ENrG Receives NYSERDA Contract for SOFC Insulation (12/5/06)

December 5, 2006

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) has awarded a contract to ENrG Inc. for up to $500,000 to support the development of “Advanced Insulation for Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC)-Based Power Units.” ENrG has developed unique technology that will enhance the insulation package for SOFC power units, enabling SOFC system integrators to further reduce their systems’ mass and size, which is important for many stationary and mobile power applications. In total, this project will be a $1.3 million effort led by ENrG, with testing support from Delphi Corp.

“Reducing diesel fuel use and air pollution is a high priority at NYSERDA,” said Peter R. Smith, NYSERDA president and CEO. “We are pleased to participate in this effort to further the development of fuel flexible, compact SOFC power technology to help bring greater fuel efficiency and cleaner air to our power generation and transportation industries.”
