The Precourt Institute for Energy Efficiency has awarded its second round of competitive research grants to members of the Stanford faculty. Seven proposals will receive a total of $824,000 in seed grants over the next year for projects designed to promote energy-efficient behaviors and technologies.
"Our objective is to radically improve energy efficiency within a decade," said John P. Weyant, deputy director of the institute. "We're confident that the seven projects we've funded will have that kind of payoff."
The institute's steering committee received 12 proposals from researchers in the Graduate School of Business and the schools of Medicine, Engineering and Humanities and Sciences, Weyant said. "It's a very diversified group of faculty from across the campus and includes two projects with partners in India and Korea," he said.
The following seven projects will receive funding from the institute:
The institute plans to call for a third round of faculty grant proposals later this year.
