The National Consortium for the Advancement of LDES Technologies provides the forum through which stakeholders across the LDES ecosystem to convene and identify barriers, determine potential synergies, and collaboratively develop and implement strategies necessary to achieve LDES technology commercialization within the next decade.
The LDES National Consortium will be comprised of National Laboratory and U.S. industry and community stakeholders, known as “Teaming Partners.” Teaming Partners are invited to participate directly in “Tiger Teams,” which are given assignments to identify and evaluate challenges in the specific focus areas impacting LDES and develop public stakeholder recommendations to address these challenges. The output will be a comprehensive plan for LDES commercialization that can be offered to diverse regions, markets, communities, and end-use customers. The Tiger Teams will be populated with representatives from across the LDES ecosystem to ensure that the recommendations produced are comprehensive.
At this time, the following Tiger Teams have been established and are actively engaged in identifying and assessing industry challenges and preparing practical recommendations to address these challenges.
