RMBLStrip

Vehicles

RMBLStrip has developed a patented software technology that enables a self-regulated roof deflector that will adjust itself to the optimal position and save in average 3% in fuel costs and CO2 emissions for haulers. The solution uses big data analysis to understand how the air flow passes by the truck and uses that information to control the roof deflector without any need for manual adjustment for every new trailer connected to the truck. This saves time and money for the driver and the hauler.

Compact tokamak fusion power
solution: added 15th March, 2019

Commonwealth Fusion Systems

Compact tokamak fusion power

Decades of government-funded research in fusion science have established the tokamak as the leading approach to confining fusion-grade plasmas with strong magnetic fields. Yet, in the past, even state-of-the art superconducting magnet technology required tokamaks to be enormous to produce net fusion energy.

Recently, a new superconductor technology has reached industrial maturity: Rare-Earth Barium Copper Oxide (REBCO). The Commonwealth Fusion Systems company plans to engineer REBCO into high-field magnets, which enables much smaller tokamak-based fusion systems. Smaller means cheaper and faster development.

Nordic Power Converters

Smart grid

Power converters in LED lights are the reason for more than 50% of failures in LED lights. Further LED lamps and luminaires are fairly expensive. Chargers are bulky and heavy. Nordic Power Converters develops power converters that are substantially better for LED lights and in the form of much smaller and lighter chargers for devices. Their Very High Frequency (VHF) switching of resonant power converters address the aforementioned problems with substantial value propositions like 80% size/weight reduction, vastly longer lifespan and a greener footprint.

Active magnetic bearings for electrical machines
solution: added 15th March, 2019

SpinDrive

Active magnetic bearings for electrical machines

Around 40% of the electricity worldwide is consumed by rotating electrical machines. However, most of the electrical machines are not working at the optimum point from a process efficiency perspective. SpinDrive's solution claims to lower the customer's lifecycle costs by 35%. The company provides design and prototyping of high-speed electrical drivetrains and serial production of active magnetic bearings. SpinDrive’s solution claims to lower the drivetrain losses by half.  They further claim that, for the 500-kW unit operating 8000 hours per year, their solution enables 2-year payback time.

SOLshare

Peer-to-peer solar electricity trading platform

SOLshare claims to have developed the world’s first peer-to-peer solar electricity trading platform that leverages existing solar home systems (SHS) in an off-grid context to create a bottom-up smart grid. SOLshare’s SOLbox is a DC bi-directional power meter, solar charge controller and end-user device that functions as an individual node of the electricity trading network. SOLbox allows the trading network to grow dynamically from the ‘bottom-up’ as more users connect over time. SOLshare facilitates secure peer-to-peer electricity trading between users; integrating mobile money payment, data analytics and grid management services. As a SOLshare network grows, it can connect with the national grid, operating in island mode or drawing power from the grid.
