Arkansas Receives $20 Million to Study Renewable Energy


While the Senate and the White House remain inactive about climate change, individual states are trying to deal with it. Arkansas is one of them.

Last week the Arkansas Science and Technology Authority announced that it received a five-year, $20 million grant from the National Science Foundation to study renewable energy.

The State of Arkansas will match the grant and contribute an additional $4 million.

Researchers at seven Arkansas schools will study wind, solar and bio-based energy sources. The schools that will participate in the research are Arkansas State University, the University of Central Arkansas, Philander Smith College and University of Arkansas campuses in Little Rock, Fayetteville, Pine Bluff and Fort Smith.
