A method to reduce weight and improve motors in electric vehicles. A new electrolyte that enables fast charging and high-energy density lithium batteries for electric vehicles. Improved software platforms to save millions of dollars in building energy costs.
These are a few of the 12 energy-related technologies developed at PNNL that were selected for additional technology maturation funding to help move them from the laboratory and field tests to the marketplace. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Technology Transitions (OTT) funds, combined with fifty percent matching funds from industry partners, bring the total award for PNNL-technologies to more than $9 million.
In total, DOE will provide more than $33 million in funding for 82 projects supported by the OTT’s Technology Commercialization Fund (TCF). TCF connects DOE’s national laboratories with private sector companies, which are critical for maturing and deploying emerging technologies to the marketplace.
