AUSTIN, TEXAS – At the University of Texas-Austin today, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz will announce $30 million in funding to 12 ARPA-E projects to develop transformational hybrid solar energy technologies that deliver cost-effective power when the sun is not shining. These projects will help advance solar energy beyond current photovoltaic (PV) and concentrated solar power (CSP) technologies to drive lower-cost, reliable solar energy deployment. Later in the day, Secretary Moniz will travel to San Antonio where he will meet with Mayor Julian Castro and discuss the Administration’s all-of-the-above energy strategy and the importance of science and innovation.
