Mr. Antonio M. Bouza is a senior commercialization program manager within the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Office of Technology Transitions (OTT). In this position, he works with DOE program offices and national laboratories to develop and manage technology agnostic funding programs and activities seeking to bring impactful energy technologies to market such as the Technology Commercialization Fund (TCF). 

Prior to joining the OTT, he spent over 20 plus years working for DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy in several offices, the Building Technologies Office (BTO), Advanced Manufacturing Office and the Hydrogen, Fuel Cells, and Infrastructure Technologies Program. With over 19 years of building technologies experience, ranging from federal regulation (energy efficiency standards) to Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC), Water Heating and Appliance research activities. His award-winning portfolio included four R&D 100 awards, often referred to as the “Oscars of Innovation”, and one being an Editor’s Choice Award (given to the top three technologies winners each year). His commercialization background includes over a dozen technologies in the marketplace today, including the heat pump water heater used in his home today.
