The molten silicon Direct WaferTM process developed by 1366 Technologies inherently reduces the cost and improves the strength and performance of the silicon wafer. The 1366 process of attaching molten silicon to a reusable substrate, solidying a thin sheet, and cleanly releasing a wafer eliminates the need for the sawing process, allows for controllable substrate formation, and increases the useable amount of silicon.

The 24M team proposed to develop a low-cost, high-energy-density battery for electric vehicles using a new cell design. The team initially investigated a flow battery approach with conventional Li-ion active materials suspended in a slurry (semi-solid mixture). However, within the first year of the project, the 24M team determined that using the slurry to fabricate thick electrodes was a more promising approach to cell design. This allowed them to re-evaluate the need for a flow-cell design for their batteries.

Agrivida’s goal was to develop plant varieties that would be better feedstocks for cellulosic biofuels. Prior to the ARPA-E award, enzymes had been isolated from microbes that naturally degrade the cell walls in plant biomass into fermentable sugars, but these enzymes are costly to produce.

Alveo’s primary goal was to develop a practical, low-cost, high performance battery based on chemical analogues of Prussian Blue dye. The cell performance goals included power capability up to 20C rate, projected cycle life >10,000 cycles, and projected calendar life >10 years.

The APEI team (now the Wolfspeed team, a new team comprised of the former APEI team and Cree’s Power & RF division) aimed to revolutionize WBG power electronics systems by developing a high-performance Silicon Carbide (SiC) based power module and associated gate driver that would improve overall performance through the reduction of electrical parasitics, enabling higher frequency operation and higher power density.

The Boston University’s (BU) topology control technology is designed to help grid operators actively manage power flows and integrate renewables by switching entire power lines in and out of service in coordination with traditional management of generators and demand. The topology control technology identifies transmission lines to be switched to mitigate network congestion and improve system reliability.
