DOE awards $377 million in funding for 46 energy frontier research centers
Date:8/7/2009

aterials in systems for the conversion of sunlight into electricity.

  • University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, MI) $19.5 million for five years to study complex material structures on the nanoscale to identify key features for their potential use as materials to convert solar energy and heat to electricity.

  • University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill, NC) $17.5 million for five years to synthesize new molecular catalysts and light absorbers and integrate them into nanoscale architectures for improved generation of fuels and electricity from sunlight.

  • Northwestern University (Evanston, IL) $19 million for five years to synthesize, characterize, and understand new classes of materials under conditions far from equilibrium relevant to solar energy conversion, storage of electricity and hydrogen, and catalysis.

  • University of Notre Dame (Notre Dame, IN) $18.5 million for five years to understand and control, at the nanoscale, materials that contain actinides (radioactive heavy elements such as uranium and plutonium) to lay the scientific foundation for advanced nuclear energy systems.

  • Pennsylvania State University (University Park, PA) $21 million for five years to dramatically increase our fundamental knowledge of the physical structure of bio-polymers in plant cell walls to provide a basis for improved methods for converting biomass into fuels.

  • Purdue University (West Lafayette, IN) $20 million for five years to use fundamental knowledge about the interactions between catalysts and plant cell walls to design improved processes for the conversion of biomass to energy, fuels, or chemicals.

  • University of Southern California (Los Angeles, CA) $12.5 million for five years to simultaneously explore the light absorbing and emitting properties of hybrid inorganic-organic materials for solar energy conversion and solid state lighting.

  • University of Texas, Austin (Austin, TX)
