Digital Twins for Hydropower

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.
PROGRAM

E4D

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.

Earth Science in the News

From global issues such as melting permafrost and the creation of alternate biofuels to matters affecting microbiomes and micro-sized life, PNNL research is featured in news publications worldwide.
PROGRAM

Electron Microscopy

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.
PROGRAM

Environmental Justice

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.

HydroWIRES

HydroWIRES initiative helps water stakeholders reap the full benefit of hydropower’s superpower: versatility
INITIATIVE

Improving Solar Forecasting

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.
INITIATIVE

m/q Initiative

PNNL is heavily engaged in the development and use of mass spectrometry technology across its science, energy, and security missions, from fundamental research through mature operational capabilities.
PROGRAM

Remediation Performance Assessment

PNNL has developed performance assessment guidance for remediation of volatile contaminants in the vadose zone, inorganic contaminant remediation in the vadose zone, and pump-and-treat of groundwater contaminant plumes.

Residential Load Flexibility

PNNL is working on behalf of the U.S. Department of Energy to create a prototype system that enables homes to help provide services to the power grid while delivering economic benefits to residents.
PROGRAM

Salish Sea Model

The Salish Sea Model (SSM) is a predictive coastal ocean model for estuarine research, restoration planning, water-quality management, and climate change response assessment.
