February 15 (Renewables Now) - The US Department of Energy (DOE) has selected 68 research and development (R&D) projects for advanced clean energy technologies to share USD 175 million (EUR 154m) in funding.
The funds will be distributed to the selectees under the OPEN 2021 programme led by DOE’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E).
The selected projects span 22 states and are coordinated at universities, national laboratories and private companies. They include R&D work in various fields such as electric vehicles, offshore wind, storage and nuclear recycling.
Among the selectees is the Makai Ocean Engineering team in Hawaii, which will get roughly USD 850,000 to develop novel mooring and anchoring methods to reduce the costs of offshore renewable energy, including grid-scale floating wind turbines and hydrokinetic systems.
