Magnetic Gears? The Key to Efficient Ocean Current Energy Recovery

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Kent Davey, Dr.
Award Amount: $99,998.00
Abstract:
Given that the earth is more than 70% covered by water, the potential for converting these renewable resources to electricity is many times that of other resources. In the conversion of wave and water-current energy to electrical energy, gears are used as a convenient way to convert the slow-speed,… More

New Affordable Energy Storage Technologies for Power Grids and Micro-Grids

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: UT Center for Electromechanics
Principal Investigator: Tony Morris, President&CEO – (404) 386-4036
Award Amount: $495,332.00
RI Contact: Joseph H. Beno, PhD
Abstract:
Compared to Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) batteries, which have earned the largest share of the battery storage market, flywheel energy storage systems (FESS) offer significant advantages in cycle life, power density and turnaround efficiency for short charge/discharge times, but normally at a higher cost.… More
