The South Carolina Renewable Energy Grant Program provides grants to private and public entities located in South Carolina to assist those involved in renewable energy-related research and projects to become more competitive in obtaining federal and other grants.

Matching grants up to $200,000 are available for demonstration projects that validate the effectiveness of new and future biomass technologies and products, provided that the grant does not exceed 50% of the total cost of the demonstration project. The South Carolina Department of Agriculture administers the grant program, in cooperation with the South Carolina Institute of Energy Studies and the South Carolina Research Authority. Disbursement of these funds must be approved by the South Carolina Renewable Energy Oversight Committee.

Grants are also available for project planning and research and development projects.
