Energy Innovation Portal

In concert with NREL, EERE has developed the Energy Innovation Portal as a key tool for investors, entrepreneurs, and other technology seekers to rapidly filter and identify technologies that have been developed by DOE laboratories and are available for licensing. The portal provides streamlined searching and browsing of patents, patent applications, and marketing summaries for clean energy technologies from DOE laboratories and participating research institutions.

Portal users can:

  • Search thousands of clean energy related patents available for licensing as well as patent applications that have been created using DOE funding since 1992
  • Browse marketing summaries of energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies available for licensing organized into 14 technology areas
  • Sign up for e-mail updates
  • Link directly to the DOE laboratories that developed the available technologies to get more information.
