Materials & Systems Research, Inc. of Salt Lake City has received $2.8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy for fuel-cell technological research.

Based at 5395 W. 700 South, the company's research program is one of 13 that will split $33 million the Energy Department has made available to develop "cost-effective, intermediate-temperature fuel cell technologies to improve grid stability and enable integration of renewable energy into the system."

Materials & System Research is in a three-year, $2.8 million project to develop low-cost fuel cell technologies, led by Greg Tao.

The company, founded by Dinesh Shetty and Anil Virkar, professors in the University of Utah's department of materials science and engineering, has 10 employees. It also is working on a $1.7 million Energy Department project to develop an advanced sodium battery with enhanced safety and low-cost processing.
