SANTA CRUZ, California, 25 October 2021 / PRNewswire / – infinite Corporation, an emerging start-up primarily engaged in improving the reliability and long-term sustainability of renewable energy, won the Cleantech Open Western final.

These tests help refine machine learning algorithms for infiniRel’s Energy Cardio Graph â„¢ technology that helps predict inverter failure, a program funded by the Department of Energy’s American-Made Solar Challenge, where the infiniRel team was a finalist in 2020.

The Cleantech Open (CTO) is the oldest and largest cleantech startup accelerator program, with a mission to find, fund and nurture entrepreneurs with ideas to solve our biggest environmental and energy challenges.

While renewable energy in all its forms is key to our global net zero effort (the Paris Climate Agreement limits carbon emissions to 1.5-2 ° Celsius), a major risk of electrification is the unreliability of its core technology.

“We need an early warning system that predicts power outages, including blackouts, and upgrades our new technologies to be ‘infinitely reliable’,” says founder and CEO of ‘infiniRel, bert handjob, on the company’s mission.

The exponential growth of renewable energies and the demand for electrification emphasizes the need for reliable power electronics. InfiniRel’s predictive technology is a massively scalable early warning system that predicts power outages for critical electronic components, using proprietary algorithms and machine learning.

Sig Gonzalez, a senior technical staff member at Sandia’s Distributed Energy Technology (DETL) Lab worked with infiniRel in tests conducted with a Department of Energy voucher American-made solar challenge. Gonzalez said: “If you can identify what’s going on through the signatures on the DC bus, maybe the AC bus, and take action before there is an event, I think it really helps. the LCOE, the life cycle energy cost of these products, and helps the DoE meet its goals. “

infiniRel previously won the California Sustainable Energy Entrepreneur Development (CalSEED) Concept Award. The CalSEED initiative is made possible by the California Energy Commission and funded by the Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC) program. CalSEED is administered by New Energy Nexus.
