DOE Teams Up with Qatar for Sustainable Strategy

 
DOE-Qatar-Sustainable

The DOE and the Qatar Science and Technology Park (QSTP) are signing a Memorandum of Understanding to promote collaboration on sustainable clean energy technologies, building on ties between the U.S. and Qatar.

Under the partnership, the countries will exchange scientific and technical information, and utilize joint research, development, and deployment of clean energy initiatives.

"This partnership adds a new and exciting dimension to the already strong relationship between our two nations," says Deputy Secretary Poneman. "By bringing our scientists and engineers together to pursue joint research, we'll be able to develop the next generation of clean energy technologies more quickly. These innovations will help us to grow our economies and to build a more secure, prosperous, and sustainable clean energy future."

The cooperation will take place in five key areas:

  • Advanced Cooling Technologies, including next-generation cooling technologies, systems integration and building controls
  • Renewable Power Generation, for example, cost-effective integrated photovoltaic systems and coating technologies to reduce the effect of weather conditions
  • Energy Storage, including high energy density electric storage and thermal storage for combined heat and power systems
  • Carbon Capture and Sequestration, including improving the efficiency of existing and next-generation technologies and methods for the safe and efficient storage and transportation of high-pressure carbon dioxide
  • Water Treatment Systems, including efficient desalination techniques and effective water purification.
