On November 17, 2009, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and Chinese National Energy Administration (NEA) agreed to develop a U.S.-China Clean Energy Research Center (CERC). The Center will facilitate joint research and development on clean energy by teams of scientists and engineers from the U.S. and China, as well as serve as a clearinghouse to help researchers in each country. Topics to be addressed through CERC are:
- Building energy efficiency
- Clean coal, including carbon capture and storage
- Clean vehicles
These are areas in which the United States and China have a shared interest in further developing technology to help our countries meet clean energy and climate change goals. Awards will be made to consortia with the knowledge and experience to undertake first-rate collaborative research programs. These Consortia will help bring together top talent from both countries and are expected to generate key technological advancement through genuine collaboration between United States and Chinese researchers.
