DOE Funds U Nationwide Energy Centers

The University of Minnesota has been awarded two grants from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) totaling $13.1 million over the next five years to fund two nationwide centers: The Center for the Study of Charge Transfer and Charge Transport in Photoactivated Systems & The Nanoporous Materials Genome Center.

Through these centers, many IPrime faculty will have the opportunity to participate in developing new materials related to capturing greenhouse gases and improving chemical processes as well as developing methods and software tools for increasing the efficiency of solar energy conversion.
