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
    • Batteries
    • Solar cells
    • Solar thermal devices
    • Catalysts
    • 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 40 start-ups and hundreds of licenses that have generated billions of dollars in revenues and thousands of jobs.

The Innovation and Partnerships Office (IPO) leads Berkeley Lab’s efforts to transition technologies from the Lab to the marketplace for the benefit of society and the U. S. economy by 1) executing exclusive and non-exclusive licenses and options to Lab-developed technologies with established businesses and startups and 2) partnering with industry through collaborative research in areas of Berkeley Lab expertise to develop technologies suited to business needs or to advance scientific discovery.
