Home > Press > Climate and Energy Project awards more than $11M in research grants

Abstract:
Franklin M. Orr Jr., director of the Stanford University Global Climate and Energy Project (GCEP), announced that five new research grants totaling more than $11 million have been awarded to Stanford faculty and collaborating researchers at other institutions in the United States and overseas. The new programs will focus on solar energy, advanced combustion, and carbon capture and separation. Investigators will use the funding to conduct fundamental research in energy technologies aimed at significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions on a global scale.

Three studies will investigate novel approaches to the design and fabrication of solar cells, with the goal of developing efficient and low-cost options for converting solar energy to electricity:

"Inorganic Nanocomposite Solar Cells by Atomic Layer Deposition," led by Stanford researchers Stacey Bent, Department of Chemical Engineering; James Harris, Department of Electrical Engineering; and Michael McGehee, Department of Materials Science and Engineering.

"Nanostructured Metal-Organic Composite Solar Cells," led by Stanford researchers Mark Brongersma, Department of Materials Science and Engineering; and Peter Peumans and Shanhui Fan, Department of Electrical Engineering.

"Nanostructured Silicon-Based Tandem Solar Cells," led by University of New South Wales researchers Martin Green, Centre of Excellence for Advanced Silicon Photovoltaics and Photonics, and Gavin Conibeer, Centre for Photovoltaic Engineering.
