To help with early-stage research and development, EWPanel applied for and received a small business grant through the National Science Foundation (NSF) as part of their SBIR Phase I program. The program offers non-dilutive seed funding to help early tech start-ups in their feasibility stage, both in customer discovery and prototyping. These are crucial steps towards commercialization.

As people walk through the northeast entry of UW-Madison's Union South, they may have found themselves generating electricity just by walking on the floor. Prof. Xudong Wang's research group demonstrates it's cellulose-based nanogenerator on campus! To see more, hit the "VIEW MORE" below!
Associate Professor Xudong Wang holds a prototype of the researchers’ energy harvesting technology, which uses wood pulp and harnesses nanofibers. The technology could be incorporated into flooring and convert footsteps on the flooring into usable electricity.
