Berkeley Lab to Collaborate with Small Businesses to Commercialize Clean Energy Products

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) will partner with four clean energy small businesses to accelerate buildings and vehicle technologies as part of the Small Business Vouchers (SBV) pilot launched by DOE.

The SBV pilot is a collaborative national effort that will provide up to $20 million in vouchers to eligible small businesses across nine energy technology areas (advanced manufacturing, buildings, bioenergy, fuel cells, solar, fuel cells, geothermal, vehicles, water, and wind). The goal of the pilot is to provide access to world-class laboratory resources to help move innovative ideas and technologies in clean energy closer to scalable commercialization.

“The Department of Energy is firmly committed to maximizing the impact of the national lab system on the clean energy economy,” said David Danielson, Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. “The Small Business Vouchers pilot allows innovative entrepreneurs greater access to the world-class resources and brilliant minds in our labs. These partnerships can help small businesses solve their most pressing technical challenges—and help bring clean energy technologies to commercialization much faster.”
