The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has awarded two NH firms nearly $4 million in federal funds for energy efficiency projects. According to a statement from U.S. Senators Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and Maggie Hassan (D-NH), and U.S. Representatives Annie Kuster (NH-02) and Chris Pappas (NH-01), Brayton Energy in Hampton will receive $1 million and Creare in Hanover will receive $2,999,901.
“Investing in energy efficiency and renewable programs supports the sustainability of both our environment and economy, which is why I’m so glad to see these federal dollars come back to New Hampshire to boost the important work at Brayton Energy and Creare,” said Shaheen.
Hassan added, “This federal funding will support Brayton Energy and Creare LLC as they continue working to develop energy solutions that reduce energy consumption and costs for consumers and businesses.
The Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy awarded this grant through its OPEN+ program. Awardees of this federal funding, including Brayton Energy and Creare, will explore new approaches and technologies for the design and manufacturing of advanced heat exchangers, which can increase the efficiency of energy conversion.
Investments that help increase the efficiency of energy conversion could reduce fuel consumption, costs and emissions.
