For the third time in the past five years, Texas A&M University chemist Hongcai Joe Zhou finds himself among a handful of elite scientists across the country whose proposed ideas for novel energy solutions and storage systems have been rewarded with critical United States Department of Energy (DOE) funding intended to jump-start new prospects for global energy futures. Zhou’s is one of four projects selected to share in up to $4.6 million awarded by the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy to develop advanced hydrogen storage materials that have potential to enable longer driving ranges and help make fuel cell systems competitive for different platforms and sizes of vehicles.
