DOE Breaks Down Market Barriers with Online Technology Commercialization Portal

June 30, 2010

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced today the launch of the Technology Commercialization Portal—an online resource that will serve as a tool for potential investors to identify opportunities to invest in work being conducted by DOE laboratories and participating research institutions. Traditionally, investors, entrepreneurs, and companies have faced substantial barriers when identifying clean energy technologies to license. The Technology Commercialization Portal will help reduce these barriers to investment providing capital markets with key information on the attributes, uses, benefits, and market-readiness of specific energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies.
The marketing summaries available online describe in detail what energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies are available for licensing, and each summary outlines a technology's applications, advantages, benefits, and stage of development. The Web site can streamline a search for specific technologies, or allow the user to browse by subject area. It can also connect investors and organizations to the proper licensing contact.
