Advanced Energy Incubator

Located in the Research and Development Park on the campus of Stony Brook University, the Advanced Energy Incubator is space that is home to a few companies within the Advanced Energy Center.

The Advanced Energy Center ( is a true partnership of academic institutions, research institutions, energy providers and companies. Its mission is innovative energy research, education and technology deployment with a focus on efficiency, conservation, renewable energy and nanotechnology applications for new and novel sources of energy. All incubator tenants and program participants have potential access to a comprehensive array of business, science and technology resources through Stony Brook's Economic Development groups including:

  • Dedicated company space rental through "facility use permits"
  • Management and business development assistance
  • Faculty and student talent
  • Specialized research facilities on campus

Current Incubator Tenants:


Allied Microbiota


Allied Microbiota was found to bring low-cost sustainable solutions to treat these recalcitrant pollutants using environmentally friendly microbial solutions. Founded in 2017 by Dr. Ray Sambrotto and Frana James from Columbia University, Allied Microbiota has developed methods of bioremediation using naturally isolated bacterial cultures and their enzymes for remediation of soil, sediments and groundwater using techniques like composting, and flow through reactors. Offering great advantages to expensive treatments for recalcitrant remediation like incineration and moving to a classified landfills, our microbes destroy recalcitrant contamination, providing users with remarkable cost savings, reducing PCB levels by 80 percent in few days. We are also expanding our focus on improving the fermentation process and strain development to develop new bio-chemicals and enzymes for industrial and environmental applications

Allied Microbiota's founding and success has been supported by NYSERDA's PowerBridgeNY, one of two Proof-Of-Concept Centers (POCC) that the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), supports. We are also working with the Clean Energy Business Incubator Program(CEBIP) at Stony Brook.

BAH Holdings LLC


Since its inception in 2005, BAH Holdings, LLC’s (“BAH”) mission has been to research and  develop new gas optical detection technologies to specific client specifications and applications. for select markets. These new optical detectors utilize either our patented Correlation Interference Polarization Spectroscopy (”CIPS”) optical technology or are the result of newly patented technologies developed by our in-house scientists. Recently BAH acquired Power Photonic Corporation (“PPC”), thus adding narrow-band semiconductor synthesis to our core competencies. We are currently working on devices for the detection of numerous gases for safety, environmental, medical and homeland security applications. BAH is the parent of PPC, CIPS Technology, LLC, IR Environmental, LLC and BAH-Med, LLC.

Chem- Graduated



Chemcubed is a collaborative effort of seasoned technical and marketing professionals in the Printing Industry of over 20 years to form a company for strategic materials in the growing additive manufacturing and 3D printing Industry. 

New market applications are emerging daily.  However, most materials that can be processed by AM lack the  performance requirements beyond the concept of “hand” models.

ChemCubed formulates jettable nanocomposite formulations that are application specific, embodying customer-specified physical, electrical, thermal and chemical properties.  Successful applications include 3D printed optical lenses, inkjet printed electronics production and functional structural materials.  

These are just a few examples of capabilities available for, but not limited to,  INKJET  and  SLA  printing technologies.
