  1. Novel CO2 Sorbent Materials for Advanced Carbon Capture Technologies

    SBC: Advanced Energy Materials, LLC            Topic: 18d

    This project proposes the development of carbon capture technology for flue gases using a new class of solid adsorbents. The novel adsorbents proposed here are anticipated of having a high CO2 removal capacity (0.4 g g-1) at wide temperature range and fast regeneration process. In this project, Advanced Energy Materials, LLC (AdEM) proposes to develop the high performance CO2 adsorbents based on l ...

  2. Smart Meter Based Peer to Peer Transactions for Solar Energy Prosumers

    SBC: Blake-Philips, LLC            Topic: 12c

    Consumers want more choice in their ability to buy energy which has been produced by alternative sources such as solar power without the interaction of a third party. Meanwhile, the utilities which maintain the grid must know how much power is within their system. A network where energy transactions can be distributed anonymously and reconciled by any member of the network is desired. A smart-mete ...

  3. Hydrothermal Catalysis to Flow Process Brown Grease into Biofuels and Biochemicals

    SBC: SARTEC CORPORATION            Topic: 08a

    Brown grease, from trap grease and wastewater floatable mass, has substantial potential as a raw material to produce sustainable biofuels and biochemicals, but high sulfur, water, and impurities contents make processing difficult or end products outside of specifications. A good percentage of brown grease ends up in landfills. This project addresses the ability to turn brown grease into clean prod ...

  4. CO2 Plume Geothermal (CPG) and the Earth Battery-- Innovative Geothermal Power Production Using Non-water Working Fluids

    SBC: TerraCOH, Inc.            Topic: 11b

    In topic 11.b, Dispatchable Geothermal Operations, the Department of Energy (DOE) seeks to enable more widespread deployment of geothermal as a dispatchable energy source, permitting expansion of geothermal power in general and as a compliment to growing intermittent energy sources. TerraCOH’s CO2 Plume Geothermal (CPG™) and Earth Battery™ technologies are ideally suited to meet and exceed t ...

  5. Solar Guard

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: 12b

    The SolarGuard project will address the problem of detecting malicious data injection (MDI) attacks on power transmission systems handling solar power. Such attacks could cause the power transmission system to become unstable, leading to blackouts and cascade failures. MDI can also be used to perfom, high-level application attacks disrupting applications in Energy Control Centers, from Energy Mana ...

  6. Plug-In Hybrid Vehicle Optimization Using Vehicle-to-Cloud Connectivity

    SBC: Macchina, LLC            Topic: 13c

    Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) represent a growing segment of the U.S. passenger vehicle market. An increasing number of PHEV models are available to consumers. PHEVs are similar to parallel hybrid vehicles like the Toyota Prius in that they have an electric motor and internal combustion engine that are used synergistically to significantly reduce fuel consumption while maintaining a nea ...

  7. MC-HAMMER: Mission Control Highly Autonomous Mission Manager for Event Response

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF162006

    NASA has shown that automated mission planning and scheduling can increase satellite flexibility and operational tempo, increase satellite utilization, decrease both uplink and downlink requirements, and decrease operational costs. However, significant work is still required to transition NASA's existing automated mission planning software to Air Force satellite operations. The Air Force is ...
