Infinia, InnovaTek Win U.S. Grants

Two companies from the Tri-Cities, Kennewick, WA-based Infinia and Richland, WA-based InnovaTek, have received commercialization grants from the U.S. Department of Energy. Infinia, the developer of solar power generators, is getting $1.5 million for what the Department of Energy calls a “high-efficiency maintenance-free cryocooler” for high-temperature superconductors. InnovaTek will receive $2.2 million to generate power from what the DOE calls “an integrated biomass reformer and solid oxide fuel cell.” Infinia and InnovaTek were among 33 companies around the country to get the government grants, which totaled $57 million.

    I understand that Infinia of Kennawick, WA has received US governement grant money to develop a new solar powered generator. Did you also know that they have sent the manufacturing of the internal generator parts off shore. How do I know this, I just lost the bid for the machine work to China. Good job Obama.
