As national day for college football prospects 1 February hummed football fans on signing, power also to picks from one builds other universities pool of talent.

January 20 DOE announced two university research opportunities, SunShot initiative, a program to promote, which aims, drastically to reduce the total cost of the American solar energy.

In this sense, DOE provides up to $10 million to partners in University projects to develop and demonstrate heat transfer fluids. The multidisciplinary University research initiative: high operational temperature liquids call looking for applicants to develop innovative liquids, which are more stable than current technologies at temperatures greater than 800 ° c. The goal is improving the efficiency of the technology focus solar energy and solar energy costs lower.

The second option is a second round for the awards SunShot postdoctoral research initiative. The awards, by the Office of energy efficiency and renewable energy, provide an annual grant as other advantages. Read the full story at DOE's energy blog.
