In the case of Antora Energy’s thermophotovoltaic (TPV) energy storage technology, what’s old is new again. And Myles Steiner, a researcher at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), is helping the company to reinvigorate it.
Antora Energy is building a low-cost thermal battery for grid-scale energy storage to meet the growing need for long-duration storage created by the global transition to renewables.
Berkeley-based Feasible, Inc. makes hardware-software systems that measure performance and predict degradation in batteries with a unique combination of ultrasound and data analytics.
Joint Institute for Strategic Energy Analysis: This study compares and contrasts many of the leaders in cleantech incubation and acceleration, including Shell GameChanger Accelerator Powered by NREL (GCxN).
NREL Battery Control Engineer Ying Shi is one of the four lead researchers working on the inaugural cohort of GCxN. As a battery-system engineer, Shi was excited to help Feasible test out its diagnosis system, which uses acoustics to detect battery degradation.
GreenTech Media: The oil giant’s e-mobility strategy “will be about putting charge points on Shell gas stations, but it’s a lot bigger than that,” says the VP for new fuels.
Electric Grid Monitoring’s (EGM’s) Meta-Alert™ system converts legacy static grids into digitized, integrated, dynamic, and adaptive networks, modernizing the management of distributed energy resources (DER).
GreenTech Media: Oil major has been on a clean-energy acquisition spree, and “absolutely” intends to become a regional electric utility in the U.S.
Santosh Veda is leading an NREL research team to test Electrical Grid Monitoring’s (EGM’s) Meta-Alert™ system, also known as “Eyes on the Grid.”
