Stony Brook receives $10 Million DOE Grant for a New Energy Frontier Research Center  
Stony Brook University was selected to receive a $10 million Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) award by the U.S. Department of Energy to establish the Center for Mesoscale Transport Properties. The Center will conduct basic science research to advance and enable the design of materials and components to achieve higher performing, longer life, and safer energy storage systems, including batteries.

The succesful proposal has been led by Esther Takeuchi, who holds a joint appointment in the Department of Chemistry and the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, and is Chief Scientist in Brookhaven National Laboratory's Global and Regional Solutions Directorate. In addition to faculty from the Departments of Chemistry, Physics and Materials Science, the collaborating institutions include Brookhaven National Laboratory, Columbia University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, University of California, Berkeley, and the University of North Carolina.

Our Department is represented by Profs. Marivi Fernandez-Serra and by Jim Misewich, who is currently Associate Lab Director for Basic Energy Sciences in Brookhaven National Laboratory. The Center commences activity on August 1, 2014 and will be housed at the University’s New York State Center of Excellence in the Advanced Energy Center in Stony Brook’s Research and Development Park.
