- Lawrenceville Plasma Physics is a high-tech research and development corporation specializing in applications of plasma physics, including fusion power and intense X-ray sources. The company's lead project is the development of an ecologically safe fusion energy generator using a device called the dense plasma focus (DPF) and hydrogen-boron fuel. They call this "Focus Fusion." This work was initially funded by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and is now backed by more than forty private investors, including the Abell Foundation of Baltimore. LPP's patented technology and peer-reviewed science are guiding the design of a modular 5MW electric generator that could be mass manufactured and produce power more cheaply than any other energy source.
- Eos Energy Storage is developing a novel, low-cost energy storage solution for the electric utility and transportation industries. Eos's mission is to produce cost-effective energy storage solutions that are less expensive than both other battery technologies and the most economical incumbent alternatives used to provide the same service, such as gas turbines for power generation.
