Award List:

Heat Pump Water Heater using Solid-State Energy Converters

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Uttam Ghoshal, Dr. – 512-413-8955
Award Amount: $149,950.00
Abstract:
Water heating is the second largest source of energy consumption in a household. Almost half of the homes in the United States use electricity to heat their water and all but a few use resistive heater based water heaters which consume a large amount of electricity. It is possible to use heat pumps… More

High Efficiency Thin Film Thermoelectric Generators (HiE TFTEGs) for Vehicles

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Research Institution: Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Uttam Ghoshal, Dr.
Award Amount: $149,977.00
RI Contact:
Abstract:
A significant portion of the waste heat from engine exhaust can be recovered using thermoelectric generators to achieve up to 10% gain in automotive mileage. There have been several efforts underway on this front but most have focused on demonstrating thermoelectric generators using bulk materials… More

Ultra-efficient Thermoelectric Cooling Module for Satellite Thermal Management

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2014 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Uttam Ghoshal, CEO/CTO – (512) 413-8955
Award Amount: $149,959.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Current waste heat management technologies from satellite payload including the sensor, control and actuators, are bulky and energy inefficient because they cannot provide on-demand site-specific cooling. Fluidic systems are not desirable for satellite applications due to leakage issues.… More

Heat Pump Water Heater using Solid-State Energy Converters

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2014 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Uttam Ghoshal, Dr.
Award Amount: $999,950.00
Abstract:
Water heating is the second largest source of energy consumption in a household. Almost half of them are electricity based which are quite inefficient. Current crop of heat pump water heaters are too expensive to make a meaningful impact on the situation. This is the overall objective of the… More
