DOE Provides $12.3 Million for Crosscutting Energy Projects
DOE announced on September 10th that it will award $12.3 million to 21 projects that will advance both energy efficiency and fossil energy technologies. The projects, managed by universities and companies in 13 states, will run from one to three years and include research on materials, fuels and chemicals, sensors and controls, and energy conversions. Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham said the crosscutting research will advance "key technology areas, such as solid-state lighting, membranes that produce hydrogen, advanced fuels and chemicals, solid oxide fuel cells, as well as process sensors and controls."
