(Salt Lake Tribune)– Created by USTAR and the Governor’s Office of Energy Development, the Energy Research Triangle program kicked off earlier this year by teaming with the Salt Lake Chamber to identify energy challenges facing local businesses.
Now the founding agencies are offering grants of $125,000 to teams of at least three researchers from three different nonprofit institutions in Utah that are collaborating on a project.

Letters of intent are due June 16. Grant applications and additional information are available at ustar.org.
