Battery and Energy Storage Workshop on December 16, 2010
December 14, 2010
We anticipate a DOE Hub large scale funding opportunity in ‘Battery and Energy Storage’ during next several months. We have arranged an internal half-day meeting on December 16 (1:00 to 4:30 pm; MRGN 129) to share our research/technical capabilities plus information gathered from the DOE. Both the Energy Center and the Birck Nanotechnology Center are coordinating this half-day event. The meeting will consist of brief research presentations by participants followed by an open discussion. An expected outcome would be to discuss internally – a way to move forward.
The details for technical areas are not yet known. But a typical large Hub proposal may require addressing several additional topics such as manufacturing, outreach/learning, technology commercialization/entrepreneurship, policy, consumer, economics and social sciences. It may therefore provide opportunity for a broader participation across the campus and some faculty may be aware of this activity and interested to attend the event.
Please rsvp to Jill Wable (firstname.lastname@example.org) if interested in attending. We have a limited space for about 30 people to attend.

Spinach gave Popeye super strength, but it also holds the promise of a different power for a group of scientists: the ability to convert sunlight into a clean, efficient alternative fuel. Purdue University physicists are part of an international group using spinach to study the proteins involved in photosynthesis, the process by which plants convert the sun’s energy into carbohydrates used to power cellular processes.Read Full Story
