Energy Dept Pumps $100M into Energy Research Projects; Ernest Moniz Comments

Ernest MonizThe Energy Department has awarded $100 million in funding for 32 energy research initiatives.

Grantees will work on research projects for energy production, storage and use under the second round of the Energy Frontier Research Centers program, DOE said Wednesday.

“Today, we are mobilizing some of our most talented scientists to join forces and pursue the discoveries and breakthroughs that will lay the foundation for our nation’s energy future,” said Sec. Ernest Moniz.

Each research center has received between $2 million and $4 million per year for up to four fiscal years and the EFRC program application will be available every two years.

Research projects involve advances in solar energy, electrical energy storage, carbon capture and sequestration, materials and chemistry by design, biosciences and extreme environments, DOE says.
