The Center for Understanding Subsurface Signals and Permeability (CUSSP) Energy Earthshot Research Center (EERC) is working to develop the ability to predict and control fluid flow through fracture networks in enhanced geothermal systems.
PNNL and ORNL are working together on Digital Twins to modernize the U.S. hydropower plant fleet, which will reduce operating costs, improve reliability, reduce downtime, enhance grid resiliency, and reduce environmental impacts.
The E-COMP Initiative is creating new capabilities that enable the optimized design and operation of energy systems subject to multiple objectives and with high levels of power electronic (PEL) driven devices.
E4D is a 3D geophysical modeling and inversion program designed for subsurface imaging and monitoring using static and time-lapse electrical resistivity tomography (ERT), spectral induced polarization (SIP) and travel-time tomography data.
PNNL is a leader in the integration of aberration-corrected electron microscopy, in-situ techniques, and atom probe tomography to address challenges in nuclear materials, environmental remediation, energy storage, and national security.
PNNL partners with agencies and industry to identify and engage historically disadvantaged populations in regulatory decision-making, environmental assessment, and impact estimation of the consequences of complex polices and projects.
By improving the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF)-Solar model, this project aims to reduce forecast errors, improve sub-grid scale variability estimates, and more accurately estimate forecast uncertainty.
