Base Annual Appropriations TCF

The Base Annual Appropriations TCF is the base program created by the Energy Policy Act of 2005. This is an estimated $40 million annual program. OTT collaboratively works with participating program offices to support the commercialization of the DOE National Lab, plant, and site technologies and build out the National Lab commercialization ecosystem. 

Bipartisan Infrastructure Law TCF

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) provided more than $62 billion to DOE for Research, Development, Demonstration, & Commercial Application. Under this BIL TCF program, OTT is working collaboratively across relevant DOE program offices to pursue activities that broadly support the commercialization of promising energy technologies. OTT seeks to cultivate a broader innovation network around the BIL provision activities to enable faster replication and scaling of demonstration projects.
