Grants for solar energy
Carnegie Mellon University will participate in much more electric grid modernization research revealed Tuesday by the Department of Energy.
The department awarded the Oakland college a $1 million grant to build up controls for something that would link collectively high-tech thermostats, energy inverters and storage space to be used with solar panel systems. The task, funded by certainly one of six related grants established by the division's Sunshot effort aimed at making solar energy cheaper, will also involve the National Rural Electrical Cooperative Association and Lawrenceville-based storage space battery pack maker Aquion Energy.
Carnegie Mellon is someone on a separate $4 million grant awarded the other day towards the department's National Energy Technology Lab in Southern Park, among 88 projects aimed at updating the electric grid to incorporate even more renewables including solar and wind.
