Paterson Announces $600 Million for NY Research Institutions

Abstract:
Governor David A. Paterson today announced that New York State universities, medical facilities, businesses and research institutions have been awarded 1,164 research grants worth more than $600 million through competitive stimulus funds available through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). The federal agencies providing these funds include the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy.

* $17.5 million for Cornell University's Center for Nanostructured Interfaces for Energy Generation, Conversion and Storage. The goal of the center is to discover and design materials that will dramatically enhance the performance of fuel cells, batteries, photovoltaics and photo-electrochemical cells;
* A $16 million grant for the Energy Frontier Research Center at Columbia University (matched by 10 percent from the State and by another $250,000 from NYSERDA) to use nanotechnology and supercomputing in pursuit of advances in solar energy, biofuels, transportation, energy efficiency, electricity storage and transmission, carbon capture and sequestration and nuclear energy;
* Two grants totaling $6.1 million to Plug Power Inc. of Latham and one for $2.4 million to MTI MicroFuel Cells of Albany to advance their work on fuel cells.
