Water and energy researchers are invited to join a new task force as a way to collaborate broadly on the intersection of the two topics. The task force is part of IEEE's Power and Energy Society and was launched by PNNL and UU researchers.
PNNL researchers developed two web-based tools to assess and mitigate cyberthreats to utilities—inside and outside their firewalls. Both are low cost and can be used by control room operators who are not cybersecurity experts.
PNNL researchers established an Internet of Things Common Operating Environment (IoTCOE) laboratory to explore the risks associated with IoT connectivity to the internet, the energy grid and other critical infrastructures.
The Facility Cybersecurity toolkit, developed by PNNL, is designed for federal facilities to help implement the presidential executive order on cybersecurity, but it is also available for commercial facilities without charge.
The PNNL-developed VOLTTRON™ software platform’s advancement has benefited from a community-driven approach. The technology has been used in buildings nationwide, including most recently on a university campus.
Making sure there’s enough electricity at the lowest price is a critical endeavor undertaken daily by electricity market operators. Now, there’s an approach that provides more timely and accurate information to make day-ahead decisions.
Four researchers from PNNL were recently honored for contributing to two U.S. Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy initiatives that support the blue economy and building-grid integration.
A new PNNL report says the western U.S. power system can handle large-scale vehicle electrification up to 24 million vehicles through 2028, but more than that and cities could start feeling the squeeze.
PNNL study evaluated "tunable" lighting and its effects on sleep at study in a California nursing home. Tunable refers to the ability to adjust LED light output and the warmth or coolness of the light color.
Sonja Glavaski and Kevin Schneider, both electrical engineers at PNNL, have been named as IEEE fellows. IEEE is the world's largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity.
PNNL will lead three new grid modernization projects funded by the Department of Energy. The projects focus on scalability and usability, networked microgrids, and machine learning for a more resilient, flexible and secure power grid.
