Energy for Sustainability (Core Program) NSF 13-76644

DUE:  Window  15 January 2013 to 19  February  2013

AWARD:  NSF Core Program, normally three years with about $100k/year

SCOPE:  This program supports fundamental research and education that will enable innovative processes for the sustainable production of electricity and transportation fuels.  Processes for sustainable energy production must be environmentally benign, reduce greenhouse gas production, and utilize renewable resources.  Current interest areas in sustainable energy technologies are:

–           Biomass Conversion, Biofuels & Bioenergy.

–            Photovoltaic Solar Energy.

–            Wind Energy

–            Advanced Batteries for Transportation.   Note: Fuel-cell projects previously submitted to this program should be directed to other CBET programs, depending on emphasis: electrocatalysis (Catalysis and Biocatalysis); membranes (Separations and Bioseparations); systems (Process and Reaction Engineering).
