to transition into worldwide impact.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced today $5 million in new funding for Lake Erie Energy Development Corporation (LEEDCo), the non-profit corporation leading the effort for the first freshwater offshore wind project in the nation. Among LEEDCo’s winning development team for the project are Case Western Reserve University, McMahon DeGulis, Freshwater Wind, Siemens, and DNV KEMA.
Congratulations to Bob Savinell, Jesse Wainwright, and team for their winning project "Iron Flow Battery for Electric Grid-Scale Energy Storage". Case Western Reserve University will develop a water-based, alliron flow battery for grid-scale energy storage at low cost. If successful, this technology would surpass the DOE 2015 cost targets for stationary energy storage and facilitate the adoption and deployment of renewable energy technology.
Case Western Reserve University has won a $3.8 million grant to lead a new international effort reducing oil dependency: building wind turbine blades and solar panels from biomaterials.
The Great Lakes Energy Institute (GLEI) has a positive impact on the energy research in, and the economic and social fabric of, the community. We invite you to help continue this effort through support for the Great Lakes Energy Institute.
