DOE To Award $104.7M to Establish Research and Testing Facilities for Carbon Fiber Manufacturing, Advanced Batteries, and Net-Zero Energy Building Technology

Green Car Congress

Specifically, the funding will go toward reducing the production cost of carbon fiber manufacturing, to help in reducing the weight of vehicles; improved efficiency and lower costs for car batteries; and net-zero energy building technologies. The Center will investigate novel manufacturing processes and alternative feedstocks in order to lower the cost of carbon fiber from the current $10-$20 per pound to under $5 per pound. The US Department of Energy (DOE) is awarding $104.7

US DOE Awarding Up To $62M for Concentrating Solar Power Research and Development

Green Car Congress

The US Department of Energy has selected 13 projects for investment of up to $62 million over five years to research, develop, and demonstrate Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) systems capable of providing low-cost electrical power. CSP plants can include low-cost energy storage, allowing them to provide electricity even when the sun is not shining. Eventually, this technology could deliver lower-cost solar energy at a utility scale. Albuquerque, NM – up to $4.3

During past eight years the number of plug-in electric vehicle models has increased from one to more than 20, battery costs have decreased 70%, and the number of electric vehicle charging stations has increased from less than 500 in 2008 to more than 16,000 today—a 40-fold increase. In doing so, governments at all levels can lower their procurement costs, expand technology availability, and increase automotive manufacturers’ demand certainty.

DOE Awards Up to $6.9M to Nine Projects for Shale Gas and Coalbed Methane Production

Green Car Congress

This project will develop a low-cost, mobile process to treat the total dissolved solids in the flowback water from hydraulic fracturing operations. Albuquerque, N.M. This project will demonstrate that the AltelaRain technology can be successfully deployed in a cost-effective manner to treat the produced and flowback water from Marcellus Shale, and that it can operate within state and federal regulatory requirements.
