On the Radio: Iowa universities receive major energy research grant


Listen to this week’s radio segment here or read the transcript below.  This week’s piece features a National Science Foundation grant that was awarded to Iowa’s three regent universities.

Iowa’s renewable energy research is about to reach a new level thanks to a National Science Foundation grant.

This is the Iowa Environmental Focus.

The foundation awarded a $20 million, five-year grant to Iowa’s three public universities to conduct research in renewable energy and energy efficiency. On top of this, the Iowa Power Fund added $2 million to the initiative to pay for research equipment.

The grant improves the science and research capacities at Iowa State University, the University of Iowa and the University of Northern Iowa.

This project also encourages collaboration in science and math with community and private colleges and K-12 schools.

Congratulations to Iowa for earning funding that will make our state an energy leader.
