The Department of Energy is putting a greater focus on developing clean energy technologies. About $16 million in funding will support 54 projects at 12 national labs involving 58 private-sector partners, including two projects from NYSSGC member Brookhaven National Laboratory. The two projects, which focus on the development of electrodes and “core shell” electrocatalysts for fuel cells, will be funded at $100,000 each. More than 100 applications across the laboratory system were received before the selections were announced. The aim of the funding is to bring the energy projects from the research stage at National Laboratories to the marketplace in order to make them available to consumers. All projects will receive a match amount of non-federal funds to match the federal investment. Read more, including the full list of projects, at the DOE’s news release here.
