Clean Energy Technology Commercialization Portal

Posted on September 22, 2010. Filed under: energy, energy efficiency, research & development, tech transfer |

 Courtesy of the US Dept. of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) comes a Technology Commercialization Portal which could be considered a one-stop shop for technology transfer opportunities in renewable energy and energy efficiency arenas.

The Technology Commercialization Portal enables you to find patents and patent applications for energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies and a growing number of technology marketing summaries, all developed by U.S. Department of Energy laboratories and participating research institutions.

 The EERE Technology Commercialization Portal currently contains almost 200 technology marketing summaries, almost 12,000 patents available for licensing, and just over 3,000 patent applications.  The technologies covered fall into one of fourteen categories:

  •  Advanced Materials
  • Biomass and Biofuels
  • Building Energy Efficiency
  • Electricity Transmission and Distribution
  • Energy Analysis Models, Tools and Software
  • Energy Storage
  • Geothermal
  • Hydrogen and Fuel Cell
  • Hydropower, Wave and Tidal
  • Industrial Technologies
  • Solar Photovoltaic
  • Solar Thermal
  • Vehicles and Fuels
  • Wind Energy

There’s a nice story about this portal in the August/September issue of Innovation – “Introducing a Portal to Make Technology a Lot Easier“.  This could be a very useful tool.  I like it!  —nks
