Binghamton (AP) - Binghamton University is getting one of the largest research grants in the college's history. 
      The NorthEast Center for Chemical Energy Storage at the state university has been awarded a $12.8 million, four-year federal grant.
       The award was announced Wednesday and is one of 32 nationally from the federal government totaling $100 million to fund energy frontier research centers. The hope is that the influx of cash will help accelerate the scientific breakthroughs needed to build a new energy economy for this century.
     Grantees will work on research projects for energy production, storage and use. U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz says in a statement it will help "lay the foundation for our nation's energy future."
