Obama administration announces more than $327 million in Recovery Act funding for science research
Date:8/5/2009

Washington, D.C. U.S Department of Energy Secretary Steven Chu announced today that more than $327 million in new funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will go toward scientific research, instrumentation, and laboratory infrastructure projects. Ten of DOE's national laboratories in six states will be receiving funds, along with researchers at institutions of higher learning across the nation.

"These new initiatives will help to create new jobs while allowing the U.S. to maintain its scientific leadership and economic competitiveness ," said Secretary Steven Chu. "The projects provide vital funding and new tools for research aimed at strengthening America's energy security and tackling some of science's toughest challenges."

Among the new approved projects are:

  • Several initiatives to advance civilian supercomputing, in which DOE national laboratories now hold the global lead;

  • New equipment for the DOE Bioenergy Research Centers, the world's most advanced centers for fundamental research on biofuels;

  • New equipment for DOE Joint Genome Institute, the world's largest genomic sequencing facility for non-medical, DOE mission-related research in bioenergy, climate, and environmental remediation;

  • Improvements at high-intensity light sources--today's cutting edge tools for advanced research in energy, materials science, and a host of other fields;

  • Facilities upgrades and new equipment at several national laboratories and universities for fusion energy research;

  • Expanded funding for integrated climate research, which blends climate modeling with modeling of human factors such as economics and choices about energy production, consumption, and use;

  • Analysis of Smart Grid technology development, to improve the efficiencies of the nation's electricity grid;
