Avatar Sustainable Technologies takes papermill waste and processes it into fermentable sugars that can be converted to environmental friendly commercial products, including several biofuels and bioplastics applications. The commercial potential of Avatar is to use the waste fiber rejects from paper mills to make bioproducts, improve the sustainability of the paper industry and offset the use of petroleum based products. This process will not only provide greener, degradable and economical alternatives, but also sustainable solutions by using a resource that is currently being landfilled.
Ducted Turbines International (DTI) is a wind turbine company with a focus to provide the lowest cost per kWh in the small turbine market. DTI’s ducted wind turbine design produces more than 2X the energy of a conventional wind turbine of the same rotor diameter, which translates into a lower cost per kWh to the customer, and a reduction in the time for the return on your investment to half of what it takes for small wind turbines on the market today.
Cocoon Construct offers an innovative and cost-effective integrated systems approach to building construction and major renovation that drives buildings toward net-zero energy consumption and can be delivered at scale. The company has the potential to drive industry transformation – initially for building retrofits and eventually for new construction. While the solution takes a unique approach to project delivery, the technologies and components comprising the solution are technically sound, commercially available and widely used in the building industry. The Retrofit Solution’s components include a high R-value prefabricated building envelope of expanded polystyrene finished with windows and doors preinstalled; integrated, modular HVAC components; renewable energy generation; and electrical/building monitoring upgrades– along with building O&M and performance guarantees for the lifetime of the retrofit.

Farm to Flame Energy will manufacture biomass powered generators and grinders. These generators are smokeless, odorless, and able to operate with any given biomass feedstock. These generators will initially be exported to Africa because of the large market for microgrid systems. Initial connections have been made with customers, including a private utilities company in the Democratic Republic of Congo, as well as with the Liberian government.
Good People Energy Technologies is a “Green Tech” company located in Cooperstown, NY, focused on the fast-growing energy savings aftermarket. They believe that people want to save energy and theirr purpose is to make it as easy as possible through innovative products, marketing, and partnerships. Their initial product is a patented aftermarket controller upgrade for small fan PSC motors (your typical single phase AC motors) in HVAC systems to provide “set it and forget it” adaptive variable speed fan control. It works with furnaces, fan coils, PTACs, and split systems and is 100% compatible with most other aftermarket energy solutions like insulation, programmable thermostats, and maintenance programs.
Hestia Technologies seeks to inform homeowners on the next best steps to reduce their heating costs and energy. The app delivers individualized reports by analyzing heat gains and losses including insulation and draftiness. It also allows users to see the heating bill savings due to suggested modifications.

Vistex Composites is an engineering services and manufacturing company, commercializing a revolutionary new manufacturing process for making products from advanced composite materials. Designed to be efficient, green, and low cost, Vistex's Pressure Focusing Layer - PFL™ - technology can produce autoclave quality (or better) components in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost. Vistex’s process, through the use of the customized Pressure Focusing Layer™ (PFL™) achieves the uniform pressure and uniform temperature required to make a composite by a much more efficient approach as compared to autoclaving. A formed uncured composite is sandwiched between a temperature controlled rigid mold, the curing mold, the PFL™, and a rigid compression mold. The PFL™ thickness and geometry varies across the composite as determined using Vistex’s proprietary modeling and optimization. This variation ensures that when the mold set is in compression the composite undergoes uniform pressurization. The process is compatible with essentially any thermoset resin system on the market, or can process a range of thermoplastics.
