DOE Laboratory Water Patents with a High Potential for Commercialization by the Private Sector

You are here

The Department of Energy (DOE) has been continuously engaged in the energy-water nexus since issuing The Water-Energy Nexus: Challenge and Opportunities in 2014. This factsheet contains a selection of patents from DOE’s National Laboratories that align with the energy-water initiative and have high potential for commercialization. A subset of these patents is eligible for a licensing discount based on energy and/or water savings under an energy-water licensing agreement developed by the DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
