NREL research earns 3 prestigious R&D 100 Awards

ney, who developed IPOS with NREL colleague Luigi Gentile Polese. "What's novel about IPOS is that it's not just an occupancy sensor. It combines a lot of capabilities occupancy detection and classification; how many people are in the space; are they sitting still or moving around? It offers the potential of putting light or ventilation only where it's needed. All functions are combined in a single sensor, and it's done in a way that is more robust than current sensor technology."

In an office environment, IPOS can detect if there are people staying late, no matter how still they're sitting, and deliver that information so the building uses just the lights that are needed no more, no less. The information can also be used to make instantaneous decisions on the amount of ventilation, air conditioning, or daylighting the occupants of the office need at that particular moment. And it can signal when security officers should be alerted. IPOS raises the accuracy of occupancy detection from about 75% to the upper 90% range and that converts directly to energy savings.

NREL's IPOS team included Luigi Gentile Polese, Larry Brackney, and Alex Swindler.

IBC Measures Heat to Design Longer-Lasting and Safer Batteries

Isothermal Battery Calorimeters (IBCs) developed by NREL and NETZSCH come to market following a 70% year-over-year jump in sales of hybrid-electric and plug-in vehicles.

These IBCs are the only calorimeters in the world capable of performing the precise thermal measurements needed to make safer, longer-lasting and more cost-effective lithium-ion batteries.

"The IBC allows for the development of new thermal management techniques and strategies to ensure that the batteries in plug-in vehicles meet their warranty specifications and provide the needed power during their life. The IBC is positioning manufacturers to successfully introduce advanced vehicles into the U.S. marketplace," said Senior Engineer Matt Ke
