Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Technologies Available for Licensing
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is a U.S. Department of Energy national laboratory located in Berkeley, California and managed by the University of California. Multidisciplinary teams conducting unclassified research at Berkeley Lab continuously address global concerns with new discoveries in energy technologies and the environment as well as biotechnology, nanotechnology, imaging and advanced research tools.
In the field of energy efficiency and alternative energy resources, Berkeley Lab is noted for its expertise in:
- Biofuel production: feedstocks, deconstruction, fuel synthesis
- Artificial photosynthesis
- Hydrogen generation
- Energy efficient building materials and construction solutions
- Advanced materials for next-generation
- Solar cells
- Solar thermal devices
- Fuel cells
- Software for energy use analysis, energy exploration and biofuels research
Berkeley Lab's mission is "Bringing Science Solutions to the World." The Lab achieves its mission not only by developing world-class technologies but also through a robust technology transfer program that moves technologies into the marketplace for the greatest impact possible to society and the U. S. economy. Since 1990, Berkeley Lab technologies have provided the foundation for over 30 start-ups and 500 active licenses.
Berkeley Lab Technology Transfer (www.lbl.gov/tt) accomplishes its goal by developing and managing an array of partnerships with the private and public sectors. We license a wide range of technologies to companies with the financial, R & D, manufacturing, marketing, and managerial capabilities to successfully commercialize Lab inventions. In addition, we manage lab-industry research partnerships. As a result, technologies developed at Berkeley Lab have generated billions of dollars in revenues and thousands of jobs.
