Penn State awarded $5.5 million in U.S. Department of Energy grants
University Park, Pa. -- Penn State will receive two Department of Energy (DOE) grants that place the University at the center of the nation's effort to become energy independent and develop clean energy sources, according to an announcement made today (Oct. 16) by U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter.
The first grant provides $2 million to establish the Mid Atlantic Clean Energy Applications Center to promote adoption of clean energy technology by industry and government in the six Mid Atlantic states. The second grant provides $3.5 million to establish the Mid Atlantic Solar Resource and Training Center, aimed at developing the solar energy industry in the Mid Atlantic region through technical assistance and workforce development. Both of these new centers will be located at the Philadelphia Navy Yard where Penn State is working with the Philadelphia Industrial Development Corporation (PIDC) and other partners to help develop a Clean Energy Campus as one element of the continued redevelopment of The Navy Yard as a dynamic, mixed-use business campus.
