Houston-based Halliburton Labs, which provides a collaborative environment to advance clean energy, has selected Helix Power, Icarus RT, SolvCor, and Strayos to participate in its collaborative environment. These firms will be provided with mentorship, technical expertise and industrial capabilities to scale up their businesses.

Helix Power has designed its patented flywheel energy storage technology to support power generation and long-duration storage. The technology can be a core asset for designing clean, efficient and resilient power systems.

Icarus RT is working on technology for power boosting and energy storage to improve system performance and return on investment of commercial and utility scale solar photovoltaic systems. The system will be able to cool solar panels, collect rejected heat and convert the heat to more power to boost system efficiency and output.

SolvCor’ patented technology platform can improve heat transfer and can be used in industrial applications, like cooling systems and thermal storage. SolvCor liquids can be added to a chilled water-cooling system to increase cooling capacity and energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. The technology can be applied to industrial process cooling, district cooling, commercial buildings and data centers.

 Strayos’ technology can be helpful for mining and cement companies to extract raw materials efficiently by applying AI-powered tools to some steps in the mining value chain. Optimal extraction plans can be drawn by applying visual sensing technology and AI software to model subsurface geology, boosting yields to reduce waste and CO2 emissions.
