 University of Central FloridaJayan Thomas Academic Other Energy Technologies Prof. Thomas's research focusses on developing advanced nanomaterials for wearable devices that can harvest and store energy. He is an expert in developing flexible and bendable fibers and cables for energy storage applications. For the first time, his research group has developed cables that can transmit and store energy. These cables can be beneficial in stabilizing the power fluctuations that occur during day time when energy is harvested using solar panels. It also enables the replacement of the can-type capacitors currently used on the integrated circuit boards saving considerable space and weight. Recently, he has developed fabrics that can synchronously harvest and store energy. Since portable electric power is a crucial component in many technological operations, the energy self-reliant fabric/matrix has the potential to cater to the energy needs of many military, homeland security and aerospace applications. These matrices can also be used on automobile roof-tops to harvest and store energy during day time when the vehicle is in the sun. His current focus is on developing energy-storing structural materials for automobiles.

Thomas is an associate professor of nanotechnology, optics and engineering at the University of Central Florida (UCF). He has published more than 100 scientific papers and is a recipient of Luminary award (2018), Reach for the stars award (2016), R&D 100 award (2015), NSF CAREER award (2014), VEECO's 2010 best nanotechnology innovation award and a finalist of WTN award (2014) sponsored by FORTUNE and TIME magazines. His major research interests include supercapacitors, solar cells and optoelectronic neuromorphic computing.

The Nano-Energy research lab houses multiple electrochemical work stations and all other equipment required for fabricating and characterizing energy storage devices.

 PROTRON ENERGY CORPORATIONGunes M. Ecer Small Business Power Generation: Renewable We offer a new concept for generating electricity. It is a regenerative Ionic Cell (RIC) system that promises to be the ultimate energy source that can be implemented quickly and on massive scale, negating all prior energy sources obsolete. is a totally clean energy source that never ends, and is as large as the world demand.

RIC resembles the conventional hydrogen fuel cell (HFC), which wastes hydrogen by forming water vapor (a GHG); uses oxygen, complicating HFC architecture (cost increase) and increases explosion danger, while its output is limited by proton diffusion rate to cathode; thus the power output is too low.

RIC system uses four innovations to allow the repeated use of the same hydrogen. The energy utilized comes from the conversion of a minute amount of proton mass to energy (E=MC2). No oxygen is needed; thus, no explosions are possible, and the reaction chamber architecture becomes simpler; it can operate with or without a membrane, and no waste products formed.

In the existing hydrogen fuel cells, the rate limiting step is the slow speed of proton travel to the cathode. In the RIC system, high speed proton travel to cathode can be achieved by application of an external force, such as centrifugal force on the circulating water loaded with protons (hydronium ions); thus, power outputs high enough even for the jet engines are possible. A typical full-sized car will be able to travel at least 500,000 miles without refueling on an initial charge of 10 grams of hydrogen.

Other beneficial outcomes include negligibly small energy cost, endless fuel supply, super high-power output on demand, elimination of recharging or filling stations, elimination of the need for all fossil fuels, zero GHG emissions, non-dependency on weather or continuous solar radiation or wind, or dangerous radioactivity or critical materials. Need for a large electricity grid will diminish as well.

VALUE PROPOSITION: Solving climate change & energy problems effectively and cheaply represents a great value proposition. Described in USPTO Patent Application No: 16655384, the RIC technology will open a new age for human civilization; disrupting the existing energy ecosystem by positively and hugely affecting world economy. RIC will save about $5 trillion/y globally.

PLAN: We intend to develop prototypes to demonstrate the technology & license it to a number of corporations for quick implementation to stop climate change. We are looking for partners.

 ProVance TechnologiesVance Turner Individual Other Energy Technologies We have developed a new pump technology based on the hyper-sonic pulse detonation of Hydrogen and Oxygen and water as the flexible piston. it has to date the highest efficiency of converting chemical energy to pressure and/or vacuum. it is also the fastest pressure/vacuum pump. It has the potential to replace steam plants with high pressure room temperature water in a very small footprint. It will "ALWAYS" be more efficient than a fuel cell. We will let other validate exactly how efficient it is but some folks are going to be very surprised and it should set the "SAFE UNIVERSAL STANDARD" for work. We also have found a novel electrolysis model that doesn't separate the hydrogen and oxygen and are developing it to power the pump. You can contact me at my CELL# 408-431-5595

