Deadline Approaching for New LED Technology Licensing Applications
(January 24, 2014)
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – Fuentek, LLC, one of the world’s leading intellectual property (IP) and technology transfer consulting firms, recently assisted the Energy Department’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in producing a webinar about the technology transfer opportunity for NREL’s new Amber LEDs. NREL has been meeting with potential licensees and will be closing the submission period for submitting a licensing application on February 10.
NREL is quickly closing the LED “green gap” with its newest patent-pending technology that will make it easier to manufacture low-cost Amber LEDs. NREL’s Amber LEDs, when combined with red, green and blue LEDs, produce a broad-spectrum white light that is more efficient than current LEDs. The color-mixing approach avoids the energy loss associated with producing white light via conventional LEDs. This new technology will have an impact across multiple industries, including solid-state lighting, photovoltaics and lasers.
“The technology behind NREL’s Amber LEDs and the color-mixing approach has the power to revolutionize numerous markets for solid-state lighting between industries and businesses down to the consumer,” said Laura Schoppe, President of Fuentek, LLC. “We are seeing good industry interest in licensing this cutting-edge technology developed by NREL.”
