Flywheel Energy Storage Device for Hybrid and Electric Vehicles This cost-effective technology stores and reuses what would otherwise be wasted energy inside a hybrid electric vehicle engine. The invention, a mechanical flywheel coupled to a rotor inside the engine, stores rotational energy during engine performance, subsequently feeding it back to assist with acceleration and braking. The devic…

Method of Detecting Infrared Energy Disclosure Number 200201147 Technology Summary Method and apparatus for detecting infrared energy. An IR imager based on this technology can approach the sensitivity of currently available high end (~$100K) IR imagers, but will be cheaper by two orders of magnitude , uncooled, high speed, and portable (small, lightweigh…

A small appliance developed at ORNL dehumidifies air and then recycles heat to warm water in a water heater. The device circulates cool, dry air in summer and warm air in winter. In addition, the invention can cut the energy required to run a conventional water heater by an estimated 50 per cent. Conventional electric water heater designs have reached the limit of efficiency. The ORNL technology…
