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. A Bidirectional, Transformerless Converter Topology for Grid-tied Energy Storage Systems

    SBC: Opcondys, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0001736

    Grid-tied energy storage systems provide stabilization to the electric grid that is necessary to accommodate the growing percentage of electricity generated by intermittent renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. Existing conversion systems between the storage media and the utility lines are large, costly and only 95%-98% energy efficient. In this ARPA-E project, Opcondys, Inc. will build ...

  4. Resonant voltage regulator architecture eliminates 30-50% energy consumption of digital ICs

    SBC: Empower Semiconductor Incorporated            Topic: DEFOA0001736

    Empower Semiconductor has developed a resonant integrated voltage regulator (IVR) technology that can dramatically improve the energy efficiency of any digital CMOS IC. As Moore’s law has advanced, the plexity and power needs of digital ICs has grown dramatically. The voltages required by these ICs have lowered and the resulting voltage accuracy needs have become more stringent. Existing voltage ...

  6. Hotspot Enabled Accurate Determination of Common Area Occupancy Using Network Tools (HEADCOUNT)

    SBC: ENDEVEO INC.            Topic: DEFOA0001738

    "We propose a disruptive, user-transparent occupancy sensor to accurately determine the presence of occupants in residential buildings to enable temperature setbacks and provide energy savings of over 30% per year. Our technique utilizes standard 802.11ac (or higher) commercially available WiFi-equipped devices such as routers, access points and Raspberry Pi’s (hotspots) as sensors to monitor a ...

  8. A stable, low cost, low power CO2 sensor for demand controlled ventilation

    SBC: Matrix Sensors, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0001738

    "We propose to develop a stable, low-cost, low power CO2 sensor module that meets the requirements of the ARPA-E SENSORS FOA, namely, 30 ppm precision over a dynamic range of 400 ppm to 2000 ppm with 10 ppm drift per year. Existing optical non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) CO2 sensors simply cannot scale to the cost and power requirements of the FOA. We therefore propose a solid state architecture ...

  10. Renewable electricity-powered carbon dioxide conversion to ethanol for storage and transportation

    SBC: Opus 12 Incorporated            Topic: DEFOA0001563

    Cost-effective electrochemical reduction of CO2 (ECO2R) in the atmosphere, is the holy grail of green chemistry. Using only water and electricity as other inputs, ECO2R has been demonstrated to produce ethanol with pure oxygen as a co-product. Ethanol is a versatile fuel that can be used in fuel cells, reformed to make hydrogen, or burned in an internal combustion engine. Ethanol produced from air ...
