That vision dovetails with one that Berkeley lab's Chu has laid out in foundation and corporate boardrooms for a mini-Manhattan project in biofuels and advanced, nanotech solar cells, called the Helios Project.
University officials pitched the idea to Schwarzenegger last year and found him enthusiastic. The governor's proposed budget pledges $30 million in bonds for the new Helios lab, plus $40 million more if BP chose Berkeley for its bioenergy institute. The extra $70 million landed in the 11th hour of BP's competition, and state officials said it showed California was serious about its bids.
"It is because of the governor's leadership that UC-Berkeley has been awarded this significant research partnership," said Schwarzenegger press secretary Aaron McLear.
