$20M grant will fund more solar research

News Sentinel writer Tom Humphrey reports The National Science Foundation has awarded Tennessee a $20 million grant to fund energy-related research at the University of Tennessee, nine other state universities and Oak Ridge National Laboratory over the next five years.

The money will pay for hiring new faculty at institutions not yet conducting extensive research and will provide scholarships, stipends and internships for students.

The research focuses on three main areas, according to a statement: advanced solar conversion and innovation, components and devices for energy storage and conversion, and nanostructures for enhancing energy efficiency.
