Congress should double the DOE’s Energy Frontier Research Centers budget to $300 million by FY2014.

The budget for EFRCs should be doubled from current levels of about $155 million in annual project support awarded in FY2009 to at least $300 million per year by FY2013. This funding would be sufficient to support 60-150 EFRC projects ongoing at any given time and capable of catalyzing cutting-edge research at the frontier of energy sciences.
