DoE funds 12 novel solar projects

The Center for Revolutionary Solar Photoconversion (CRSP) is launching 12 novel solar research projects totaling more than $1.1 million in its inaugural round of R&D funding. CRSP-led by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory-is the newest research center of the Colorado Renewable Energy Collaboratory. The center concentrates on ways to directly convert the sun's energy to clean, low-cost electricity and fuels.

The 12 CRSP projects "represent the leading edge of research into both new ways to generate electricity and liquid and gaseous fuels directly from the sun and improving our approaches toward these goals," NREL Senior Research Fellow and CRSP Scientific Director Arthur Nozik said.
