$1.4 Million in Funding for Development of Energy Storage Technologies

New York state has awarded two Central New York companies and a university $250,000 each for their work on new technologies in battery and energy storage.

A total of six organizations statewide will share in the $1.4 million in funding, the office of Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a news release.

The recipients include Custom Electronics, Inc. of Oneonta; Widetronix, Inc. of Ithaca; and Cornell University, the governor’s office said.

The technologies will help develop working prototypes that demonstrate the ability of these advanced energy-storage systems to harden the state’s electric grid and diversify transportation fuels, Cuomo’s office said.

Funding is provided through the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and New York Battery and Energy Storage Technology (NY-BEST) consortium bench-to-prototype solicitation.

Ultracapacitor UPS (U-UPS) for voltage dips and micro-interruptions

Power interruptions are the most frequent power supply problems with wide-ranging consequences for industry. The causes of these interruptions include short-circuits in the distribution grid, lightning strikes, the connection and disconnection of power plants as well as volatile energy producers such as wind and solar. Because technologies and production processes are becoming increasingly complex, the…
