DOE to provide $4.8M in funding for fossil energy research

The U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Fossil Energy will provide up to $4.8 million to fund university research and development projects in the fossil energy sector, according to a Jan. 7 news release.

The funding aims to train upcoming scientists and engineers, encourage innovations in coal-based fossil energy resources, and develop technologies that would make domestic energy resources more affordable and improve electric grid reliability and resilience.

The department plans to choose up to 12 projects for the funding opportunity. Project focuses include determining arsenic and selenium concentrations in waste from coal combustion, developing cybersecure sensors for power generation, modeling coal plant challenges and reusing coal plant waste water.
