About BETCy


Group sessionIn June 2014, the Biological Electron Transfer and Catalysis (BETCy) Energy Frontiers Research Center (EFRC) was established by the U.S. Department of Energy¹s Office of Basic Energy Sciences.

BETCy is one of 36 Energy Frontier Research Centers throughout the U.S., all focused on laying the scientific groundwork to meet the global need for abundant, clean, and economical energy. BETCy is housed at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana.

The BETCy group will research the fundamental molecular mechanisms of electron flow and electron management in biological systems. The Center’s aim is to gain an in-depth understanding of mechanisms that result in the most efficient conversion of electrochemical potential to chemical bond energy.

The Center’s research could lead to critical insights into fundamental principles that could profoundly impact the design and implementation of processes paramount for energy production and conservation.
