SolarPA is developing a coating for solar photovoltaic cells to improve their efficiency in generating electricity. The company will evaluate several polymeric materials to determine the best material that meets requirements of solar cell manufacturers. The polymer must be applied and cured at near-room temperature, maintain its characteristics over the long term Continue Reading ...
Assess the technical and economic feasibility of a proposed rooftop photovoltaic array to address the energy needs of this producer of commercial signage and merchandising systems. Evaluate an existing coating, drying, and curing operation to increase product throughput.
Conduct a feasiblity study to establish the technical and economic viability of a wind system at the Keystone Manufacturing site. This producer of potato flakes and fresh / frozen potatoes uses alternative energy to power manufacturing.
Complete design, construct, and test a prototype of a new kind of point-concentrated solar power dish that will deliver power at a lower cost due its novel design and the materials used in its construction. The dish, called a toroid solar collector, will be fabricated, assembled, and then tested on the rooftop of a local building. The dish is capable of providing thermal power for HVAC, power generation, desalination, and process heat applications at a cost comparable to fossil fuel-based sources of energy.
