Adaptive Materials lands $750,000 contract to develop renewable energy software
Adaptive Materials, a Pittsfield Township-based fuel cell manufacturer, will use a new $750,000 federal grant to continue developing software that would improve the military's renewable energy usage in the battlefield, the company said today.
The latest funding award means the firm has landed government awards worth more than $10.9 million this year.

The next phase of the project: Giving the software the ability to pick the most efficient renewable energy power sources based on specific battlefield conditions.
“Being able to use a mix of fuel cells, batteries and other energy sources on the battlefield reduces logistical challenges and increases overall effectiveness," Adaptive Materials co-founder and chief business officer Michelle Crumm said in a statement.
