 RWL Systems LLCJohn Lyden Small Business Renewable Energy Integration (REI) Renewable Power Generation Technology with integral Carbon CapturePower generation 24/7 from organic waste material with zero emissions, plus substantial heat and water recovery for site processes. Carbon capture is integral to process, and verification of sequestration is integral to the use of materials produced. System design uses only existing commercial equipment and proven industrial processes within their specified operational modes. Power is produced at a very low per kWh cost net due to the marketability of the renewable materials produced.

Single module output is 6.2 MW gross; net available power for "Other Loads" is 3 MW. Project is scalable to 30 MW gross/15 MW net restricted only by waste fuel availability. System can parallel utility or other renewable power sources; or can operate in permanent island mode where it needs no external utility support for continuous operation. Our website is in redesign, and does not show or further describe this system.

Demonstration site is planned for Ocala FL location operating on waste wood, where the available 3.2 MW will be utilized to produce over 6 million gallons of D-975 renewable diesel fuel. This is continuous 3 phase AC power output at medium voltage and can be applied to any industrial or commercial loads.

 REpowering SchoolsRemy Pangle Non-Profit Office of Clean Energy Demonstration (OCED) renewable energy educationREpowering Schools is a 501c3 organization working with educators and the renewable energy industry and in coordination with national and state government projects to support programming and opportunities to engage and train a diverse and sustained renewable energy workforce.

We support, recognize, and connect the renewable energy industry with K12 schools, educators, and colleges and universities seeking to boost STEM learning and introduce new job opportunities to students to build a diverse and sustained workforce. By educating students and their communities about renewable energy we strive to increase the pool of qualified labor and inform citizens to make educated energy decisions.

The Wind for Schools project (WfS) was created in 2006 by the Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. The intent was to create a program that would teach future generations of wind energy workers, supporting the rapidly growing wind industry. Due to its success, in 2016 the DOE funded the development of a sustainable program an effort to expand private sector engagement in workforce development through a non-profit organization.

The robust wind industry growth and the broad range of skills, talents, and interests provide an enormous opportunity for the future U.S. workforce, but also a challenge to the wind industry to attract and train sufficient talent to meet the growing needs. The Wind for Schools project was initiated in 2005 to meet this challenge.

The primary goals of the Wind for Schools project are to:

Improve wind energy workforce development through wind-focused deployment and educational activities

Introduce teachers and students to wind energy

Engage rural America by showcasing local wind installations and providing information about how wind energy provides economic development benefits to host communities

Inspire students to pursue careers in wind energy and equip them with skills to provide the wind industry with highly qualified candidates

Today, the WfS program is operating in 12 states and, through REpowering Schools, is broadening to include solar energy and expanding its successful program through efforts in additional states. Currently, universities across the country host classroom studies, conduct field assessments, support renewable energy focused teacher and student training, and support the consideration of small wind and solar installations at educational institutions.

 Minnesota Technical Assistance Program, University of MinnesostaJon Vanyo Academic Advanced Manufacturing (Industrial) Topic 1: Regional Onsite Energy TAPsThe Minnesota Technical Assistance Program (MnTAP) works with industrial manufacturing facilities on energy efficiency, pollution prevention, waste reduction and water conservation types of projects. The program also has experience working with municipal wastewater treatment plant and pond systems on energy efficiency and nutrient optimization projects.

MnTAP’s core focus involves providing no-cost technical assistance through site assessments with industrial manufacturing clients to identify energy efficiency and waste reduction strategies to help businesses to become more sustainable, efficient, and cost effective. This is most often achieved through low and no-cost operational changes.

MnTAP is interested in partnering with a Regional Onsite Energy TAP to connect Minnesota business clients interested in exploring renewable energy to this program, and/or to provide renewable energy assessments as an optional addition to our standard technical assistance assessments.

MnTAP also has a very successful intern program, generally hiring 15-20 junior and senior level engineering and science students to complete efficiency and sustainability projects with Minnesota businesses for three months over the summer. Each student is mentored by a MnTAP engineer or researcher and provided the guidance and conditions they need to identify solutions and drive project implementation. The intern program would be a great tool for in-depth exploration and implementation of renewable energy technologies through this partnership.

 ELM SolarMyles Murray Small Business Solar Solar Thermal & Hybrid TechnologyELM Solar is the US manufacturer and distributor of Naked Energy's Award winning Virtu solar collectors.

In addition to being the highest energy density solar collectors available, our collectors are able to achieve the high temperatures required for many industrial processes. Our evacuated tube collectors can reliably produce heat up to 180F even in low-light conditions. High energy densities are achieved by incorporating an optimized tilt angle with mirror augmentation resulting in 20-30% enhanced annual output.

For lower temperature thermal needs, ELM Solar also produces Virtu PVT, a hybrid PV-Thermal collector. This enables industrial operations to maximize production of both heat and power at the same time.

Our products are used in potable water preheat systems, space heating and hydronic systems and in industrial processing that requires thermal energy.
