Directed Energy has established a number of programs to support the establishment of a WNY clean energy cluster.

Direct Assistance
Directed Energy’s flagship program assists start-up and small energy-related companies with technical, business, and financial assistance. This competitive program seeks to invest in client companies and seeks a return on that investment so that another generation of companies can be helped in years to come.
SBIR Phase 0
A program managed by Insyte Consulting to assist energy companies with preparing high quality SBIR/STTR proposals
Asset Inventory
A searchable database of assets (mostly regional) useful to energy companies
Energy Curricula Best Practices
A project to document some of the most successful university programs educating students in energy topics. These findings will be disseminated to WNY colleges and universities to assist them in curriculum development.
Seminars and Workshops
Seminars, workshops, or other events that support the WNY energy cluster and improve the technical and business acumen of WNY’s energy businesses
BNE's Business Attraction
