IMPEL+, Incubating Market-Propelled Entrepreneurial-Mindset at the Labs and Beyond, is a program funded by U.S. Department of Energy’s Building Technologies Office (BTO), and implemented by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab).

The IMPEL+ vision is to integrate market-oriented skillsets with advanced scientific thinking of National Lab scientists, academics, researchers, entrepreneurs, and small businesses. The goal is to focus early stage buildings innovations and programs on market gaps, and catalyze them towards public and private sector engagement and impact. This program seeks to bridge gaps between upstream R&D and market needs.
