DOE Funding Opportunity: Advanced Components for Next-Generation Electric Machines
DOE's Next Generation Electric Machines (NGEM) program announced up to $20 million is now available to develop a new generation of energy efficient, high power density, high speed integrated MV drive systems for a wide variety of critical energy applications. This funding opportunity is focused on developing medium voltage (MV) integrated drive systems that leverage the benefits of state-of-the-art power electronics (i.e., wide band gap devices) with high RPM, high power density and energy efficient megawatt (MW) class electric motors in three primary areas: (1) chemical and petroleum refining industries; (2) natural gas infrastructure; and (3) general industrial applications.
