  1. Co-Development of Oscillating Water Column (OWC) and Offshore Power Station

    SBC: ROI Engineering LLC            Topic: 13c

    In response to the Water Power Technologies Office “Co-Development of Marine Energy Technologies at Smaller Scales.” We propose a co-development of an “Oscillating Water Column” and the “Offshore Power Station”. This proposal is to design a small scale Oscillating Water Column to provide the “offshore energy” as described as one of the activities needed in the “blue economy”. W ...

  2. Development of Wakefield Accelerating Structures at Ultra-high Frequencies

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 30c

    The development of a multi-TeV e+e- linear collider is a key priority set by the P5 panel, which established the long-term strategy of the U.S. HEP program. A Two-Beam Acceleration (TBA) is one of the most promising approaches for this facility due to its potential for achieving high efficiency and the ability to accelerate particles with positive and negative charges. However, there are still cha ...

  3. Preventing Biofouling of Oceanographic Sensors Using UV Illumination Powered by a Compact Wave Energy Converter

    SBC: 3newable LLC            Topic: 13c

    Electrical power is scarce at most offshore locations, so oceanographers design buoy systems to consume very little power in order to reduce the frequency of ship voyages to replace batteries. These expensive voyages can cost several tens of thousands of dollars per day. Solar and wind power can recharge batteries, but harvested power is limited and each source has shortcomings. Wave energy operat ...

  4. Fast, Low Kerf-loss Wafering of Silicon Ingots for Low-cost Solar Power

    SBC: Nielson Scientific LLC            Topic: 11b

    Silicon wafers are the single largest cost component within solar photovoltaic modules. To maintain the cost reduction targets outlined in industrial roadmaps, wafer costs need to be significantly reduced. Reducing the cost of wafers requires reducing the kerf-loss and wafer thickness while increasing throughput in tools for processing silicon ingots into wafers. The proposed technology augments t ...

  5. Biorecovery of Nutrients from Municipal Wastewaters with Co-production of Biofuels and Other Bioproducts

    SBC: Microbio Engineering, Inc            Topic: 07a

    Nutrient pollution of lakes, estuaries, coastal areas and other water bodies frequently results in algae blooms, sometimes toxic, and often leading to anoxia, fish kills and dead zones. Efforts to reign-in nutrient pollution, in particular of phosphorus, P, have been lagging and noxious algae blooms make headlines almost daily all over the US and world. This is a problem attracting increasing atte ...

  6. An Advanced Simulation based 3D Framework and Toolkit for Fire Protection and Fire PRA

    SBC: CENTROID PIC INC            Topic: 37i

    At 10.8% Compound annual growth rate(CAGR), Fire Protection Systems Market Size is expected to reach 9.34 Bn USD by 2025. This however reflects only the systems but does not include the services, consultancy and other operator expenses incurred by the industry sectors impacted. Modeling and implementing fire safety for nuclear power plants is an expensive and complex activity. It is difficult to c ...

  7. Protonic Ceramic Membranes with Unprecedented Electrochemical Efficiency

    SBC: FuelCell Energy, Inc.            Topic: 19c

    Wind and solar electricity are gaining traction in the marketplace, but the electricity available from these sources is out of synch with demand Protonic ceramic electrochemical cells (PCECs) operating at intermediate temperatures (400 - 650°C) have enormous potential for electricity storage and delivery by reversible operation between electrolysis and fuel cell modes and therefore stand to addre ...

  8. Spectral Near-Infrared and Thermal Infrared Imaging for Advanced Estimation of Thermal and Geochemical Soil-Plant-Water Properties

    SBC: Bayspec, Inc.            Topic: 26a

    The spatiotemporal quantification of coupled hydro-biogeochemical processes between soil, plant, and atmosphere requires advances in remote sensing technologies and in understanding the link between the measured signals (ie spectral traits) and the hydro-biochemical properties While current UAV-based remote sensing technologies provide spectral reflectance in the visible- short wave infrared (VSWI ...

  9. Large Diffraction Grade Single Crystal Diamonds Grown by CVD

    SBC: Great Lakes Crystal Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 12a

    Large size diffraction-grade diamond is needed for high scientific impact applications at synchrotron and Free-Electron Laser (FEL) X-ray sources, stemming from diamond’s unique physical properties in low atomic number and extremely high thermal diffusivity Sufficiently large diffraction-grade diamond crystals, similar in crystalline quality to that of silicon, are required for the fabrication o ...
