NoMIS Power Group News Release: SUNY Poly Spinoff NoMIS Power Group Awarded over $498,000 in Funding from ARPA-E for Transformational Energy Technology
Albany, NY –
“We are very excited to have ARPA-E support for NoMIS Power Group’s transformative, enabling technology for the electrified economy and the global effort to tackle climate change,” said co-founder Adam Morgan.
NoMIS Power Group is a high-tech start-up company spun out of SUNY Polytechnic Institute (SUNY Poly) in Albany, NY, working to accelerate the clean tech revolution through the application of novel semiconductor devices and power packaging materials for the global power electronics market. Founded by SUNY Poly postdoc Adam Morgan, SUNY Poly Professors Dr. Woongje Sung and Dr. Shadi Shahedipour-Sandvik, as well as Ohio State University Professor Dr. Anant Agarwal, NoMIS Power Group brings together unique US-based expertise across the power semiconductor, power packaging, and power electronics fields. Notably, NoMIS Power Group’s world-leading expertise in the application of SiC has made the company a go-to resource for R&D and manufacturing leaders seeking to leverage the transformative potential of this novel material.
With ARPA-E backing, NoMIS aims to bring SiC semiconductors and power modules into the mainstream at less than half the cost of today’s commercial-off-the-shelf-solutions. In the process, NoMIS will play a key role in the development of a domestic U.S.-based supply chain for this critical technology; helping reduce energy costs for American consumers and proliferate electrified transportation and renewable energy infrastructure.
