Researchers at PNNL examined heat pump water heater (HPWH) operation in Pacific Northwest residences, gaining insights into HPWH electricity use patterns. Part of the study captured trends during a COVID-19 stay-at-home order.
PNNL’s energy-efficient dehumidifier may reduce energy consumption by up to 50% in residential A/C systems and increase the range of electric vehicles by up to 75%. The system has been licensed to Montana Technologies.
PNNL teamed with academia and industry to develop a novel zero-emission methane pyrolysis process that produces both hydrogen and high-value carbon solids suitable for an array of manufacturing applications.
