Science for Our Nation's Energy Future: Energy Frontier Research Centers Summit & Forum
Date:3/4/2011

Washington, D.C. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced the first Science for Our Nation's Energy Future: Energy Frontier Research Centers Summit & Forum to be held on May 25-27, 2011, at the Renaissance Penn Quarter hotel in Washington D.C. The Summit will bring together scientists and energy policy leaders to explore the challenges and opportunities in applying America's extraordinary scientific and technical resources to critical energy needs and will highlight early successes of the DOE's Energy Frontier Research Centers and promote collaboration across the national energy enterprise.

"The Energy Frontier Research Centers are key elements of our national strategy to accelerate the scientific breakthroughs for tomorrow's energy technologies," said Secretary of Energy Steven Chu. "This meeting provides a context for collaboration across the national energy enterprise and an opportunity to hear about the most promising and exciting advances the Centers are making."

The Summit will underscore the unique roles and early achievements of the DOE's 46 Energy Frontier Research Center. U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu; John Hennessy, President of Stanford University; Mark Little, Senior VP and Director of GE Global Research and Eric Isaacs, Director of Argonne National Laboratory will be among the scientific leaders speaking at the Summit.

During the three-day Summit, invited guests and attendees will delve into a wide range of energy topics during in-depth parallel technical sessions and poster presentations. Focus areas will include electrical energy storage, fuels from sunlight, carbon capture and sequestration, solar energy, solid state lighting, advanced nuclear energy systems, materials by design, and novel materials synthesis--all areas critical to the Nation's search for revolutionary new energy solutions.

In 2009, DOE established integrated, multi-investigator Centers to conduct fundamental scientific research in areas directly applicable to energy technologies. The Centers, selected through scientific peer review, bring together teams of top researchers from universities, national laboratories, nonprofit organizations, and for-profit firms, working on cutting-edge science aimed at laying the foundation for major energy technology breakthroughs.
