New Ideas for Strengthening Partnerships at DOE National Labs

The Energy Department’s national laboratories are extraordinary, large-scale repositories of technical capabilities and expertise, but to contribute more effectively to clean-energy innovation, they need to be better connected to private sector partners who can bring technologies to maturity. Two promising ideas for providing such connections are the proposed Impact for Energy Foundation and the pilot small business voucher program. The former would make it easier for companies and philanthropists to work collaboratively with intramural teams at DOE labs. The latter provides small businesses that need sophisticated insights with no-cost access to lab experts who can accelerate their innovations.
