Laboratory: Sandia National Laboratories (Sandia) 

Technology: Non-invasive energy meter

Opportunity: This energy monitoring device is available for licensing or partnering options by interested industry parties.

Details: Sandia’s non-invasive energy meter measures energy from liquid flow systems (e.g., solar systems) by using a technique that senses when the system is running and then estimates the BTU energy production. 

Benefits: Aside from the ability to be installed on a system without cutting any pipes or connecting to any electrical systems, the Sandia meter also:

  • Is useful for both fixed and variable flow systems
  • Estimates BTU production
  • Is completely portable 

Potential Applications: This technology can be applied to both fixed and variable liquid flow systems, as well as used for energy measurement.
