Research Grant For Binghamton University

The U.S.Department of Energy awarded $100 million in grants to research institutions across the U.S, and $12.8 million of that money is headed to Binghamton University.
   
BU was awarded a four-year grant in the hopes that the school's research will accelerate breakthroughs in the field of innovative energy storage. 

The grant will make BU an Energy Frontier Research Center and is one of the largest federal research grants BU has ever received.

"It's a big win for us and our reputation. The financial support is going to be great and support dozens of graduate students, faculty, research time, equipment, materials and expenses," Said Harvey Stenger, Binghamton University President.

The grant will allow Stanley Whittingham, a chemistry professor at the university, to continue researching the benefits of lithium-ion batteries.

Scientists say lithium ions  can improve the battery life of hybrid electric cars.
