Sandia is partnering with New Mexico State University, Los Alamos National Laboratory and the New Mexico Economic Development Department to create a new pipeline for energy technology to reach the market using funding from the Department of Energy.

DOE awarded $1 million in Energy Program for Innovation Clusters funding to the regents of New Mexico State University in June. The funding will be used by the university to work with regional stakeholders on new programming through the New Mexico Clean Energy Resilience and Growth Cluster. Together, the university’s Arrowhead Center technology transfer office, Sandia and Los Alamos national laboratories and the New Mexico Economic Development Department plan to help startups commercialize clean energy technologies.

“This funding builds on already established partnerships to heighten the impact Sandia researchers have outside the labs, which in turn will strengthen the economy and enable the private sector to press forward in solving challenging issues,” said Mary Monson, Sandia senior manager of technology partnerships and business development.
