CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The U.S. Department of Energy is awarding $40 million to the Lake Erie Energy Development Corp. to build a six-turbine pilot wind farm in Lake Erie by the end of 2018.

Case Western, Carnegie Mellon, West Virginia University, and the University of Pittsburgh have begun a collaboration to attract government and corporate funding for energy research. By combining their resources, these universities believe they will be more competitive with large research centers for more high- profile projects, bringing more research dollars into the region.

Researchers from the Great Lakes Energy Institute and Case Western Reserve University were on NPR’s The Sound of Ideas last week to talk about solar power.

Listen to their talk here.

Four leading research universities are joining forces to accelerate innovations to address challenges and opportunities facing the energy sector.

Case Western Reserve University will lead a two-year energy storage research project, thanks to a $1.65 million grant from Ohio’s Federal Research Network (FRN).

On January 20th, the Great Lakes Energy Institute hosted a Clean Energy Student Competition to provide experience in business pitches.
