CRADA opportunity: Development assistance for Roll-to-Roll Advanced Energy Materials Manufacturing
The U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Manufacturing Office and Fuel Cell Technologies Office, in conjunction with its Roll-to-Roll (R2R) Advanced Materials Manufacturing Consortium partners Argonne National Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the Eastman Kodak Company, have announced a cooperative research and development agreement (CRADA) opportunity.
Projects will focus on advanced materials and component development, synthesis and processing methods, and quality control and metrology in the specific areas of:
• Polymer electrolyte fuel cells and polymer electrolyte membrane electrolyzers
• Advanced batteries
• Flexible electronics and displays
• Energy efficient window films
• Flexible solar photovoltaic (PV) cells
• Water separation and purification membranes
These projects will be conducted within a 12-to-18-month period, and industrial partners are required to provide at least 50 percent cost share, which can be monetary funds or in-kind contribution (e.g., facilities, services and staff time). The national laboratories will not provide any monetary funds to industrial partners.
