DOE awards funding for concentrating solar power

Engineering Physics Research Professor Mark Anderson is the UW-Madison primary investigator on a multi-institutional project to develop a 10 megawatt power cycle using supercritical carbon dioxide as the working fluid. With up to $8 million in funding, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory is leading the initiative; for its contributions, UW-Madison received $250,000. The project is among 21 to receive U.S. Department of Energy “SunShot Initiative” funding to advance cutting-edge concentrating solar power technologies.
