New Collaboration for Energy Research
I am pleased to share that Applied Materials has joined the Energy Research Initiative (ERI), a collaboration created by the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) to promote research at leading universities for reliable, affordable, energy-efficient systems.
The ERI is a program designed to create an industry-university partnership to support the development of improved photovoltaic devices, and enable an efficient and reliable smart grid electricity infrastructure with renewable energy resources. A partnership of this sort is not only beneficial to our industry, but also to the students and educational institutions involved in the research process.
The ERI enables industry experts and engineers to work with students and technological resources available at educational research institutions such as Purdue University and Carnegie Mellon University, to ultimately maximize the development of PV and Smart Grid technologies.
