Brief Description of Technology:BuildingIQ’s Predictive Energy Optimization technology for commercial buildings learns a building’s energy requirements and optimizes the energy use to changes in weather, utility rates and DR events. BuildingIQ overlays the existing energy systems to get more value out of existing investments, with no upgrades or new sensors required.

Cascade Clean Energy, Inc.

Title / Name of Technology:Wastes to Bioenergy Using Computer Assisted Strain Construction
Development Status:Ready to Market
Brief Description of Technology:We developed a Computer Assisted Strain Construction technology (CASCADE) and used it to successfully achieve more efficient anaerobic digestion of biowastes and animal wastes. The technology was further applied to microbial fuel cells (MFCs) and algae-aided MFCs.

Echogen Power Systems, Inc.

Title / Name of Technology:Thermafficient® Heat Engine: Waste heat to power using a breakthrough supercritical CO2 power cycle
Development Status:Ready to Market
Brief Description of Technology:Echogen has developed a proprietary thermal engine to convert industrial waste heat (including exhaust gas from gas turbines) into electricity, reducing the demand that large power consumers currently place on the grid. Our technology allows them to repurpose their waste heat into electricity reducing fuel cost up to 30%.

Flux Energy GS, LLC

Title / Name of Technology:Community Scale Solar Power Day and Night
Development Status:Ready to Market
Brief Description of Technology:Our SunDial technology incorporates innovative concepts for solar energy gathering and storage and heat rejection to provide high availability power with a dry cooling CSP / PV hybrid system that keeps a soft environmental footprint and automated inspection, targeting and cleaning.

GridManager A/S

Title / Name of Technology:GridManager
Development Status:Ready to Market
Brief Description of Technology:Classic energy efficiency systems work on the concept that "some" information about the system's operations is sufficient for management. GridManager is a second generation solution doing that, but with far more detail and modularity, and providing the clients with tools for smart grid participation in peak load shaving and demand response.

Nextreme Thermal Solutions, Inc.

Title / Name of Technology:Thin-film Thermoelectrics
Development Status:Ready to Market
