Dr. O’Connor receives NSF grant

Dr. Brendan OConnor recently received a grant from the National Science Foundation.  His awarded grant “INFEWS/T3: Solar-Powered Integrated Greenhouse (SPRING) Systems Using Wavelength Selective Photovoltaics for Complete Solar Utilization” aims to develop semi-transparent organic solar modules integrated with greenhouses along with engineered plant photo-action spectra that synergistically provide food and energy sources while conserving water for a new food-energy-water paradigm.  This grant is set to last for 4 years.
