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.
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.
