Stony Brook incubator programs: $750k DOE commercialization grant to CEBIP client ThermoLift & new tenant buncee to Calverton Business IncubatorSubmitted by admin on August 17, 2013 - 12:02pm
Two recent milestones from different programs at our supporting member the Stony Brook University incubator programs:
- ThermoLift, a client of the NYSERDA-sponsored Clean Energy Business Incubator Program being incubated at the university's Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center, received a $750,000 award from the U.S. Department of Energy to develop commercial prototypes of its heat pump technology. More information from the DOE news release and coverage in Newsday;
- buncee, a mulitimedia startup that employs Stony Brook graduates and is engaged with the university's NYS Center of Excellence for Wireless and Information Technology, is the newest tenant at the Calverton Business Incubator, taking 1,230 square feet. More information in a university news release and coverage in Newsday and ThreeVillage Patch.
Congratulations to both incubator tenant/clients! UPDATE (8/31): ThermoLift (and Solar Cool) were visited on Startup Day Across America by U.S. Rep. Tim Bishop.

Quantum Loop Solutions, which builds software systems for small wineries, is the newest tenant of The Technology Farm, also known as the Cornell Agriculture and Food Technology Park. An affiliate of the incubator program at the Lennox Tech Enterprise Center of High Tech Rochester, the company won third place in the 2012 Rochester Regional Buiness Plan Competition.
Company founder Sam Weiner explains he moved from the Rochester area to the Technology Farm in Geneva in order to be near the center of the Finger Lakes wine industry. The City of Geneva and the Technology Farm are rapidly emerging as a center of technical support for this sector. The Tech Farm is building a new facility to house the Viticulture Program of Finger Lakes Community College and plans one day also to host the USDA/ARS Grape Genetics Research Unit currently based across the road, at Cornell's New York State Agricultural Experiment Station.

Parker Hannifin Corporation, the industrial controls giant based in Cleveland, announced the first field installation of a combined heat and power soid-oxide fuel-cell system codeveloped with Watt Fuel Cell Corp., a Port Washington-based client of the NYSERDA-supported Clean Energy Business Incubator Program (CEBIP) at Stony Brook University. For more information, see the Parker Hannifin news release. UPDATE (8/31): Watt Fuel Cell was visited on Startup Day Across America by U.S. Rep. Steve Israel (D-Huntington).
ThermoLift, startup with advanced heating/cooling system, to benefit from engineering research at Stony Brook University, arranged by CEBIP clean-energy incubatorSubmitted by admin on July 30, 2013 - 10:50am
ThermoLift, Inc., a startup company that is developing an advanced, natural-gas-fueled air conditioner/heat pump, will estimate potential energy savings available to users of its system through advanced simulation models developed by engineering faculty and graduate students at Stony Brook University. The faculty time is supported by a state grant facilitated through the NYSERDA-sponsored Clean Energy Business Incubator Program (CEBIP).
The case of ThermoLift is a nice example of how university-affiliated business incubators can coordinate multiple resources for startup companies. ThermoLift is one of the incubator-stage companies housed at the university's Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center and is further assisted in business development by CEBIP, a component of the university's overall incubator program.
The money to support the simulation project comes from the Strategic Partnership for Industrial Resurgence (SPIR), a state-funded program available to startups at Stony Brook University and other SUNY research campuses. For more information, see the company news release.
