ORNL energy innovation

Let's hope this is just the bow wave of a bigger funding for clean and renewable energy sources. On Friday, the U.S. Department of Energy announced in a release that Oak Ridge National Laboratory has gotten another $1.5 million to help "accelerate the movement of clean energy technologies" to the marketplace. Middle Tennessee's 'Mind2Marketplace' consortium will surely take note, given their aim of collaborating with ORNL and other Tennessee Valley actors. The latest stipend cannot be used for R&D, and must be used for prototype development, demonstration or actual deployment to market.
