Research and development expertise aligns with national priorities in clean energy innovation and climate change mitigation. A workforce of 5,000 delivers scientific discovery, enables sustainable energy, and enhances national security.
Seven teams win the U.S. Department of Energy's DESIGN Contest for wave-powered systems to monitor hurricanes—part of the Ocean Observing Prize. PNNL administers the prize with National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
A team of researchers from 10 national laboratories and eight universities is conducting hydraulic shearing tests to explore the potential for geothermal energy at the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF).
PNNL teamed with academia and industry to develop a novel zero-emission methane pyrolysis process that produces both hydrogen and high-value carbon solids suitable for an array of manufacturing applications.
New facility that will accelerate energy storage innovation and make the nation’s power grid more resilient, secure and flexible has been given the green light to proceed by the U.S. Department of Energy.
On the looming 10th anniversary of the Fukushima disaster at the Daiichi Power Station in Japan, PNNL looks back at the science and solidarity it has shared with Fukushima and its nuclear cleanup effort.
