NREL uses industry best practices to add partners
Date:8/6/2014

pilot for using DOE's newest agreement type: the Agreement to Commercialize Technology (ACT). NREL is one of six national laboratories currently piloting the use of ACT, which was created to address requests by industry for flexibility in partnership agreement terms beyond what is available under a CRADA or work-for-others (WFO) agreement.

Anne Miller of NREL's Technology Transfer Office noted two of the most recent agreements with NREL developed out of opportunities that would most likely not have been available if ACTs were not an option.

Because ACTs are aligned with industry practices in areas such as intellectual property rights, indemnification, and payment issues, these agreements allow national laboratories such as NREL to more easily negotiate contract terms with potential partners to accommodate unique organizational requirements or project needs.

"For example, a company may need special provisions to address participation by multiple organizations or expectations regarding project performance," Miller said. "ACTs allow us to negotiate terms with much more flexibility than the standard agreement types and also allow us to pursue some opportunities we might not otherwise have been able to pursue."

Under NREL's first ACT, the lab will supply technical services to the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), an intergovernmental organization that supports countries in their transition to a sustainable energy future. Signed on March 7, 2014, IRENA's ACT with NREL outlines how the laboratory will develop computer code for IRENA's geospatial data interface of the Global Atlas for Renewable Energy, which will support renewable energy technology project development, planning, siting, and feasibility analysis.

NREL's second ACT was signed with the Children's Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF), which aims to improve the lives of children in developing countries through impactful and sustainable projects. Under this
