ClearSign Combustion Corporation
Interesting combustor tech, that uses a high E field to manipulate flame ions, rather than trying to move to a plasma combustor and it's associated energy penalty. Marked as a means of normalizing the heat in a flame so you don't get hot spots that produce NOx or cold spots that have incomplete combustion.

Twin Creeks Technologies - Hyperion
Apparently these guys have a proton accelerator that operates at both high voltage and current, approximately 10x better than current proton accelerators (for what I assume are semiconductor applications...). Useful for making thin wafers for semiconductors, but the proton accelerator part is more interesting.

Copper hexacyanoferrate battery electrodes with long cycle life and high power : Nature Communications : Nature Publishing Group
High cycle durability cathode material, if matched with a hydrated potassium ion aqueous electrolyte. Still searching for a suitable anode though. May be suitable for grid energy storage due to ease of manufacturing and cost.

I think they are basically trying to sell a thin film prismatic lens array with spectrum waveguiding as an aftermarket upgrade to existing solar PV systems. Wait, now they are doing photoelectrochemical hydrogen production with the intent of synthetic natural gas production? Seems they are close to the magical 1.23V open circuit voltage needed for direct solar hydrogen production.
