In other news from the University of Colorado, the school and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) recently announced six innovations they hope will be game-changers in the field of clean technology.
A wind energy radar and a solar wafer screening machine were included among the technologies featured at the CU Cleantech Incubation Open House, an event put together by CU’s Deming Center for Entrepreneurship, the school’s TTO, and its new CU Cleantech program, which is aimed at promoting and commercializing the university’s clean and renewable energy innovations. “Our goal,” says Cleantech board member and CEO of Skyfuel Rick LeBlanc, “is to make [Cleantech] the number one such organization at the university-level in the country.”
The six technologies featured at the open house were handpicked from 120 innovations developed at CU and NREL. The selected technologies will now go through CU Cleantech’s Market Assessment Program, in which a team of students, researchers and industry veterans will work to identify each invention’s commercial potential.
