                     Ms. MURKOWSKI, from the Committee on Energy and Natural
                                 Resources, submitted the following


                                         [To accompany S. 1799]
                    The Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, to which was
                  referred the bill (S.1799) to amend the Energy Policy Act of 2005
                  to facilitate the commercialization of energy and related tech-
                  nologies developed at Department of Energy facilities with prom-
                  ising commercial potential, having considered the same, reports fa-
                  vorably thereon without amendment, and recommends that the bill
                  do pass.
                    The purpose of S. 1799 is to facilitate the commercialization of
                  energy and related technologies developed at Department of Energy
                  (DOE) facilities with promising commercial potential.
                                      BACKGROUND AND NEED
                    Congress directed technology transfer to be a part of the mission
                  of federal government research agencies beginning in the 1980s.
                  Since that time, DOE     has led  the federal government in
                  transitioning technologies to outside entities for commercialization
                  through the use of a variety of mechanisms, including Cooperative
                  Research and Development Agreements, Strategic Partnership
                  Project Agreements, and the licensing of intellectual property.
                    Improving the ability to transition technologies from DOE to the
                  private sector continues to be a focus of Congress and the Depart-
                  ment. S. 1799 provides another means to enable national labora-
                  tories to work with the private sector, and especially small busi-
                  nesses, to commercialize innovative energy technologies.
