DOE's advanced battery start energy innovation hub

Saturday, February 11, 2012

Innovation to start a hub for cutting-edge research on batteries and energy storage, with an investment of up to $120 million over five years announced their plans for a new energy DOE on 7 February. Hub focus on accelerated research and development of electrochemical energy storage for the transport and electricity the batteries and energy storage. The hub is financed at up to $20 million in fiscal year 2012, and guided by the basic energy Sciences programme he DOE's Office of science.

Universities, laboratories, nonprofit organizations, and private companies are allowed to compete and are called on partnerships, when submitting their proposals. Interdisciplinary research and development hub conducted over the new energy innovation will help to advance innovative energy storage and battery technologies. These technologies can be employed to improve the reliability and efficiency of the electrical network; Technologies for renewable energy, better as part of the electrical system to integrate; and the nation reduce dependence on foreign oil with electric and hybrid vehicles.

Energy innovation hubs to scientists and engineers in intellectual disciplines to quickly accelerate scientific discoveries and shorten the path from the laboratory with technological innovation to bring development and commercial deployment of critical energy technologies. With applications by 31 May 2012 full due 1 March 2012, apply the declarations of intent. The award selection is expected this summer. Find the press release of DOE, the funding opportunity announcement and the energy innovation hubs website.
