Dingell Announces Over $2.3 Million for Clean Energy Projects in MI-06
Ann Arbor, MI, February 23, 2023
ANN ARBOR, MI – Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-06) today announced $2,306,549 in funding to support three Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) projects in Michigan’s 6th Congressional District, including at the University of Michigan. The projects are focused on determining the viability of LENR as a carbon-free energy source. Funding comes from the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Advanced Research Projects Agency’s – Energy (ARPA-E) Exploratory Topics Funding Opportunity.
“The Climate Crisis is here, and it is real. If we are going to win this fight, we must be serious about cutting carbon emissions and investing in clean energy sources,” said Dingell. “Southeast Michigan is leading the way in cutting-edge research to put us on a path to a cleaner, healthier future and transform energy production and use. This significant funding from DOE will go a long way in supporting clean energy research projects right here in Michigan’s 6th District.”
· The University of Michigan will receive $902,213 for its project titled: Ionizing Radiation Detection for Exploratory Experiments in Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions
· The University of Michigan will receive $1,108,412 for its project titled: “Systematic Evaluation of Claims of Excessive Heat Generation from Deuteration of Palladium-Nickle Nanocomposites
· Amphionic in Dexter, MI will receive $295,924 for its project titled: “Nanostructured Pd-ANF Composites for Controlled LENR Exploitation
ARPA-E advances high-potential, high-impact energy technologies that are too high-risk for private-sector investment. ARPA-E awardees are unique because they are developing entirely new ways to generate, store, and use energy.
