New Air Conditioner Process Cuts Energy Use 50-90%

DaveKAO Publicly owned patents (445 comments)


"NREL has patented the DEVap concept, and Kozubal expects that over the next couple of years he will be working on making the device smaller and simpler and perfecting the heat transfer to make DEVap more cost effective.

Eventually, NREL will license the technology to industry, "We're never going to be in the air conditioner manufacturing business", said Ron Judkoff, Principle Program Manager for Building Energy Research at NREL. "But we'd like to work with manufacturers to bring DEVap to market and create a more efficient and environmentally benign air conditioning product." "

Anyone else bothered that a publicly funded organization now owns a patent to this 'new' technology?
