For individuals or small businesses, developing an energy-saving invention can be a lengthy and challenging process. Innovative new technologies are sometimes lucky enough to be born into a supportive, nurturing environment with ample resources to help the technology survive and grow and eventually reach the market. In comparison, being on your own means you are ultimately responsible for directing the development of the technology, finding the needed capital, choosing the best intellectual property strategy and the resources to implement it, and most importantly, getting paid for it. The resources below provide access to a broad array of information and technical and financial resources at the state, regional, and national levels, in both the public and private sectors that may be able to assist inventors and businesses that are engaged in the development and commercialization of energy technology.
