ORNL projects receive USD 8M

Oak Ridge National Laboratory was awarded more than USD 8M in technology maturation funding through the Department of Energy’s Technology Commercialization Fund, or TCF.

ORNL’s Technology Transfer Office engaged the lab’s research staff and managed their submission of 39 TCF project proposals in FY 2023. Of these, ORNL submitted 27 full applications and was awarded funding for 12 projects — a 44% success rate.

Andrea Bowers in the Strategic Partnerships Office manages the cooperative research and development agreement process for TCF projects.

The successful projects, principal investigators, and partners by call type include:

DOE’s Office of Technology Transitions oversees and implements DOE’s technology commercialization funds across its program offices to promote energy technologies for commercial purposes.

TCF comprises USD 35M in base annual appropriations plus the USD 62bn provided for research, development, demonstration, and commercial applications under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, or BIL, in 2021. BIL funds seek to engage a broad network of industry partners to speed the scaling of demonstration projects.
