Statement from SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher on National Energy Grants Awarded to Binghamton and Stony Brook University Researchers

June 20, 2014

“Scientific research and discovery taking place on SUNY campuses is a critical vessel for increased energy efficiency and environmental sustainability not only in New York State but across the country.

“With the recent United States Department of Energy announcement that 32 projects nationally – two championed by SUNY distinguished professors – SUNY continues its national leadership role in discovering and creating innovative energy storage solutions for the future.

“Congratulations to Binghamton University’s M. Stanley Whittingham and Stony Brook University’s Esther Takeuchi on their outstanding achievements.”
