Working at OTT

Help build our clean energy future and enable the commercialization of exciting new technologies with a career in the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Technology Transitions (OTT). At OTT, we manage programs, tools, and funding opportunities to advance groundbreaking scientific discoveries and commercialize transformative technologies within the research, development, demonstration, and deployment continuum. 

Commercialization is a core part of DOE's mission. The public dollars the department invests in its technology portfolio can only achieve their impact when technologies leave the lab to attain full-scale deployment. Learn more about our mission.

Join our team as we foster strong partnerships that guide innovations from the lab toward the marketplace and accelerate the private sector uptake of clean energy technologies.
