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.
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.
A team of researchers is working to expand our uranium chemistry understanding using a surprising tool: lasers. This capability gives never-before-seen insight into uranium gas-phase oxidation during nuclear explosions.
The Energy Storage System Safety and Reliability Forum at PNNL brought together more than 120 energy storage experts from the U.S. Department of Energy, the national laboratories, utilities, industry and academia.
PNNL and the 13 other national laboratories of the Grid Modernization Laboratory Consortium (GMLC) will be sharing their R&D work and technologies for grid modernization at DistribuTECH International in San Antonio Jan. 28-30.
The world’s largest scientific society honored Sue B. Clark, a PNNL and WSU chemist, for contributions toward resolving our legacy of radioactive waste, advancing nuclear safeguards, and developing landmark nuclear research capabilities.
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.
Seventeen teams from regional colleges and universities gathered at PNNL Nov. 16 to put their cyber skills to the test by protecting critical energy infrastructure against simulated cyberattacks as part of DOE's CyberForce Competition.
With support from DOE’s Office of Electricity and National Grid, PNNL led a groundbreaking study to accurately assess the full value of grid energy storage investments across a wide variety of use cases.
A new Co-Optima report describes an assessment of 400 biofuel-derived samples and identifies the top ten candidates for blending with petroleum fuel to improve boosted spark ignition engine efficiency.
Energy storage is slowly shifting utility planning practices from the current paradigm, which ensures grid reliability by building reserve generation resources, to ensuring grid reliability by optimizing grid services.
