3 ways for National Labs to operate with a lower financial basel

I would like to recommend:


1) Use of Bloom Energy Servers to supplement regional power generation - these use natural gas in a combustionless means which strips electrons from the gas molecules


2) More aggressive use of patents and licensing of technologies borne from research - large corporations can generate up to 20% of their operating costs using passive income from licensing revenue


3) More aggressive use of computing technologies which leverage virtualization - this will speed provisioning, allow for better fault tolerance, more consistent performance
