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.
PNNL’s autonomous fish body double, Sensor Fish, and the miniature version, Sensor Fish Mini, were used to evaluate a special screen. Researchers found the screen provides safe downstream passage for fish at irrigation structures.
A new PNNL tool makes it easy to see the differences across the country when it comes to the cost and affordability of electricity. Users can sort and compare nearly 100 metrics or variables and get individual county information.
Three PNNL fish researchers recently published a video journal article on how to properly implant miniature acoustic tags in juvenile Pacific lamprey and American eel and how the tags could benefit migration.
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.
