January 22, 2018: Combined Energies Joins Venture Creations Incubator

LATHAM, NY - Combined Energies of Latham, NY has been accepted in to the RIT- Venture Creations incubator and its NYSERDA-sponsored Clean Energy Incubator (CEI) in Rochester, New York. The CEI hosts early stage clients commercializing clean energy technologies. Businesses eligible for admission to CEI include those involving "energy and power generation from renewable resources, energy efficient technologies in the power generation, energy storage, transportation, industrial, or building sectors that use alternative fuels or reduce the consumption of fossil fuels and provide environmental benefits.” 

Through the incubator, Combined Energies will have access to business coaches and resources at the Golisano Institute for Sustainability (GSI) on the RIT campus. Currently, Combined Energies is developing its patented DC to DC converter technology for use in the energy storage, electric vehicle, and renewable power generation markets.

November 8, 2017: Combined Energies Receives Notice of Patent Allowance from US Patent Office

Combined Energies has received a Notice of Patent Allowance from the US Patent Office for their Patent Application No. 15/209,707. This Patent Allowance enhances the original patent for DC-DC power conversion, Patent No. 9,413,271.   

April 30, 2017: Combined Energies Exhibits at Hydrogen + Fuel Cells 2017

In April, Combined Energies participated in the 2017 Hydrogen + Fuel Cells + Batteries Group Exhibit in Hannover, Germany. The company presented the Marathon LR, making numerous contacts with major international automotive, renewable power, fuel cell and hydrogen generation companies who see the high DC boost from Combined Energies’ technology as a potential enabler of future system designs. Combined Energies thanks NEESC and New York STEP for sponsoring their attendance at the Fair.

Combined Energies designs and develops the components and systems embodying these technologies. Its first development to gain commercial traction is the Marathon LR, a high boost, bi-directional DC-DC power converter that efficiently converts variable low voltage DC from distributed generation and energy storage into steady, programmable, high voltage DC output. Since its inception, Combined Energies has received over half a million dollars from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), and is a proud member of the New York Battery and Energy Storage Technology Consortium (NY-BEST).

October 27, 2014: Combined Energies LLC receives $249K NYSERDA Award to demonstrate Company's Low Voltage DC to DC Converter

Combined Energies LLC received a $249k award from NYSERDA to refine, integrate and demonstrate the company's advanced DC-DC converter technology. The demonstration, on an airport ground support vehicle, will use Combined Energy's Marathon LR DC-DC technology to integrate a power/energy module in parallel with the vehicle battery system. The solution will dampen current spikes and reduce the charge/discharge rate on the vehicles' primary battery resulting in longer battery life and substantially improved duty cycle.  

January 24, 2012: Combined Energies LLC receives $30K NYSERDA Award to Build Company’s Patent Portfolio

Combined Energies LLC received a $30k follow-on award from NYSERDA to structure and file an intellectual property portfolio that will support commercialization of the company's advanced DC-DC converter technology. 

August 3, 2011: Combined Energies LLC receives $199K NYSERDA Award to develop Low Voltage DC to DC Converter

A New York State team of Combined Energies (lead), Advanced Energy Conversion, and Espey Manufacturing & Electronics received a $199k award from NYSERDA to develop a novel, variable low voltage input DC to DC converter (LVC) which would allow dispersed generation technologies, such as fuel cells and battery backup systems to use commercially-available, high-efficiency solar inverters. This LVC will convert the low-voltage output of a fuel cell or battery system to a higher voltage that is compatible with today’s solar inverters. The LVC will allow a new generation of dispersed generation technologies to leverage readily available certified inverters for residential and light commercial grid interconnection without significant efficiency losses or costly development and certification efforts.
