PoF – Power over Fiber: A Novel Approach for Energy TransmissionPower over Fiber technology is a potential solution for power transmission through fiber-optic links. The PoF main superiorities are simultaneous data and power transmission through optical links and immunity to electromagnetic interference short-circuits and sparks. PoF systems provide galvanic isolation, weight reduction, and resistance to corrosion, moisture, and extreme temperatures.
JANiiT – Advanced Energy Management SystemJANiiT is a predictive, energy management system that enables grid-interaction and demand response. JANiiT reduces peak load and delivers 100% autonomous, demand charge management. Deployed in the cloud or at the edge, acts as a supervisory later optimizing behind-the-meter (BTM), balancing Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) and flexible loads.
Organic lighting devicesMargik delivers OrganicLEDs based on novel materials which are non-harmful to both humans and the environment. Our devices are made from Earth-abundant materials, unlike current LEDs that utilize scarce and toxic elements. Our products enable natural lighting while decreasing power consumption by 23%, and reducing greenhouse emissions by 66%.
uncrewed fish management for robotic aquaculture and invasive species controlRadmantis has developed uncrewed fish management devices that are trained to detect and classify fish based on important characteristics, such as species ID, size, sex, skin lesions or parasitic load, or behavior. Based on this classification individuals are guided towards divergent paths and ultimate fates.
in-water refueling systemThis in-water refueling system uses fuel-cell propulsion, providing a safer and cleaner alternative to high-pressure gas refueling. It enhances the safety and efficiency of refueling fuel cell vehicles and has many commercial applications... Providing hospitals and first responders a redundant safe system to generate oxygen and fill oxygen tanks/bottles.
High density fuels from isopreneA method for producing high density fuels from isoprene which can be produced via biosynthetic routes using biomass sugars as feedstock. This allows for the production of isoprene and isoprene-derived fuels from abundant waste materials with the potential to significantly reduce carbon emissions.
