High-Efficiency, Alternative Energy Technology Seen as Significant in Meeting Immediate Military Needs And Further Development for Commercial Applications
 BUFFALO, NY - ENrG Inc., a high technology firm specializing in the design, development and fabrication of critical ceramic components for clean energy systems, announces that the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) has awarded the firm up to $500,000 on a $1.4M contract to further advance the development of a bi-electrode supported Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) system. Technology for this high power, compact energy source was originally developed by the NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC) in Cleveland, Ohio, and offers the potential of a five-fold improvement in power performance per weight over current SOFC approaches. It also features increased reliability of the fuel cell stack, the electrochemical power-generating unit that is central to the system. ENrG Inc. and NASA GRC will work with Battelle and Ultralife Batteries, Inc. on the commercialization of SOFC based battery charger systems for the military.

Advantages of Using Thin E-Strate®

Thin E-Strate® for active or passive device fabrication. More robust than silicon.

As a ceramic, 3YSZ is inert, of high purity, tolerates processing temperatures to 1200°C, and with its low thermal mass can tolerate high thermal shock during deposition or coating processes.

Being ultra thin to 20 microns thick, it presents a very low thermal resistance path for heat removal and a super thin profile for component coating.  Multi-layers of active layer coated Thin E-Strate® can easily be stacked into low profile components.
