Re:  ARPA-E Conference Notes Gaylord Convention Center Feb 28 – Mar 2 2011

AWT’s participation in the ARPA-E innovation summit was a tremendous success both as to the exposure gained and as to the feedback received from some of America’s top companies.   This conference helped validate our technology and anticipated future commercial approach which has strong business promise.  

During the course of three days, our team met with several individuals from a wide range of Fortune 100 Companies, VCs, and Legal/Business experts.  While the many contacts we established are too numerous to list, below are some brief highlights and next steps.  

• Private meetings were held with large corporate entities.  These scheduled  meetings included high level technical experts and potential “business users” of AWT’s patent pending technology.   There are strong near term opportunities from this group.  
• During the course of the “Showcase” exhibits (two 2.5 hour exhibit times), several walk up meetings with individuals from the VC community and additional corporate contacts were held.   Calls and/or direct follow up meetings are already scheduled with some of these contacts.  

• Feedback received from these contacts was very encouraging and helps to provide  further direction for “work” to be done by our team.  Specific work efforts should focus on development of Version 2.0 prototype, securing  and expanding AWT’s Isothermal Turbo Compressor intellectual property, and filling in more details around our short and long term business plan.  

Thank you all for your tremendous support!

While there are many energy saving options in the HVAC world that are touting higher seer ratings they are almost exclusively dependent upon smart technologies to monitor usage patterns, scroll compressors and incorporating solar assistance. While these improvements certainly create energy savings they are essentially propping up an old technology. At AWT we have changed the way HVAC is done. By utilizing our patented isothermal turbo compressor we have increased efficiency and performance by changing the method of compression. That can take energy efficiency and energy savings as well and $$ saving to a whole new level.
