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.

The Office of Technology Transitions’ mission extends across DOE’s many programs, sites, and national laboratories. The pages under this tab connect visitors with the numerous resources and elements that reflect the work and successes of our technology transition efforts, as well as the offices and laboratories at the heart of this endeavor.

Here, visitors may explore various Department success stories in technology transfer. OTT compiles these stories from selected DOE-derived research projects that have resulted in commercial outcomes and successful public-private relationships.

Data collection and analysis is an important activity for OTT. We continuously track more than 70 technology transfer-related metrics from across all of DOE’s laboratories, sites, and facilities to develop annual, statutorily mandated, technology transfer-related reports. This data helps establish clear goals and objectives for the labs, partners, and Department by facilitating the evaluation of best practices and effective metrics, overall enhancing the mission of the DOE.

Visitors may also review our various reports associated with the office and the Department. These include our Annual Review and Execution Plans, as well as our technology spotlight reports.

Finally, there are links to DOE's Program Offices that fund and assist the research of our technology transition efforts. These offices are great resources for additional information about the Department and its programs.
