The 2011 program has a special focus on technologies that improve the smart grid and provide the foundation for a clean energy future.

To date, the NI Green Engineering Grant program has delivered NI software and training to more than 40 startups and small companies working on a variety of renewable energy applications. Past grant recipients are using NI tools in their renewable energy solutions to power remote villages with portable airborne wind technology; produce quality transportation fuels from inedible plants; and generate electricity by harnessing ocean thermal energy.
