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.
Researchers from PNNL have helped colleagues at OHSU identify lipid molecules required for Zika infection in human cells. The specific lipids involved could also be a clue to why the virus primarily infects brain tissue.
Their consistency and predictability makes tidal energy attractive, not only as a source of electricity but, potentially, as a mechanism to provide reliability and resilience to regional or local power grids.
To help spur economic development and assist in the battle against COVID-19, PNNL is making available its entire portfolio of patented technologies on a research trial basis—at no cost—through the end of 2020.
On World Oceans Day, an international team of marine scientists reports that the potential impact of marine renewable energy to marine life is likely small or undetectable, though some uncertainty remains.
In a recent review article, an interdisciplinary team of researchers led by PNNL biogeochemist Nick Ward proposed a path to refining the representation of coastal interfaces in Earth systems models used to predict climate.
PNNL and the U.S. Forest Service used a combination of data, models, analytical techniques and software to evaluate forest restoration impacts on the environment, while also assessing the economics of resulting biomass.
