The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. New Approaches to Improved PEM Fuel Cell Catalyst Layer

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 17a

    Polymer-electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel-cells are one of the most promising energy conversion technologies for renewable clean energy applications- A major challenge preventing the widespread use and commercialization of PEM fuel cells is achieving high performance with low-loadings of platinum group metal (PGM) catalysts- One of the factors driving performance limitations in the cell is the mass ...

  3. Transparent Conductive Anodes for Solid-State Lighting

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 09b

    The U.S. Energy Information Administration estimates that in 2017, the U.S. residential sector and the commercial sector used about 273 billion kilowatthours of electricity for lighting. This was about 10% of the total electricity consumed by both of these sectors and about 7% of total U.S. electricity consumption. Residential lighting consumption was about 129 billion kilowatthours or about 9% of ...

  4. Membranes and Materials for Energy Efficiency; Subtopic c Title: Development of Corrosion Resistant Carbon Support for Ultra-low PGM Catalysts

    SBC: Greenway Energy LLC            Topic: 15c

    Carbon is used as a support material for both anode and cathode catalysts in state-of-the-art polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cells. Carbon support is susceptible to corrosion under the cathode operating conditions such as presence of oxygen and water, low pH, and high potential at the cathode interface. Corrosion of state-of-the-art carbon supports is inevitable, which leads to platinum c ...
