Whether you are speaking about the Koyoto Protocol or the 6th Power Plan, the objectives are the same – to reduce Green House Gas (GHG) emissions. Specific to the Pacific NW region, the 6th Power plan describes energy efficiency targets for the Northwest Region. There is a plethora of technologies that could directly impact the region’s ability to meet energy efficiency targets. It’s not enough to just develop a technology. In order for it to be effective and have an impact, the technology needs to be applied – without the technology transfer element these efficiencies cannot be realized. So what is the problem? Why aren’t these commercially available? The primary purpose of this research is to take the first steps at identifying the barriers of a successful technology transfer from National labs to the public.
