NanoFlex Power Corporation Extends Research Agreement with the University of Southern California and University of Michigan

NanoFlex Power Corporation announced that it has signed an extension to its agreement with the University of Southern California and its subcontractor, the University of Michigan to continue their research and development of thin film photovoltaic cells, including both gallium arsenide and organic photovoltaics technologies. This agreement extends the research partnership between NanoFlex Power and USC and the University of Michigan into 2021. Under the agreements, NanoFlex Power will provide funding for its research partners to optimize the power conversion efficiency of both GaAs and OPV cells, demonstrate low-cost production processes, and improve operating lifetimes. As with prior agreements, all intellectual property derived from the research program will be licensed exclusively to NanoFlex Power.

Hitachi, Ltd. Begins Joint Research with The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, The University of Michigan, and The University of California, Berkeley Targeting Resource-Renewable Boiling Water Reactors

Hitachi Ltd. announced that they have begun joint research with three American universities - the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the University of Michigan (U-M), and the University of California, Berkeley (UCB) - aimed at using Transuranium Elements as fuel, and the development of Resource-renewable Boiling Water Reactors (RBWRs) that enable the effective use of uranium resources. Through this joint research, Hitachi plans to evaluate the performance and safety of RBWRs, which is being developed by Hitachi and Hitachi GE Nuclear Energy Ltd., and to study plans for testing with a view toward practical applications with each university. As one solution to this challenge, Hitachi has undertaken the development of RBWRs based on Boiling Water Reactor technologies, which already have an extensive track record of applications in commercial nuclear reactors. RBWRs could potentially use TRUs separated and refined from spent fuel as fuel along with uranium. Although RBWRs use new core fuel concepts to burn TRUs, they use the same non-core components as current Boiling Water Reactors (BWRs), including safety systems and turbines. As such, RBWRs are unique in that extensive experience accumulated through the application of BWRs can be leveraged to achieve efficient nuclear fission in TRUs. In this next stage of joint research, utilizing the knowledge and insights acquired through the previous stage, and applying the more accurate analysis methods developed by MIT, U-M, and UCB, Hitachi will continue to evaluate the safety and performance of the new reactors, and will study plans for tests with a view toward practical applications.
