Megawatt Ventures Exhibitor Descriptions
Almos Battery Corporation
The company is engaged in developing a new battery technology which is safe & low cost for electric power grid applications. The proposed product is a prototype battery which is scalable to megawatts power and megawatts-hr energy. The prototype battery is being built. The battery allows the operation to be on an unattended basis for extended period of time. Integration of battery system into utility transmission and distribution is a mature and well defined process.
CeramiPower, Inc. is a company founded on researching and developing ceramic based combustion products for both military and civilian applications. CeramiPower's combined heat and power unit (CHP), compromised of enhanced porous burner technology and coupled with a state of the art heat engine, e.i., thermoelectric technology/sterling engine, can have significant competitive advantages over upcoming energy supplying/generation technologies.
Florida Technology Development, LLC
Florida Technology Development, LLC, advances promising research and development along the path to commercialization through careful selection, business plan development, technology de-risking, product and process development, identification and development of the best full commercialization path, and managing and brokering necessary arrangements to reach full technical and commercial success.
Illuminated Electric LLC
Illuminated Electric develops The Sun Dish, a Hybrid Lighting system that collects sunlight via a small roof top solar collector and redistributes the light via fiber optics to interior lighting fixtures. A centralized system measures the intensity of the sunlight and supplements the sunlight with LED light to ensure sufficient interior lighting. The centralized system design results in lower fixture and installation costs versus competitive systems. Utility patent US20110017199 was filed in 2011.
Nautilida Solar, Inc. is a start-up manufacturing company in Winter Haven, Florida specializing in producing concentrating solar energy equipment. Nautilida Solar devices utilize a spiral-shaped mirror to focus and separate light into visible and infrared (IR) spectrums. The visible light is converted with a silicon solar cell, while the infrared energy is captured for usable heat.
Omnii Sense, LLC
Omnii Sense LLC, headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida, is a developer of intelligent wireless sensor networks. Intelligent sensor networks gather, record, and report real time data for multiple industries including energy, health, environmental, and security. The Omnii Sense “smart” sensor technology requires no human interaction once activated and no retrofitting to existing infrastructure. The sensors automatically establish a viable communication path, identify nearest neighbors, perform self-healing in the event of disruption, and can be used to detect everything from energy consumption, to microbes and chemical warfare agents.
P.V. Integrated is developing a novel process for low cost, high throughput manufacturing of CIGS Thin-Film solar cells. This process, once integrated into existing Thin-Film photovoltaic manufacturing lines, will reduce the number of processing steps leading to a reduction in the time and cost associated with manufacturing. This is made possible through the replacement of the standard Cadmium Sulfide/ZnO layer with a ZnMgO alternative. This process has the added benefit of removing the need for a toxic Cadmium compound and eliminating the costs related to the disposal of Cadmium containing waste products.
Trash 2 Cash-Energy LLC
Trash 2 Cash converts landfill gas to customer specific liquid fuel. The proprietary gas to liquid process converts naturally produced landfill gas (LFG), composed mainly of methane and carbon dioxide, to hydrocarbon fuels specific to the customer needs such as diesel fuel. Trash 2 Cash couples a patent pending Fischer Tropsch (FT) eggshell catalyst to an innovative process design, incorporating a novel tri-reforming reaction to reduce the troublesome impurities found in crude bio-derived gases and produce desired syngas for the FT reaction. This alleviates many problems associated with accumulating municipal solid waste (MSW) in landfills and provides a domestic, sustainable, green fuel.
UB-WiSystems, Inc. was founded in May 2012 and provides ultra-low power transceiver solutions for Wi-Fi enabled consumer electronics.
