2018 NASA iTech Cycle II Energy Announced


THE TECH IS OUT THERE.

 

Announcing 2018 NASA iTech Cycle II Energy

NASA iTech and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) are collaborating on a unique iTech competition to identify transformational energy technologies that can improve energy generation, storage and distribution to the benefit of both space exploration and life on Earth.

For the 2018 iTech Energy Cycle, NASA and ARPA-E are seeking to identify the nation’s top entrepreneurs and researchers to present their innovative technologies to address energy-specific challenges.

A few examples of technology sub-themes that NASA believes have the potential to improve future space power systems include, but are not limited to:

  • Fuel Cells and Regenerative Fuel Cells

  • High-energy Density Batteries and Supercapacitors

  • Solar Power Systems

  • Small Fission Power Systems

  • Innovative Power Management and Distribution (including smart grids and wireless power transfer)

  • X-Factor Energy

 

The top 25 semifinalists for this energy-focused cycle will be announced on May 10, 2018. The top 10 finalists will be announced on May 25, 2018. Those finalists will be invited to present their technologies and engage with NASA and ARPA-E subject matter experts, potential investors, and industry partners at the NASA iTech 2018 Energy Forum at Citi’s global headquarters in New York City, June 11-14, 2018.

NASA iTech is a unique initiative to find innovative ideas that address critical problems here on Earth that also hold great potential to solve critical technology challenges in future space exploration.

Those ideas may come from small or large businesses, academia, other government organizations – or others who may not have previously had a forum to present their solutions to NASA leadership or their industry partners.

Finalists from across the U.S. have represented 30 of their most promising innovative technologies at the NASA iTech Forum during the first three cycles of the initiative.
