USA: Senator to DOE: Approve $120M Funding for SBU-BNL Partnership

Charles Schumer calls on U.S. Department of Energy to fund a project that would help ramp up the market for electric vehicles.

Stony Brook University in partnership with Brookhaven National Lab could become the site of a research center for the development of high-tech batteries if the U.S. Department of Energy approves a $120 million funding package for such a project.

U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer on Monday called on the DOE to approve that package, which he said would ramp up the market for electric vehicles in America by expanding the power and efficiency of their batteries.

“Long Island has the expertise, research facilities, and the tools to revolutionize the electric vehicle and commercial battery market, and now we need to provide the resources to turn this expertise into a reality,” Schumer said in a statement. β€œThe funding package we are working on securing will not only create hundreds of high-paying jobs on Long Island, but it could also create new manufacturing jobs in upstate New York if we make a major breakthrough.”
