Gogotsi Awarded DOE EFRC with Lead Institution Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Partners

Trustee Chair Professor Yury Gogotsi is a member of the team awarded a $3,800,000 per year five-year Energy Frontier Research Center Award (EFRC) by the Department of Energy in partnership with lead institution Oak Ridge National Laboratory and partner institutions Argonne National Laboratory, Northwestern University, University of Tennessee, University of North Carolina, and University of Virginia.  Drexel University expects to receive more than $700,000 in funding from this grant. 

The project, "Fluid Interface Reactions, Structures and Transport (FIRST) Center" will explore ways to provide a basic scientific understanding of phenomena that occur at the interfaces of electrical energy storage, conversion of sunlight into fuels, geological sequestration of carbon dioxide, and other advanced energy systems. 

FIRST is one of 46 EFRCs awarded from an applicant pool of approximately 260 proposals.  The EFRC program exists to advance research in key areas of energy efficiency and sustainability.
