PNNL is managing the Data Archive and Portal, which provides the wind research community with secure, timely, easy, and open access to all data brought in from research under DOE’s Atmosphere to Electrons program.
A technology developed by researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory could pave the way for increased fuel economy and lower greenhouse gas emissions as part of an octane on demand fuel-delivery.
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 will provide technical support to finalists in the Incubate stage and to Grand Prize Winners following the Pitch contest stage of the Fish Protection Prize competition, which is now accepting submissions.
Two forms of magnesium material were processed into tubing using PNNL’s Shear Assisted Processing and Extrusion™ technology. Both materials were found to have quite similar and improved properties—even though they began vastly different.
Pumped-storage hydropower offers the most cost-effective storage option for shifting large volumes of energy. A PNNL-led team wrote a report comparing cost and performance factors for 10 storage technologies.
Scientists have uncovered a root cause of the growth of needle-like structures—known as dendrites and whiskers—that plague lithium batteries, sometimes causing a short circuit, failure, or even a fire.
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.
PNNL researchers demonstrate how the excitation of oxygen atoms that contributes to better performance of a lithium-ion battery also triggers a process that leads to damage, explaining a phenomenon that has been a mystery to scientists.
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.
