Washington technology center Renewable energy and energy efficiency business development Strategic plan.
(1) The Washington technology center, through its northwest energy technology collaborative, shall provide a forum for public and private collaborative initiatives to promote renewable energy and energy efficiency sectors in Washington state and the Pacific Northwest. The center shall seek to integrate the initiatives of the northwest energy technology collaborative into existing state programs and initiatives, including grant programs administered by the center, and energy efficiency business development projects and energy assistance programs of the department of community, trade, and economic development.

28B.20.297
Washington technology center Small business innovation research assistance program.
(1) The legislature finds that small technology-based firms are the source of approximately one-half of the economy's major innovations and that it is in the interest of the state to increase participation by Washington state small businesses in the federal small business innovation research program by assisting them in becoming small business innovation research program grant recipients.

The legislature further finds that many small business innovators lack the grant-writing skills necessary to prepare a successful small business innovation research program proposal, and the federal program that funded grant-writing assistance has stopped operations. Nearly fifty percent of small businesses trained under the federal program won grants compared to less than ten percent of those that did not receive training.

(2) As used in this section:

(a) "Small business innovation research program" means the program, enacted pursuant to the small business innovation development act of 1982, P.L. 97-219, that provided funds to small businesses to conduct innovative research having commercial application.

(b) "Small business" means a corporation, partnership, sole proprietorship, or individual, operating a business for profit, with two hundred fifty employees or fewer, including employees employed in a subsidiary or affiliated corporation, that otherwise meets the requirements of the federal small business innovation research program.

(3) The Washington technology center shall establish a small business innovation research assistance program, including a proposal review process, to train and assist Washington small businesses to win phase I small business innovation research program awards.

(a) The Washington technology center shall give priority to first-time small business innovation research program applicants, new businesses, and firms with fewer than ten employees.

(b) The Washington technology center may charge a fee for this service.

28B.20.298
Clean energy research, development, manufacturing, and marketing Findings Policy.
(1) The legislature finds that Washington state currently derives many benefits from its renewable energy and energy efficiency sectors. These sectors are an important source of employment and income for a significant number of Washington residents, currently generating close to one billion dollars in annual revenue and employing over three thousand eight hundred people. Equally important, energy efficiency and renewable energy businesses add to the region's quality of life by employing technologies that can reduce some of the harmful effects of the reliance on fossil fuels. Washington state possesses all the necessary elements to do much more to develop these sectors and to become a national leader in the research, development, manufacturing, and marketing of clean energy technologies and services. The state's work force is highly educated; the state's higher education institutions are supportive of clean energy research and cooperate closely with the private sector in developing and deploying new energy technologies; there are numerous enterprises already located in the state that are engaged in clean energy research and development; and the state's citizens, utilities, and governmental sectors at all levels are committed to diversifying the state's energy sources and increasing energy efficiency.

(2) It is therefore declared to be the policy of the state that its public agencies and institutions of higher learning maximize their efforts collectively and cooperatively with the private sector to establish the state as a leader in clean energy research, development, manufacturing, and marketing. To this end, all state agencies are directed to employ their existing authorities and responsibilities to:

(a) Work with local organizations and energy companies to facilitate the development and implementation of workable renewable energy and energy efficiency projects;

(b) Actively promote policies that support energy efficiency and renewable energy development;

(c) Encourage utilities and customer groups to invest in new renewables and products and services that promote energy efficiency; and

(d) Assist in the development of stronger markets for renewables and products and services that promote energy efficiency.

(3) For the purposes of this section and RCW 28B.20.296 and for RCW 28B.20.285 and 28B.20.287, energy efficiency shall include the application of digital technologies to the generation, delivery, and use of power.
