UC San Diego’s Center for Energy Research Awarded over $5M for Energy Projects

Two Department of Energy grants focus on developing cleaner, more efficient energy sources and systems.

The University of California San Diego’s Center for Energy Research (CER) has been awarded two grants from the Department of Energy (DOE) for research focused on developing environment-friendly and cost-competitive energy sources and systems.

The multi-year awards bring together several divisions on campus in a collaborative effort to create more efficient, cleaner energy systems. The first award, for $2.1 million, comes from the DOE’s Advanced Research Projects Agency–Energy (ARPA-E) division through its Range Extenders for Electric Aviation with Low Carbon and High Efficiency (REEACH) program. The program focuses on creating innovative, cost-effective and high-performance energy storage and power generation solutions for future electric aircraft propulsion (needed during lift-off, cruising and landing).
