 AVEtec Energy CorporationBrian Monrad, President and CEO  Small Business Other Energy Technologies Our AVE AERO Atmospheric Vortex Engine uses freely available natural or industrial sources of low-temperature heat (= warm air) to create and power and control an artificial tornado that functions like a natural chimney. The vortex is created by feeding warm air tangentially into an open-roofed arena where the rotating buoyant air forms a vortex as it rises. Power and robustness scale up exponentially with size, creating a draft that will move vast quantities of air at extremely low cost. This is a disruptive technology for the air handling, cooling and power generation industries because it is, in effect, a natural powerhouse
• made of warm air and
• running on warm air
• with no other moving parts.

This technology can be used to build a very inexpensive dry natural draft cooling tower.

 CeramatecDolly Chitta  Small Business Power Generation and Energy Production: Liquid and Gaseous Fuels/Nuclear My name is Dolly Chitta. I am the PI on ARPA-E funded program for “Natural gas to Chemicals”. I worked with several ARPA-E PD’s Dr. Boysen, Dr. Lemmon, Dr. Cheryl Martin (former) and Dr. Mumme (current) T2M advisor. I have successfully transitioned the program from TRL 1-5 to private funding (Multimillion in 2 years) wherein CoorsTek has taken over the technology scale up effort beyond ARPA_E funding. I have a PhD with background in Chemical engg. I was part of a team for spinning off new start-ups as well as license the technologies to other companies. I work closely with a number of Fortune 500, privately held large companies, universities and VC firms for T2M (ex. Air Products, Chevron, Hunt Oil, CoorsTek, SABIC, BP, Grace Davison, Albemarle, Western H2 and ExxonMobil, UC Berkeley and Harvard U, UNC, Northwestern, ANL). I understand the ecosystem of technology transition for energy projects from early stage to ultimate commercialization and believe I can add value to ARPA-E teams.  
 University of Nevada, RenoMiles Greiner  Academic Other Energy Technologies Our area of expertise includes conduction, radiation and convective heat transfer, numerical and experimental conjugate heat transfer, vacuum drying and forced helium dehydration processes. Our research group has extensive expertise in the experimentation and numerical modeling of dry cooling systems. Professor Miles Greiner, has performed experimental and computational research on grooved channel heat transfer augmentation since 1984. In previous project funded by the US department of Energy, we developed experimental apparatus and numerical simulations to quantify the heat transfer performance of finite-length continuously-grooved passage arrays, including the accelerating and decelerating flows entering and exiting arrays of parallel passages, and the development regions within the passages. The performance of grooved channel arrays was compared to that of flat passage arrays with the same mean wall center-to-center spacing.

 Stanford UniversityAaswath Raman  Academic Building Efficiency Our expertise lies in radiative cooling, a unique way of achieving water-free, electricity-free cooling that exploits the coldness of the sky and outer space. In particular, we have demonstrated for the first time daytime radiative cooling on large area substrates (a separate ARPA-E program). In doing so, we have developed domain expertise in building the panels needed to achieve sub-ambient-air-temperature cooling by using photonic approaches. Aaswath Raman was among the speakers at the workshop that preceded the development of this FOA (dry power plant cooling). We believe radiative cooling can work synergistically with other dry power plant cooling approaches, and that unique opportunities exist to scale it in ways suitable for use at the kW and MW-scale.
