Twenty years after the first radiation portal monitor was installed, PNNL continues supporting the Department of Homeland Security’s efforts to detect and prevent terrorist weapons from crossing our borders.
Recognizing how innovation and clean technologies at the very edge of the grid can work together to transition the electricity system, PNNL takes a multidisciplinary approach to advancing and integrating renewable energy solutions.
Researchers developed two solutions for air-conditioning—a novel, energy-efficient dehumidification system and a technology to detect refrigerant leaks. Both help increase energy-efficiency and reduce costs.
Research and development expertise aligns with national priorities in clean energy innovation and climate change mitigation. A workforce of 5,000 delivers scientific discovery, enables sustainable energy, and enhances national security.
