UC Riverside to lead new Energy Frontier Research Center project
Date:6/19/2014

WASHINGTON A UC Riverside-led research project is among the 32 named today by U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz as Energy Frontier Research Centers (EFRCs), designed to accelerate the scientific breakthroughs needed to build a new 21st-century energy economy in the United States.

"Spins and Heat in Nanoscale Electronic Systems" (SHINES) will receive $12 million over four years from the Department of Energy. The lead researcher is UC Riverside Professor of Physics Jing Shi, who will work with researchers from seven universities.

SHINES is one of 10 new projects announced today, along with 22 other projects receiving new funding based on achievements to date. The Department of Energy announced a total of $100 million in funding to support fundamental advances in energy production, storage, and use.

"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," Secretary Moniz said. "The funding we're announcing today will help fuel innovation."

He said the intent of the Energy Frontier Research Centers is to make fundamental advances in solar energy, electrical energy storage, carbon capture and sequestration, materials and chemistry by design, biosciences, and extreme environments.

"I am happy to hear the news," said Shi, the UCR physics professor who has put together an interdisciplinary team of researchers from UC Riverside, UCLA, Johns Hopkins University, Arizona State University, University of Texas, Austin and Colorado State University, Fort Collins.

"I'm looking forward to seeing the scientific advances that they come up with," said Michael Pazzani, UC Riverside's Vice Chancellor for Research and Economic Development. "This is exac
