WASHINGTON, September 20, 2017 - Energy Secretary Rick Perry announced $19.7 million in funding to partner with private-sector entities on energy technologies. The funds, offered through DOE’s Office of Technology, will support 54 projects across 12 National Laboratories. “Accelerating the transition of energy technologies from the laboratory bench to the marketplace is an important component of increasing America’s economic prosperity and energy security,” said Perry. “This second round of TCF (Technology Commercialization Fund) projects highlight the incredible value of DOE’s National Laboratories and the importance of bringing the department’s technology transfer mission to the American people.” DOE’s national labs have supported the critical research and development that led to many technologies in the marketplace today, including the batteries powering electric vehicles, the foundation of internet servers, and the optical digital recording technology behind DVDs.
