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.
