  1. Over-Molded Plates for Reduced Cost and Mass PEM Fuel Cells 11A

    SBC: American Fuel Cell LLC            Topic: 11a

    The polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells membrane electrode assemblies market was valued at $460 million in 2014, with expected growth of approximately 29.4% until 2020. However, using established manufacturing methods, the scaled commercial cost of bipolar plate in automotive polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells is over two times higher than the US DoE 2020 target. A new cost-focused approa ...

  2. High-field Second Generation Cable with Sub-millimeter Filaments

    SBC: Brookhaven Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: 26a

    Second-generation high temperature superconductors (2G-HTS) enable ultra-high field magnets for research and industrial applications. However, 2G-HTS wires are currently manufactured as ~ 10 mm wide tapes. Such wide tape is mechanically difficult to wind and because of its width, the tape incurs high hysteresis losses and suffers poor quench stability. Brookhaven Technology Group, Inc. (BTG) propo ...

  3. Development of the ultra-low loss superconducting resonators integrated with detectors for frequency-domain multiplexing readout of future Cosmic Microwave Background experiments

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: 28f

    Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) use polarization sensitive detectors to study the early universe. The number of such detectors needed for field deployed CMB experiments has been growing steadily from 1000 (stage-II) to 10,000 (stage-III) and projected stage IV experiments are to include 100,000 detectors. The Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel (P5) outlined a strategic plan for US par ...

  4. PyVERAin: An Open Source, Python-based CASL Preprocessing Platform for Reactor Geometry, Code Discretizations, and Parallel Domain Decompositions

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 29c

    In 2015, the US electricity generation was about 4 trillion kilowatt-hours (kWh) gross with 797.2 billion kWh (19.5%) generated from nuclear power reactors. The US currently has 99 nuclear power reactors, 65 pressurized water reactors (PWRs) and 34 boiling water reactors (BWRs), operated by 29 different power companies. Almost all the US nuclear generating capacity comes from reactors built betwee ...

  6. Integrated, Interoperable Software Environment for Fusion Simulation and Data Analysis Tools

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 29d

    The promise of fusion energy is enormous—an energy system whose fuel is obtained from simple ingredients such as seawater and lithium, and which yields zero carbon emissions to the atmosphere. However, realizing this vision requires undertaking one of the most challenging programs of scientific research and development that has ever been undertaken. Predictive simulation plays a crucial role in ...

  8. Photothermal Solar Cell

    SBC: Aquaneers Inc            Topic: 09c

    Water and energy are critically-linked resources. Shortages of water or energy can result in severe and rapid distress to communities, which is an increasingly common occurrence in certain locals. Technologies that can harvest energy and water using locally available resources without damaging the environment are sought to increase sustainability at the energy-water nexus. Aquaneers is pioneering ...
