  • Publication number: 20190202306
    Abstract: A system and method for energy distribution with decoupled by time and space domains that integrates energy storage capabilities that feature co-products utilization at the point of energy storage charging, byproduct utilization at the point of energy production, and time and space decoupling of vehicle shuttling energy storage media discharge to accelerate return on investment, reduce system energy consumption, and maximize utilization of existing energy infrastructure. Additionally, the system executes the energy transactions by controlling and integrating distributed energy producers and consumers with minimal grid dependence.

  • Publication number: 20180215926
    Abstract: Icephobic coatings that reduce ice adhesion strength must also enable ice delamination to ensure effective ice removal, especially when adjacent areas are not coated with icephobic coatings in which case an ice bridging preventer must also exist. The resulting mechanical devices ensure ice removal by leveraging specific ice delamination propagation features of the icephobic coating.

  • Publication number: 20160068411
    Abstract: The heat exchangerless membrane system optimizes heat transfer between a set of two immiscible fluids such that the second of the two immiscible fluids having an additive, notably an additive that makes the second fluid corrosive, is infrequently in contact any heat exchangers that would make the heat exchanger subject to corrosion. This membrane system is capable of separating the two immiscible fluids downstream of the heat transfer process, such that heat transfer can repeat the cycle again in an energy efficient manner.
