Bridging Research Interactions through Collaborative Development Grants in Energy (BRIDGE) is a new program that intends to support the SunShot Initiative by increasing the depth and breadth of expertise being applied to PV and CSP technology challenges. The BRIDGE program will employ a two-part linking approach to effectively develop U.S. capability in PV and CSP device and system design. First, BRIDGE will support the development of new Collaborative Research Teams (CRTs) of researchers who share coherent scientific goals and diverse but complementary theoretical, computational and/or experimental approaches. In addition, BRIDGE will encourage CRTs to explore opportunities to leverage existing DOE assets and expertise housed within the DOE Basic Energy Sciences (BES) Scientific User Facilities, the DOE Biological and Environmental Sciences (BER) Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) and Advanced Scientific Computing Research facilities (ASCR).
