UC Awarded $1.1M to Build Solar-Powered Water Purification Systems

UC Solar received a $1.1 million grant from DOE’s Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office to develop solar-thermal desalination technologies that reduce the cost of creating fresh water from otherwise unusable waters such as seawater, brackish water, and polluted water. UC Solar is a multi-campus research collaborative launched in 2010 that comprises researchers from nine UC campuses and Berkeley Lab. More>
