    University of California Berkeley (UC Berkeley)

    Metal Organic Framework Research

    UC Berkeley is developing a method for identifying the best metal organic frameworks for use in capturing CO2 from the flue gas of coal-fired power plants.
    University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley)

    Rapid Building Energy Modeler - RAPMOD

    University of California Berkeley (UC Berkeley) and Indoor Reality are developing a portable scanning system and the associated software to rapidly generate indoor thermal and physical building maps.
    Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL)

    Turning Bacteria into Biofuel

    LBNL is improving the natural ability of a common soil bacteria called Ralstonia eutropha to use hydrogen and carbon dioxide for biofuel production. First, LBNL is genetically modifying the bacteria to produce biofuel at higher concentrations.

    University of California Berkeley (UC Berkeley)

    Measuring Phase Angle Change in Power Lines

    UC Berkeley is developing a device to monitor and measure electric power data from the grid's distribution system.

    Oil from Tobacco Leaves

    LBNL is modifying tobacco to enable it to directly produce fuel molecules in its leaves for use as a biofuel.
    Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL)

    Hydrogen-Bromine Flow Battery

    LBNL is designing a flow battery for grid storage that relies on a hydrogen-bromine chemistry which could be more efficient, last longer, and cost less than today's lead-acid batteries.
    Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL)

    MEMS Based Drivers For Fusion

    Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), in coordination with Cornell University, will develop a driver for magneto-inertial fusion based on ion beam technology that can be manufactured with low-cost, scalable methods.
    Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL)

    Enzymes for Methane Conversion

    Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) is genetically engineering a bacterium called Methylococcus in order to produce an enzyme that binds methane with a common fuel precursor to create a liquid fuel.
    AutoGrid Systems

    Integration of Renewables via Demand Management

    AutoGrid, in conjunction with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Columbia University, will design and demonstrate automated control software that helps manage real-time demand for energy across the electric grid.

    GE Global Research

    Water-Based Flow Battery for EVs

    GE is developing an innovative, high-energy chemistry for a water-based flow battery. A flow battery is an easily rechargeable system that stores its electrode--the material that provides energy--as liquid in external tanks.
    Metis Design Corporation (MDC)

    Advanced Microturbine Engine for Residential CHP

    Metis Design Corporation (MDC) with Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory will develop a Brayton cycle engine for residential use to produce heat and electricity. To begin the cycle, air is drawn into the system where it is compressed and pressurized.
    California Institute of Technology (CalTech)

    Micro-Optical Tandem Luminescent Solar Concentrator

    Researchers at the California Institute of Technology (CalTech) and their partners will design and fabricate a new CPV module with features that can capture both direct and diffuse sunlight.
    Texas Engineering Experiment Station (TEES)

    Automated Grid Disruption Response System

    The RATC research team is using topology control as a mechanism to improve system operations and manage disruptions within the electric grid.
    Architectural Applications (A2)

    Energy Efficient Building Ventilation Systems

    A2 is developing a building moisture and heat exchange technology that leverages a new material and design to create healthy buildings with lower energy use. Commercial building owners/operators are demanding buildings with greater energy efficiency and healthier indoor environments.
    Applied Materials

    New Electrode Manufacturing Process Equipment

    Applied Materials is developing new tools for manufacturing Li-Ion batteries that could dramatically increase their performance.
    Palo Alto Research Center (PARC)

    Innovative Manufacturing Process for Li-Ion Batteries

    PARC is developing a new way to manufacture Li-Ion batteries that reduces manufacturing costs and improves overall battery performance. Traditionally, Li-Ion manufacturers make each layer of the battery separately and then integrate the layers together.

    Carbon Nanotube Membranes

    Porifera is developing carbon nanotube membranes that allow more efficient removal of CO2 from coal plant exhaust.
    Texas A&M University

    Highly Adsorbent Materials for Natural Gas Storage
