U.S. Department of Energy Projects Win 36 R&D 100 Awards for 2012

June 21, 2012

U.S. Department of Energy researchers have won 36 of the 100 awards given out this year by R&D Magazine for the most outstanding technology developments with promising commercial potential. The coveted awards—now in their 50thyear —are presented annually in recognition of exceptional new products, processes, materials or software that were developed throughout the world and introduced into the market the previous year.

"Congratulations to this year's R&D 100 award winners," said Energy Secretary Steven Chu. "The research and development at the Department of Energy's laboratories continue to help the nation meet our energy challenges, strengthen our national security and improve our economic competitiveness."

The R&D 100 awards highlight some of the successes achieved by the Department's national laboratories in technology transfer, moving basic research results into commercial products.

Since 1962, when R&D Magazine's annual competition began, DOE national laboratories have been the recipient of over 800 R&D 100 awards in areas such as energy, national security and basic scientific applications.

R&D 100 awards are selected by an independent panel of judges based on the technical significance, uniqueness and usefulness of projects and technologies from across industry, government and academia. View the complete list of R&D 100 awards.