 Michigan State UniversityHarold Schock Academic Transportation To ignite a high-EGR primary or very lean mixtures in an IC engine, a Dual Mode, Turbulent Jet Ignition (DM-TJI) system has been developed which comprises a fuel-tolerant combustion system with the promise of emission control of noxious exhaust gases using a three-way catalyst. We have shown that we can reliably and controllably ignite very lean mixtures (λ=3.06 ) of gaseous methane in a rapid compression machine (RCM) using the turbulent jet ignition system (TJI). The λ values shown refer to the overall fuel-air in the pre-chamber and in the main chamber as compared to a stoichiometric mixture. The unique, patented MSU concept involves controlling the rich charge in the pre-chamber by providing reactants (fuel and air) to the pre-chamber independently of the primary chamber. This system has also been implemented in Prototype 1, 2, and 3 engines. Competing TJI technology uses rich turbulent jets to ignite overall lean mixtures (TJI) or HCCI-like systems. The MSU-invented and proposed technology is the only one which addresses controlling the stoichiometry of the fuel and air in the pre-chamber, thereby eliminating the combustion instabilities associated with residual combustion gases from a previous cycle. Application of this system in single-cylinder engines has shown indicated efficiencies as high as 47% with expected broad range of brake engine efficiencies over 40%. Highly dilute systems with >40% EGR and λ=1 operation have shown indicated efficiencies as high as 44% with COV in IMEP values as low as 1%. NOx values are between the 10s and low 100s of ppm depending on the configuration. A Prototype 3 Jetfire engine with a cylinder head configuration suitable for multi-cylinder application will be operational in early 2020. Prototype 3 system is expected to cost less than $200 for a four-cylinder application.

 SUNY at Stony Brook, Dept. of Materials Sci and Chem. Eng., Sensor CATVladimir Alexander Samuilov Academic Other Energy Technologies Next Generation of High Power and High Energy Storage Devices.
Our research team at the Department of Materials Science and Chemical Engineering at SUNY at Stony Brook has an extensive experience in development of high-energy density electrochemical energy storage devices. We invented and demonstrated for first time a totally novel design and development of a unique high-voltage supercapacitor that allows to substantially increase the cell voltage above 40 V.
The main advantages of the supercapacitors over the batteries are: (i) very fast charge/discharge capability; (ii) higher power density; and (iii) much better cycle life performance. Furthermore, making bendable power sources requires development of soft electrode-active materials, and solid electrolytes, which is easier achievable in the SCs rather than in the batteries.
The innovative idea of our single-unit high-voltage supercapacitors is based on the principle of interconnection of multiple electrodes in a diverse way, internally in the unit. Such interconnection allows redistribution of the voltage between the electrodes, which results in increasing of the total operating cell voltage without exceeding the decomposition voltage of the electrolyte.
As developed advanced supercapacitors can overcome all the challenges that the next generation energy storage devices are currently facing. Firstly, their intrinsic cell voltage decreases as a result of the charge decrease in the electrodes during the discharge, which mandates the use of DC–DC converter to regulate and stabilize their output voltage. Secondly, the specific energy density of the supercapacitors is much lower than that of Li-ion batteries (maximum 10 Wh/kg versus up to 250 Wh/kg for Li-ion batteries).
Our discovery opens a novel way to tremendously increase the energy density of the supercapacitors. By applying our innovative technology, we are able to design supercapacitors with the specific energy density up to 400 Wh/kg, which is unachievable with any existing battery system.
Our team has a fully equipped electrochemical laboratory that allows us to perform all the electrochemical study and develop high-capacitance electrodes for the high-energy density supercapacitors of interest. Also, we have wet chemistry lab, and access to the advanced instruments for materials characterization at the Advanced Energy Center (AERTC) at Stony Brook University, and at the Center for Functional Nanomaterials at Brookhaven National Lab.

