MOOREFIELD, W.Va. (AP) - An Eastern Panhandle partnership has received a $5,000 seed grant to develop renewable energy technologies.

Eastern West Virginia Community & Technology College and Lost River Green Tech will use the funding to develop new ways to install wind and solar technologies. The grant also will be used to explore renewable energy’s market potential in the region.

TechConnect West Virginia’s Innovation Transfer Consortium awarded the funding to the college and the Hardy County startup firm. Lost River Green Tech is part of the college’s New Biz Launchpad.

TechConnect executive director Anne Barth says in a news release that the seed grant program seeks to support work that is “close to commercialization” and has market potential.
