 Georgia Institute of TechnologyNian Liu Academic Grid Prof. Nian Liu has 10 years’ experience on nanoscale materials design of high energy battery electrode materials, especially silicon anodes. Early in 2011, he demonstrated prelithiation of silicon anode to compensate low Coulombic efficiency of silicon anode or pair it with Li-free cathode, such as sulfur. In 2012, he designed a nanoscale “yolk-shell” structure to solve silicon’s problem of unstable solid-electrolyte interphase (SEI). In 2014, he designed a nanoscale “pomegranate” structure to significantly enhance silicon’s capacity retention at high mass loading (0.2mAh/cm2 → 3.7mAh/cm2), meeting commercial battery level.
In addition to structure design, the PI has rich experience with in situ investigation of trans-formation/degradation mechanisms in battery materials. In 2012, he used in situ XRD to elucidate the phase transformation of Si nanowire anode during lithiation and delithiation. In 2014, he used in situ X-ray absorption to reveal the local bonding transition when Ge lithiates and delithiates. In the same year, he used in situ X-ray imaging to reconstruct the 3D structural transition during Ge’s lithiation and delithiation and quantified the volume change for the first time. In 2012 and 2014, he used in situ TEM to monitor the nanoscale structural change of “yolk-shell” and “pomegranate” anodes, and confirmed the materials functioned as designed. These in situ studies have been critical for creating the scientific foundation for engineering nanostructured electrode materials with improved cycle life.
In 2017 the PI wrote an article to bring attention to the community that while fundamental understanding is important, more applied research has to be done on solving remaining challenges of silicon anode, e.g. initial Coulombic efficiency, areal capacity and cost, for it to be commercialized in the large scale.

 Technology Management, Inc.Benson Lee Small Business Other Energy Technologies Technology Management, Inc. (TMI) has pioneered the development of modular, fuel-agnostic, solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) systems for insertion into almost any fuel supply infrastructure in the world. A key enabling development is the ability to operate interchangeably on liquid and gas fuels and sulfur tolerance, which bypasses the requirement for fuel desulfurization, a limitation of almost every other known fuel cell system. Proven fuels include: natural gas, propane, diesel, kerosene, JP-8, biodiesel, vegetable oil, used cooking oil and others. The system design can also use producer gas and syngas from various biomass/waste to bio-fuel/ bio-product systems.

TMI has demonstrated and is now testing the AnywherEnergy™ (AE) fuel cell system, a kilowatt class (residential scale) prototype systems. AE system features include the ability to modulate (i.e., load-follow) output power, a cost-effective alternative to deep cycle batteries now used by intermittent power sources (i.e., solar, wind) for mission critical (i.e., 100% available) power. The AE system has demonstrated the use of waste heat to cogenerate additional electricity, heat, cooling and refrigeration, and high value products such as drinking water.

TMI is interested in partnering with major, established companies desiring to enter premium power markets with 100kW modules, capable of providing systems manufacturing, distribution and customer support, and willing to co-develop a market entry plan to fast-track customer acceptance of this hybrid fuel cell system in uncontested global markets.

 AIL ResearchAndrew Lowenstein Small Business Building Efficiency AIL Research is a world leader in advanced liquid desiccant technology. Although not now broadly applied, liquid desiccants can address many of the issues that now challenge the HVAC industry as it attempts to create healthy and comfortable indoor environments using technologies that have much lower carbon footprints. AILR's liquid desiccant air conditioners (LDAC) run primarily on thermal energy (e.g., hot water between 180 F and 210 F). When integrated with either a fuel cell or an engine/generator, the LDAC will convert waste heat into a valuable commodity--comfort conditioning--greatly increasing energy utilization for distributed energy systems.

 University of TennesseeFeng-Yuan Zhang Academic Other Energy Technologies The core skills in NanoHELP group lie in thermal-fluid sciences and combustions, micro-/nano- technology, advanced manufacturings, 3-D printings, and state-of-the-art spectroscopies and diagnostics. The group mission is to develop high-efficiency, low-cost and sustainable power and energy devices, including fuel cells, electrolyzers, batteries, direct combustion engines, and electric thrusters. The research will be ranging from fundamental understanding, new material development to system optimization with a strong interdisciplinary program for the study of micro/nano-scale chemical reaction, heat/mass transport, fluid mechanics, novel materials, corrosion, degradation, surface/mechanical/chemical properties and MEMS/NEMS.
One of the recent research studies is on high-efficiency hydrogen and oxygen productions and energy storages with PEM electrolyzer cells (PEMECs). Combining advanced manufacturing, novel material/component design and fabrication, state-of-the-art characterization, advanced high-speed imaging, theoretical modeling/simulations, and system testing, the NnaoHELP has in-situ revealed the real rapid electrochemical reactions in micro scale for the first time, and has demonstrated significant efficiency improvements and catalyst mass activity promotion of the electrochemical energy devices. Nanotechnology and advanced manufacturing are used to develop novel multifunctional liquid/gas diffusion layers (LGDLs) with desired transport, electrical and thermal properties. The new thin and flat LGDL with tunable straight pores remarkably reduce the ohmic, interfacial and transport losses and has been demonstrated significant performance improvements of the energy devices. In addition, well-tunable features, including pore size, pore shape, pore distribution, and thus porosity and permeability, are very valuable for developing PEMEC models and for validation of its simulations with optimal and repeatable performance. The LGDL thickness reduction from greater than 350 μm of conventional titanium felt LGDLs to 25 μm will greatly decrease the weight and volume of PEMEC stacks, and represents a new direction for future developments of low-cost PEMECs with high performance. Further, it can lead to a manufacturing solution to couple LGDLs with other bipolar plates, since they can be easily integrated by top-down and bottom-up manufacturing processes with low cost.

 Georgia Tech Research InstituteComas Haynes Academic Other Energy Technologies Haynes has over two decades of research experience regarding “direct” hybrid fuel cell/gas turbine systems such as the one(s) emphasized within the associated ARPA-E programmatic goals. Haynes’ vast experience on the topic dates back to his graduate theses (i.e., Master’s and Ph.D.) focused upon computational simulation of hybrid systems and includes numerous articles on the subject (e.g., three journal and ten conference papers co-authored with DoE NETL HYPER personnel). Haynes’ group has been a pivotal partner to the United States Department of Energy Hybrid Simulator (HYPER) real-time cyber-physical simulation (CPS) attempts, and he led a long-standing (i.e., over five years) “sole source” award in support of HYPER’s simulation of novel cyber-physical system hybrid fuel cell/gas turbine systems. These systems have been officially touted by the Department of Energy as the means of attaining highest power generation efficiencies from fossil fuels. Dr. Haynes and his research group provided the fuel cells modeling expertise, hybrid systems insights and hardware-in-the-loop enablement to critically assist HYPER as the world’s first such simulator. This hybrid simulator has afforded researchers and developers dynamic interaction, performance and reliability data, and insights that were previously inaccessible.
