Sandia Labs Harnesses the Sun’s Energy with Tiny Particles

Engineers at Sandia, along with part­ner institutions Georgia Tech, Bucknell University, King Saud University, and the German Aerospace Center (DLR), are using a falling-particle receiver to more efficiently convert solar energy to electri­city in large-scale, concentrating solar power (CSP) plants. Falling-particle receiver technology is attractive because it can cost-effectively capture and store heat at higher [...]

Sandia Will Host PV Bankability Workshop at Solar Power International (SPI) 2013

JBEI Updates Techno-Economic Modeling Tools for Biofuels

Now available on-line from the Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) are two new, improved versions of a techno-economic model created in 2010 to accelerate development of next generation biofuels that are economically competitive with petroleum-based fuels. Incorporating the latest state-of-the-art technologies relevant to bioethanol production, these new wiki-based models simulate critical factors in the biorefinery process, [...]

JBEI Research Receives Strong Industry Interest in DOE Technology Transfer Call

To enable technology transfer from DOE-supported research centers (such as the three BioEnergy Research Centers [BRCs]) to the commercial sector, DOE issued a SBIR/STTR (Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer [Research]) program call. This involved having the DOE-funded projects self-identify intellectual property (IP) available for licensing to industry, and then offering the [...]
