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

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
INSTITUTE

IDREAM EFRC

The Interfacial Dynamics in Radioactive Environments and Materials (IDREAM) Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) conducts fundamental science to support innovations in retrieving and processing high-level radioactive waste.
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.
INSTITUTE

Institute for Integrated Catalysis

The Institute for Integrated Catalysis (IIC) at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory explores and develops the chemistry and technology of catalyzed processes that enable a carbon-neutral future.

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.
