Binghamton University Awarded Energy Research Grant

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

An energy research program at Binghamton University is receiving a boost with funding from the federal government.

The Northeastern Center for Chemical Energy Storage facility on the Vestal campus has been awarded a $12.8 million grant.

Officials say the money is expected to support the research needed to develop energy technology breakthroughs.

According to Binghamton University, the award is one of the largest federal research grants the university has received.

Researchers say they hope to develop materials that are “cheaper, environmentally friendly and able to store more energy” than is possible using materials now available.
