US Army
Small Business Innovation
Research Quality Award

In 1992, the US Army sought to develop a refrigerator for Army field kitchens that could operate on military logistics fuels and could operate for thirty days without maintenance. Yankee developed a concept for such a system that led to an SBIR Phase II program for the US Army Natick Soldier Systems Command. In this program we built a full-sized logistics fuel fired absorption refrigerator and demonstrated its ability to meet all design objectives. Yankee Scientific was honored for this achievement by the US Army with the SBIR Phase II Quality Award in 1994.

100 Most Technologically Significant New Products of the Year

Yankee Scientific developed the revolutionary “Quantum Leap” residential heating system that became the premier product for ECR International, one of the leading manufacturers of heating equipment in the United States. This product has received a 1996 National “Certificate of Recognition” Award from the Secretary of the US Department of Energy. This new product was also selected by R&D Magazine as “One of the 100 Most Technologically Significant New Products of the Year” and received an R&D 100 Award in 1998. This project is a prime example of Yankee Scientifics ability to implement advanced technology in a real-world economic environment.
Popular Mechanics
Breakthrough Award

In 2000, Yankee Scientific and ECR International formed a Joint Venture, called Climate Energy, aimed at developing the first affordable micro-combined heat and power (CHP) technology for use in the typical American home. This effort became a great success with the Yankee’s development of the freewatt® micro-CHP system that can heat a home while generating up to half the homes electric energy needs. By combining the production of power and heat together the freewatt® is able to cut the carbon emissions for the home by up to 50%.

Popular Mechanics Magazine began the Breakthrough Awards program in 2005 as a means of recognizing excellence in design and engineering. In 2006 Climate Energy was awarded the prestigious Popular Mechanics Breakthrough Award for the freewatt® warm air micro-CHP system.
