Alveo Energy is developing a completely new high power, long cycle life, low-cost battery technology for stationary and select transit applications.
Ambri is developing an electricity storage solution that will change the way electric grids are operated worldwide. Ambri will enable more widespread use of renewable generation like wind and solar, reduce power prices and increase system reliability.
Bidgely (which means “electricity” in Hindi) has developed ground-breaking analytics that can itemize home energy usage data to the appliance level without using any plug-level monitors.
SeaMicro develops solutions that address power inefficiencies in data centers. The company created the microserver category and is the only company with a second generation fabric server with over 1.28 Tbps bandwidth. SeaMicro’s technology innovation addresses the dramatic changes in the demand for storage and the economics of operation driven by the sea changes in devices, applications and user growth. With its patented SeaMicro Freedom™ Fabric, SeaMicro technology supports both x86 and ARM servers and processor options from both AMD and Intel. The company was acquired by AMD.
Silicium is developing silicon thermoelectrics that enable substantially increased battery longevity for wearable electronics. By using body heat, Silicium technology can help power an entire spectrum of wearable devices ranging from smart watches, fitness monitors and consumer health monitors, to wearable medical diagnostics and implantable medical devices. Silicium leverages technology created at Caltech and the University of Michigan, utilizing a “fab-less” approach for high performance thermoelectrics using off the shelf silicon wafers.
Soraa makes ordinary lighting extraordinarily brilliant and efficient using LEDs built from pure gallium nitride substrates (GaN on GaN™). Soraa’s full spectrum GaN on GaN LED lamps have superior color rendering and beam characteristics compared to lamps using LEDs created from non-native substrates.
Tula Technology develops digital signal processing and combustion control technology for internal combustion engines. The company’s approach to engine management improves fuel efficiency by modifying internal combustion engines and combining proprietary digital signal processing technology and advanced combustion control techniques to dramatically reduce the fuel consumption of internal combustion engines without compromising performance or drivability. This significant improvement in fuel efficiency is achieved through two mechanisms: by operating each cylinder primarily at its optimal efficiency point, and by firing only as many cylinders as needed to provide the driver’s requested level of power and torque.
Varentec provides products and solutions that achieve smarter power delivery for its customers. The company builds power management and monitoring solutions for the electric grid.
