DOE Funds National Laboratories’ Green Energy Research

$540 million is allocated for 54 universities and 11 National Laboratories.

The Department of Energy announced last week that they will be awarding $540 million to 54 universities and 11 National Laboratories for their clean energy technology research. Secretary Jennifer Granholm announced the awardees at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. President Biden’s administration has set a goal of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050, and creating the technology for greenhouse gas reduction and low-carbon manufacturing is an important part of meeting that goal.

Secretary Granholm stated that the president’s “ambitious climate and clean energy goals will require a game-changing commitment to clean energy — and that begins with researchers across the country.” She added, “The research projects announced today will strengthen the scientific foundations needed for the United States to maintain world leadership in clean energy innovation, from renewable power to carbon management.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his energy advisors as they craft policies around green and renewable energy.
  • For Secretary Granholm to seek God’s guidance as she heads the Energy Department.
  • For U.S. energy officials as they support research and technology regarding carbon and greenhouse gas reduction.