 Center for Clean Energy Engineering, University of ConnecticutStoyan Bliznakov Academic Other Energy Technologies Dr. Bliznakov is currently a Senior Research Professor at the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and the Center for Clean Energy Engineering at the University of Connecticut. He has extensive knowledge and hands-on experience in electrochemistry, electrocatalysis, electrochemical energy storage and conversion devices development, including fuel cells and batteries assembly and testing. Previously, as a staff member at Brookhaven National Laboratory and a member of a world leading research team in the field of fuel cell catalysis, Dr. Bliznakov directed team activities on the development of a novel approach for nanoengineering of platinum monolayer core-shell type fuel cell electrocatalysts and advanced membrane electrode assemblies (MEAs). Dr. Bliznakov is author and co-author of 65 peer-reviewed papers, two book chapters, and four US patents.
At UConn Dr. Bliznakov is part of a team that has developed a unique Reactive Spray Deposition Technology (RSDT). The RSDT is a flame-based process where metal or carboneous nanoparticles (NPs) are synthesized by combustion of metal and/or organic precursors, which are dissolved in combustible solvents. Thus, it is a facile method for synthesis of ultra –high surface area NPs (>2000 m2/g), that can be directly deposited on the current collectors for engineering 3D electrode structures for batteries and supercapacitors applications, or directly on polymer electrolyte membranes for fabrication of advanced MEAs for alkaline and/or PEM fuel cells and electrolyzers.
In addition, the technology allows to avoid any binders in the electrodes of interest, which results in low ESR for the electrodes and ensures very high specific capacitance (>200 F/g) when deposited on scaffold structures for application in the next generation high-voltage, high-power and high-energy density supercapacitors that demonstrated potential to achieve energy densities of higher than 300 Wh/kg.

 Argonne National LaboratoryAbdellatif Yacout Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) Power Generation and Energy Production: Fossil/Nuclear Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) has been actively involved in the past in relation to the field of thermionics, with recent direct support of innovations related to development of thermionic based nuclear batteries. With recent focus on the development of efficient energy conversion systems, our group at ANL has been pursuing more efficient thermionic converter designs that are based on innovations in converter materials developments for cesium ion-based refractory metal thermionic converters. The team has developed a technology that helps achieve gain in the net electron emission (x 3 times) without affecting the converter shape (maintaining overall converter footprint) or applying any new material over the refractory metal design. With this technology, it has also been demonstrated that the temperature required for electron emission can be lowered by at least 100 oC, improving the overall conversion efficiency of those cesium-based devices. The team is interested in teaming up with anyone (industries, small business, national laboratories) who is currently looking to commercialize and develop thermionic converter designs for solar, nuclear or as a top-up cycle application.

 West Virginia UniversityXueyan Song Academic Power Generation: Renewable Dr. Xueyan Song is currently a Professor at the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at West Virginia University (WVU).

Dr. Song has focused her research on “Tuning Various Kinds of Conductivity and Performance of Electro-Ceramics through Controlling the Atomic and Nano Structure of Crystal Defects”. Dr. Song’s peer-reviewed Journal publications include those have appeared in Nature, Nature Materials, Nano Letters, Physics Review, Applied Physics Letters, and ACS Catalysis. Dr. Song is an NSF-CAREER awardee, and recipient of multiple times of outstanding researcher and Researcher of the year from the College of Engineering at WVU.

In the field of fuel cells, Dr. Song’s group research on various crystal defects that have a profound influence on the conductivity and performance of various electro-ceramics. Dr. Song’s work includes, but not limited to, the following: (1). Investigation of grain boundaries and interfaces in a porous electrode of solid oxide cells to tackle their nanostructure origin of performance degradation. (2). Modifying the nanostructure of internals surface of the porous electrode, using Atomic layer deposition (ALD), to dramatically improve the power density, longevity and contaminant endurance of Solid Oxide Cells for high-temperature electricity generation and electrolysis.

Dr. Song’s team capability includes microscopy characterization from microns to atomic scale; fuel cell electrochemical performance testing and analysis; synthesis and conductivity measurement of different ceramic materials, ALD coating of materials and devices.

In terms of ALD applications in fuel cells, during the past several years, Dr. Song’s research team has utilized ALD to modify the nanostructure of an internal surface of as-received commercial cells and enhanced the performance of commercial fuel cells by 370 %, or by a factor of 3.7. This bears an immediate application potential in the SOFC technology since the applied ALD processing is scalable to both the single cells and SOFC stacks. In terms of the fundamental science, for the first time in the field of SOFCs, the work from Dr. Song’s group demonstrates the formation of conformal stable nanoionics and electrocatalytic nanoionics implanted using ALD. Such ALD enabled surface electrocatalytic nanoionics directly enabled the nanostructured electrode that has been constantly pursued for decades yet barely succeeded for practical high-temperature SOFC applications.
