Software vulnerabilities are likely to be discussed on social media before they’re revealed on a government reporting site, a practice that could pose a national security threat, according to computer scientists at PNNL.
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.
Verizon recently announced a partnership that will make Pacific Northwest National Laboratory the U.S. Department of Energy’s first national laboratory with Verizon 5G ultra wideband wireless technology.
PNNL researchers and professional staff led discussions ranging from biothreats and climate change to science careers at the 2020 annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, held this year in Seattle.
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.
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.
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.
