  1. A Blockchain-enabled Peer-to-Peer Energy Trading Platform for Managing Complex Exchange of Kilowatt-hours and Negawatts

    SBC: BEMCONTROLS, LLC            Topic: 12c

    The structure of the electric utility business has long been a centralized model where an electric utility is the only authority selling electricity to, and buying excess rooftop PV generation, from customers. This is changing as utilities explore new business models including Distributed System Operator (DSO) models. On the other side of the meter, with the increasing penetration of rooftop solar ...

  2. A Concrete Additive Manufacturing Process for Fixed and Floating Wind Turbine Foundations and Towers

    SBC: JC Solutions            Topic: 14b

    Tall towers and foundations for modern offshore and land-based wind turbines are too large to transport over roads or rail due to their extremely large dimensions. Existing “one-off” on-site construction methods are too expensive, and are too slow for manufacturing foundations and towers in the large numbers needed, especially for offshore components manufactured in ports with limited lay-down ...

  3. Additive Manufacturing of Scalable 3D Resonators

    SBC: Global Research and Development Inc.            Topic: 29b

    This proposal is submitted in response to the SBIR/STTR Office of Science related to Quantum Information Science (QIS) Supporting Technologies. There is the need for fabrication techniques for scalable 3D Superconducting Radio Frequency (SRF) Structures for Quantum Information Systems. In this proposal we will develop an additive manufacturing approach to developing superconducting 3D microwave re ...

  4. Advanced Computation Methods towards High-Resolution Fiber Optic Distributed Acoustic Sensing

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: 21a

    Commercial-scale geothermal reservoirs are thousands of feet below the Earth’s surface, so scientists rely on indirect measurements to reconstruct 3D subsurface reservoir maps from seismic vibrations, electromagnetic waves, or gravity measurements. Geothermal operators typically use electromagnetic or gravity surveys, but seismic surveys are preferable because they enable higher-resolution 3D su ...

  5. Advanced Membranes for CO2 Capture from Existing Coal-fired Power Plants

    SBC: Nextech Materials, Ltd.            Topic: 24a

    Coal is an abundant source of energy in the USA, but is not currently utilized effectively. Recently, the DOE has begun a carbon sequestration program is to develop advanced CO2 capture and compression technology for existing coal-fired plants with increased efficiency with no more than a 35% increase in the cost of electricity. This will require new approaches and technologies to be successful. N ...

  6. Advanced Membrane Technology for Helium Recover

    SBC: Helios-NRG, LLC            Topic: 10d

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase 1 project will lead to the development of a simple, cost effective technology which can recover helium from gas reservoirs containing helium concentrations too low to permit economic recovery at present. This will enable helium recovery from fields currently producing natural gas but considered uneconomical for the recovery of the contained heli ...

  7. A Graphene Enhanced SiC- SiC Ceramic Composite Bonding Solution for Generation IV

    SBC: MC Technologies LLC            Topic: 20b

    Ceramic matrix SiC-SiC composites are currently the leading candidate for Generation IV nuclear reactor fuel cladding and other structural components, due to their excellent thermal and chemical stability under extreme conditions. However, robustly joining SiC structures when exposed to such harsh operating conditions still presents a major roadblock. A novel bonding joint compound leveraging grap ...

  8. A microfluidic ice nucleating particle counter for continuous measurements from small aerial platforms

    SBC: HANDIX SCIENTIFIC Inc.            Topic: 23a

    Quantifying atmospheric aerosol, clouds and precipitation processes are critical needs for understanding and interpreting Earth’s changing energy budget, is a DOE objective, and is of broader benefit to the public. Specifically, the formation of ice in the atmosphere depends on the nature and abundance of ice nucleating particles, and has major implications for precipitation and cloud interactio ...

  9. Amplifiers for High Repetition Rate Diode-Pumped Ultra-Intense Femtosecond Lasers

    SBC: XUV Lasers, Inc.            Topic: 25c

    The problem being addressed is the development of high intensity ultrashort pulse lasers, in recognition that today’s ultra-high intensity lasers are limited to repetition rates of < 10 Hz. Technical solutions are sought to enable the generation of high energy (joule-level) laser pulses that can be focused to highly relativistic intensity at high repetition rates (100-1000 Hz). The proposed proj ...

  10. Biological CO2 Fixation for the Production of Formic Acid Powered by Sugars

    SBC: Gate Fuels Incorporated            Topic: 12a

    Formic acid (FA, CH2O2) is the simplest carboxylic acid. It is mainly used as a preservative and antibacterial agent in livestock feed. A significant fraction of FA is used in the leather-processing, textile and rubber industries and a small fraction of formic acid is used as a cleaning agent replacing mineral acids. Aqueous FA is a promising liquid hydrogen-storage carrier with a hydrogen storage ...
