DOE provides more renewables funding


The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced on September 16 that it will provide nearly $100 million for renewable energy research, including $16.5 million for biomass energy, $30 million for state energy efficiency projects, and $9.6 million for “transformational” energy research, such as airborne wind turbines and solar photovoltaic (PV) systems with non-mechanical sun-tracking capability. The latest announcement comes about one week after DOE announced the distribution of $37 million for marine and hydro energy projects. The $16.5 million in funding for biomass energy research includes $12 million for projects involving the development of pyrolysis technology for producing bio-oil. The remaining $4.5 million will support three projects focused on the development of sustainable methods of biomass crop production.
