Co-op research group signs pact with Department of Energy

The federal agency is a regular supporter of CRN-sponsored research, most notably in distributed generation. CRN and DOE have collaborated on a number of projects in recent years including an evaluation of microturbines, demonstration of a transportable fuel cell, and tests of wind turbines. On the immediate horizon is a CRN-DOE contract to study the performance of residential fuel cells from major manufacturers, which believe that rural America will be the initial market entry for this technology.
