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.
Researchers have come up with a new method for creating synthetic “colored” nanodiamonds, a step on the path to realization of quantum computing, which promises to solve problems far beyond the abilities of current supercomputers.
In one of the largest blockchain grid-cyber projects of its kind, PNNL is working with a network of industry partners to test and demonstrate blockchain’s ability to increase the cybersecurity resilience of power grid.
Mama and calf humpback whales—considered a vulnerable species that might be entangled in underwater equipment—star in a new animation video that depicts the marine mammals’ scale and movements relative to floating offshore wind farms.
