Projects Recognize DOE-Supported Innovations in National Labs

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) researchers have won 41 of the 100 awards given out this year by R&D World Magazine. The annual R&D 100 Awards are given in recognition of exceptional new products or processes that were developed and introduced into the marketplace during the previous year. The awards will be presented on Thursday, December 5 in San Mateo, California.

“These awards recognize the incredible value our National Laboratories deliver in the form of groundbreaking ideas that, if successful, stand to transform how we live our lives,” said U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry. “We are enormously proud of our Labs’ ability to continually redefine what’s possible, helping to ensure a more prosperous and secure future for our nation.”

Since 1962, when the annual competition began, DOE’s National Laboratories have received more than 900 R&D 100 Awards. The awards are selected by an independent panel of judges based on the technical significance, uniqueness, and usefulness of projects and technologies from across industry, government, and academia.

Many of these projects were developed in collaboration with private companies or academic institutions. Several projects engaged multiple National Laboratories. The list below shows the winning labs and their corresponding technologies. Visit R&D World for a complete list of winners.
