The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Innovative Anchoring System for Floating Offshore Wind

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: 15a

    The cost of anchoring offshore floating wind turbines is an obstacle to reducing the cost of energy from offshore floating wind projects and presents an opportunity for savings. Deep water at sites on the West Coast further drives up these costs. Traditional anchoring systems use large heavy weights, casings, or high drag embedment forces to achieve high-pullout forces required for moorings. High ...

  2. Microfluidic Liquid-Liquid Extraction Chip with Integrated Spectroscopic Sensors

    SBC: Spectra Solutions, Inc.            Topic: 29h

    Nuclear power is the most environmentally benign way to produce electricity on a large scale. The successful use of nuclear power, however, is dependent upon adequate and safe processing and disposal of spent nuclear fuels. An important feature of nuclear energy is that spent fuels can be reprocessed to recover fissile and fertile materials and then used as fresh fuel for nuclear power plants. In ...

  3. High Temperature, Raman Spectroscopy Based, Inline, Molten Salt Composition Monitoring System for Concentrating Solar Power Systems

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 13a

    One of the key recommended research activities in a recent DOE development roadmap for next generation CSP plants (CSP Gen3) was to develop an in-situ molten salt composition/chemistry monitoring system. In-situ, real time, online monitoring is the first step in carefully controlling the salts’ composition which is key to achieving thermal performance and reducing corrosion kinetics and grain bo ...

  4. Supporting Multi-Physics Workflowsfor Advanced Nuclear Reactor Simulation

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 29d

    The US Department of Energy’s Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling and Simulation (NEAMS) Toolkithas accelerated both the solutions to existing problems and deployment of new designsfor current and advanced reactors. The task of coupling these tools into integrated workflows has now become a significant impediment to timely, cost-effective modeling and simulation for ad- vanced nuclear system design ...

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

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 20c

    The promise of fusion energy is enormous - an energy system whose fuel is obtained fromsimple ingredients, 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 fusion energy research. Such s ...

  6. Supramolecular Nanocellulose Drug Excipients

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: 09b

    Non-petroleum-based resources, such as nanocellulose derived from biofeedstock, are considered an attractive means to meet the increasing societal demand for value-added products. Utilization of these resources will steer the nation toward a self-sustainable bioeconomy, which is in alignment with Department of Energy’s mission to efficiently-utilize nanocellulose and convert it to commercially-v ...

  7. Novel Corrosion and Erosion Preventive Amorphous Alloys Coatings

    SBC: LM Group Holdings, Inc.            Topic: 13a

    Solar energy is the most potential renewable and sustainable energy source. To achieve high solar-to-electric conversion efficiency and enable cost competitiveness with conventional methods of electric power generation, the next generation of Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) systems is expected to operate at temperatures above 700°C. Molten chloride salts are identified as a highly promising heat t ...

  8. Production of High Value Products from Gaseous Waste Streams

    SBC: VISOLIS, INC            Topic: 09a

    Technologies that mitigate the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and that displace petroleum-based processes for fuel and chemical production are urgently needed to combat climate change. One promising strategy that can simultaneously accomplish both of these goalsis to use microbes to convert greenhouse gases present in industrial gaseous waste streams into chemicals and fuels that ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: Vacuum Glass for R10 Windows

    SBC: V-Glass LLC            Topic: 10a

    The one remaining barrier to achieving a marketable R-10 window is the high manufacturing cost of solderglass-sealed vacuum glass. To remedy this, edge seal material must be changed from meltable solderglass to cold-weldable aluminum foil, speeding up the manufacturing rate by over 700X. Phase I research showed that rod-shaped pane spacers, or whiskers, are the best shape available. They can enabl ...

  10. Automotive-qualified SiC DMOSFETs with integrated Schottky Rectifiers

    SBC: GENESIC SEMICONDUCTOR INC.            Topic: 14b

    Reducing the size, weight, and increasing the efficiency of automotive traction power inverters requires the development of novel high-voltage, high current silicon carbide high-speed transistors and rectifiers, since the existing silicon technology is severely limited in terms of operating temperature, frequency and energy efficiency. However, the non-optimized device and manufacturing technology ...
