Gainesville, FL – April 30, 2010 – Accelerated Data Works (dba Acceleration) has been awarded a phase 1 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the US Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science. The grant is to support Acceleration’s work with energy visualization on www.Gainesville-Green.com, under the topic of “Collaboration, Scientific Visualization, and Data Understanding.”
Acceleration submitted a grant proposal for an Energy Tracking Software Platform:
This project will create an interactive energy tracking and visualization platform that supports decreasing electric, water, and gas usage.
