FloDesign wind prototype
The Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy was funded last year to promote research in clean-energy technologies. The following is a sampling of companies who exhibited this week at the ARPA-E Summit and are seeking, or have already received, government grants.
FloDesign Wind Turbines has already received a Department of Energy grant to further develop a wind turbine that uses principles of jet engines to improve turbine performance. Pictured here is a model of the turbine that the company says can be used as part of wind farms. The company last month raised $34.5 million and hired CEO Lars Andersen, who was last head of operations in China for Danish wind turbine maker Vestas.
