  1. Nanoionic Thermoelectric Regeneration

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: 01b

    The DOEs Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is seeking to support development of advanced thermoelectric (TE) technologies for waste heat recovery in buildings, industry, and vehicle applications to generate electricity efficiently and cost-competitively because these typically low temperature waste heat flows do not provide enough temperature difference to support conventiona ...

  2. Aerogel Impregnated Polyurethane Piping and Duct Insulation

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: 01d

    Currently, commercial and residential buildings account for two-fifths of the nations primary energy usage and over one-third the nations carbon emissions. The DOE wishes to reduce the current carbon footprint of housing. Legislation is currently being developed to inspire energy savings and carbon reduction in both the residential and commercial building markets. Technological advances for effici ...

  3. High-Throughput Screens and Selections for Microbially Produced Diacids

    SBC: Lygos, Inc.            Topic: 02c

    Production of renewably sourced industrial chemicals using microbial production processes requires extensive strain engineering to improve strain titers (g/L), productivities (g/L/hr), and yields (g-product/g-feedstock). Microbial strains are typically optimized by screening for incremental improvements in production using high-throughput screening or selection assays; however, this remains exceed ...

  4. Alternative Fiber Evaluation and Optimization of Filament Winding Processing


    At the present time, relatively few components for onboard hydrogen storage are commercially available and manufactured. Todays 700 bar (10,000 psi) compressed hydrogen storage systems have demonstrated the capability to provide sufficient capacity to enable fuel cell vehicles to achieve a real-world driving range of over 300 miles. While the technology is being used in limited quantities and test ...

  5. Highly Efficient Thin Film Tandem Solar Cells

    SBC: PLANT PV            Topic: 05a

    The nations future energy supply, loss of its manufacturing base to foreign countries, and global climate change are three of our countrys most urgent problems. Renewable energy sources that can be cost effectively implemented on a large scale, domestically produced and have minimal impact on the environment are necessary for the countrys health, security and prosperity. Three-terminal, chalcogeni ...

  6. Holographic Building Integrated Photovoltaics

    SBC: Luminit LLC            Topic: 05b

    U.S. Department of Energy is seeking a solution that both replaces the old building material or structure and adds photovoltaic generation. Integrating photovoltaics into building structures opens the door to numerous new energy conversion design possibilities, from curved form factors for aesthetics, PV surfaces that can flex with underlying structures or photovoltaics that fit odd spaces. In ord ...

  7. A Novel PHM and CBM System for Wind Turbine Drivetrains Based on Magnetoelastic Torque and Rate-of-Change-of-Torque Sensing

    SBC: Magcanica, Inc.            Topic: 07g

    Gearbox failure on a wind turbine is a major event that can have drastic costs associated with it, both through lost power production during down-time and through repair and labor costs, in particular when the wind turbine is located in a remote or offshore location. As the sizes of wind-turbines continue to increase and their locations become ever more difficult to access (e.g. trend toward 4-5MW ...

  8. Large-Area Semipolar Ammonothermal GaN Substrates for High-Power LEDs

    SBC: Soraa            Topic: 08c

    Soraa proposes to develop low-cost, large area semipolar ammonothermal true bulk GaN substrates. Semipolar bulk GaN substrates are expected to be transformative for high power blue, green, and/or yellow LEDs, enabling high efficiency, high power density LEDs at costs below $3/kilolumen. The large cost reduction will enable widespread implementation of high-efficiency semipolar LEDs, enabling energ ...

  9. Minimizing Fuel Assembly Distortion in LWRs to Prolong Life and Increase LWR Sustainability

    SBC: Ceramic Tubular Products            Topic: 20c

    Topic 20c of DOEs SBIR solicitation seeks grant applications to develop technologies for the assessment and mitigation of materials degradation in Light Water Reactors in order to extend the service life including methods that can mitigate or predict irradiation and aging effects An important degradation phenomenon that limits the service life and energy production of Light Water Reactor (LWR) ...

  10. Computational Design of Weldable High-Cr Ferritic Steel

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: 22c

    Increasing the steam temperature of supercritical boilers from 1,000F to 1,400F can raise the operating efficiency of next-generation AUSC coal-fired power plants from about 32% to about 42% and address compelling environmental issues, while also enhancing national security, domestic employment, economic stability, balance of trade and U.S. GDP through increased use of domestic coal. Low Cr conten ...
