Stanford faculty awarded $2.2 million for innovative energy research
Date:9/17/2012

Stanford University's Precourt Institute for Energy (PIE), TomKat Center for Sustainable Energy and Precourt Energy Efficiency Center (PEEC) have awarded nine faculty seed grants totaling $2.2 million for promising new research in clean technology and energy efficiency.

Seed funding supports early work on concepts that have the potential for very high impact on energy production and use. A committee of Stanford faculty and senior staff awarded the grants to researchers from a broad range of disciplines, including engineering, economics and psychology.

"We received 30 proposals from across the campus," said PIE Director Lynn Orr, a professor of energy resources engineering and member of the selection committee. "We looked for projects where the investigators had moved into new areas of energy research for which the potential payoffs justified taking the risk associated with early-stage proposals. After a lively debate, we chose nine projects with the strongest potential for impacting the supply or use of energy."

Precourt Institute grants

The Precourt Institute for Energy, the umbrella organization for energy research and education at Stanford, will fund the following four studies:

Nanostructured Polymers for High-Performance Batteries: This project explores the use of specially designed nanostructured polymers to make high-energy, low-cost, flexible and stretchable batteries. The goal is to produce stable, high-capacity lithium-ion batteries and eventually develop novel all-polymer batteries at scale. Principal Investigator (PI): Zhenan Bao, chemical engineering. Co-PI: Yi Cui, materials science and engineering (Stanford)/photon science (SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory).

Ultrathin Light Absorbers for Solar Cells: One way to lower the cost of solar power is to dramatically reduce the thickness of light-absorbing layers in solar cells. The goal of this project is to develop novel, light-trapping na
