Energy Related Devices Inc.

Bio: Robert Hockaday is the principal investigator and innovator of Energy Related Devices. He was a member of the Los Alamos National Laboratory staff from 1984 to 1994, when he took Entrepreneurial Leave of Absence to pursue full-time development of technologies for Energy Related Devices, a company he founded in 1987. Energy Related Devices has researched and developed fuel cells, solar cells, windmills, catalytic heaters, battery vents, and reactive apparel.
The theme of the company is “Nature provides the models for energy solutions.” In 1998 Energy Related Devices established a relationship with Manhattan Scientifics, a publicly-traded company to develop the MicroFuel Cell and micro-mirror solar cell technology. The MicroFuel Cell technology in 2005 was licensed by Energy Related Devices to manufacturers in Singapore and Korea. In April 2003, using goggle technology and intellectual property developed by Energy Related Devices, an eyewear company, Arena LLC, was created. Energy Related Devices has created, patented, and licensed Membrane Catalytic Heaters to a Japanese company and two US companies. During his tenure at Los Alamos, Dr. Hockaday was the principal investigator of projects involving the development, calibration and analysis of high-speed x-ray diagnostic experiments on underground nuclear tests. He also conducted plasma experiments at Los Alamos National Laboratory, Livermore National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratory, and Triniti Laboratory in Troisk, Russia. For his innovative research and leadership qualities, he received two Awards of Excellence and a Distinguished Performance Award from Los Alamos National Laboratory.
