  1. Energy Saving Through Advanced Photovoltaic Materials and Manufacturing Technology


    Todays conventional solar energy conversion technologies face serious problems, because of their combination of moderate efficiencies and high photovoltaic complexities, and because they are burdened with high manufacturing costs. For solar cells to be cost-competitive with other primary sources of energy such as oil- or coal-based electricity, solar energy must be captured and converted cost-effe ...

  2. Conversion of Algal Biomass to Drop-In Fuels

    SBC: TDA RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 02a

    This project will develop and evaluate a new process for converting algal biomass into renewable drop-in fuels. Renewable fuels are liquid fuels made from biomass that are a direct substitute for the standard, petroleum- derived fuels. For example, renewable diesel has a higher heat of combustion and a lower molecular weight than biodiesel (which is a methyl ester of fatty acids) and better cold f ...

  3. Advanced Hybrid Water-Heater using ECC

    SBC: Xergy Incorporated            Topic: 03c

    This proposal is based on a transformational and disruptive technology of utilizing electrochemical compression to operate heat pump cycles. Xergy Inc. has exhibited a demonstration unit of its Kuel-cell device, and engaged in thermodynamic simulations utilizing water as the working fluid in order to propose the use of this Kuel-cell technology for hybrid hot water systems. Simulations utilizing ...

  4. Direct Insertion Ground Loop Heat Exchanger

    SBC: Promethient Llc            Topic: 03d

    The Direct Insertion Ground Loop Heat Exchanger being developed by Promethient LLC responds to Topic 3, Subtopic d and addresses the issue GSHP ground loop cost reduction. The Principal Investigator for this program is Charles Cauchy. The cost of installing a ground loop for Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) systems is as much or more than the cost of the remainder of the hardware and labor to insta ...

  5. Fast-Payback Polymeric Solar Water Heaters with Controlled Heat Transfer


    Solar water heaters are an efficient means to harvest energy from the sun to heat water for domestic use (i.e. bathing, washing dishes, etc.). However, the current solar water heating systems cost approximately $133/ft2 and have a payback period of 7-10 years, including incentives and rebates, which is prohibitively expensive for most homeowners. The initial expense is largely attributed to th ...

  6. Low-Cost Flat Panel Solar Hot Water Heaters

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: 03e

    The U.S. Department of Energy is currently seeking technologies that can significantly decrease the cost of solar hot water heating systems. Mainstream Engineering Corporation is proposing to develop a low- cost, highly efficient solar collector that will significantly reduce the installed cost of solar water heating systems. Our proposed design eliminates a major design flaw with existing collec ...

  7. Pressure Sensitive Aerogel Bead with PCM for Building Envelopes

    SBC: ASPEN AEROGELS, INC.            Topic: 03f

    Todays buildings consume more energy than any other sector of the U.S. economy. Improving insulation of building envelopes offers an important means to reduce energy consumption. Advanced building envelope materials that can dramatically improve energy efficiency are needed including innovative higher performing insulations (R8/inch or 30% higher R-value than existing materials). DOE s ...

  8. Intelligent Building Controls Employing Adaptive Physical-System Models for Automatic Programming and Dynamic Commissioning

    SBC: Heliocentric LLC            Topic: 03g

    Existing building stock represents a significant opportunity for energy savings through efficiency measures, as it accounts for 41% of US energy use. Advanced control strategies and better systems commissioning offer the least expensive routes to energy savings by utilizing existing building infrastructure with only minimal additional investment cost. If a conservative estimate of 25% energy savin ...

  9. Optimizing the Cost and Performance of Composite Cylinders for H2 Storage using a Graded Construction


    The US DOE is very interested in promoting on-board vehicular hydrogen storage systems that will allow for a driving range of greater than 300 miles while meeting packaging, cost, safety, and performance requirements. The state-of-the-art H2 storage vessels that meet these requirements are too expensive to manufacture because of high carbon fiber costs. The Phase I/Phase II project will seek to re ...

  10. PV Module. Title: Optimal Multijunction Solar Cells for CPV under Realistic Conditions.

    SBC: Black Hills Nanosystems            Topic: 05a

    The proposed DoE STTR project will provide a pathway for terrestrial CPV (500 to 700 Suns) multi- junction solar cells that will maintain extremely high efficiencies at realistic operating temperatures. The thrust of the proposed project will adapt an integration approach from MEMS to III-V materials grown lattice-matched to gallium arsenide substrates. The efficiency advantages were found to be s ...
