The Office of Technology Transitions’ mission extends across DOE’s many programs, sites, and national laboratories. The links in this tab connect visitors with the numerous elements and resources that play a role in transitioning ideas into commercialized, impactful technologies.

One of the best ways to expand the commercial impact of the Department is raising awareness to investors and industry about the capabilities and expertise housed in the agency’s national laboratories and facilities. Under this tab, visitors can learn more about the world’s most advanced scientific facilities that are available for partnerships, and they can identify contacts at each of DOE’s national labs for questions and assistance.

Under this tab, visitors can learn more about patents, inventions, and promising technologies that are developed through DOE funding and partnerships as well as programs that support small businesses.

Visitors may connect to the 2015 Quadrennial Technology Review (QTR 2015), which examines the most promising research, development, demonstration, and deployment (RDD&D) opportunities to help address U.S. energy challenges. Additionally, they may learn about Public-Private Consortia and Technology Transition Case Studies, which are in the Supplement to Chapter 6 -- Innovating Clean Energy Technologies in Advanced Manufacturing.

Finally, there are links to the legal offices that assist with technology transitions and DOE's program offices that fund the research.
