A data dictionary and additional information is located on the Data Resource Page. Files are refreshed monthly.
The SBIR.gov award data files now contain the required fields to calculate award timeliness for individual awards or for an agency or branch. Additional information on calculating award timeliness is available on the Data Resource Page.
SBC: Soraa Topic: N/A
Soraa will develop a cost-effective technique to manufacture high-quality, high-performance gallium nitride (GaN) crystal substrates that are better than today’s GaN crystal substrates, which are expensive and prone to defects. Soraa will also develop pathways to large-area GaN substrates that can handle power switch applications. Substrates are thin wafers of semiconducting material needed for ...SBIR Phase I 2014 Department of EnergyARPA-E
SBC: GLINT PHOTONICS, INC. Topic: DEFOA0001256
Concentrator PV systems using highly efficient multijunction photovoltaic cells hold out the promise of very low-cost solar electricity generation, but their adoption has been hamstrung by the requirement for bulky mechanical trackers that add cost, diminish land use, increase maintenance, and exclude roof-top installations. The Stationary Wide-Angle Concentrator (SWAC) PV system will provides the ...SBIR Phase I 2015 Department of EnergyARPA-E
SBC: TWELVE BENEFIT CORPORATION 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 ...SBIR Phase I 2017 Department of EnergyARPA-E
SBC: NANOSD, INC. Topic: DEFOA0001429
NanoSD, Inc. with its partners will develop a transparent, nanostructured thermally insulating film that can be applied to existing single-pane windows to reduce heat loss. To produce the nanostructured film, the team will create hollow ceramic or polymer nanobubbles and consolidate them into a dense lattice structure using heat and compression. Because it is mostly air, the resulting nanobubble s ...SBIR Phase I 2016 Department of EnergyARPA-E
SBC: Storagenergy Technologies, Inc. Topic: DEFOA0001563
Ammonia is not only one of the most produced chemicals worldwide for fertilizer, but also a real carbon-neutral liquid fuel (CNLF), which is important for renewable energy storage and transportation. The well-known traditional Haber-Bosch (HB) process annually generates more than 120 million metric tons of ammonia for fertilizer, with about ~1.0% of the world’s annual energy consumpti ...SBIR Phase I 2017 Department of EnergyARPA-E
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 ...SBIR Phase I 2018 Department of EnergyARPA-E
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 ...SBIR Phase I 2018 Department of EnergyARPA-E
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 ...SBIR Phase I 2018 Department of EnergyARPA-E
SBC: Frost Methane Labs Co. Topic: T
Methane emissions are responsible for 20% of greenhouse gas warming. A proven, economical way of mitigating these emissions is to find high-flow methane sources and convert the methane stream into carbon dioxide, using flares or generators, mitigating 96% of the warming effects. We propose to develop a miniature methane flare, capable of handling emissions from sources in the range of 10-200 tonne ...SBIR Phase I 2021 Department of EnergyARPA-E
SBC: Living Carbon PBC Topic: T
Carbon drawdown and retention in terrestrial biomass is currently limited by the rate of photosynthetic assimilation and of decay of lignocellulosic biomass respectively. Living Carbon is developing innovative methods of reducing the susceptibility of vegetative biomass to decay by lignotrophic fungi, thereby reducing the rate of release of carbon dioxide back to the atmosphere through fungal resp ...SBIR Phase I 2021 Department of EnergyARPA-E
