DOE looks to create "innovation
The Department of Energy's 2010
budget request includes $280 million to set up eight Energy Innovation
Hubs aimed at supporting cross-disciplinary research that tackles
barriers to transforming the country's energy systems.
These initial eight hubs will focus on solar electricity,
fuels from sunlight, batteries and energy storage, carbon capture
and storage, grid technologies, energy-efficient buildings, extreme
materials, and modeling and simulation. The Department's offices of
Science, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Nuclear Energy, and
Basic Energy Sciences would host the hubs.
