Portable Hydrogen Fuel-Cell Unit to Provide Green, Sustainable Power to Honolulu Port

Clean hy­drogen power that’s expected to lower emissions and reduce energy consumption will be coming to the Port of Honolulu in 2015 after the completion of a new fuel-cell technology demonstration, one that could lead to a commercial technology for ports worldwide. Ports have been a major water- and air-pollution source in the U.S.—but remained […]

Sandia–UC Davis Collaboration Funded by DOE Office of Fusion Energy

Sandian Dean Buchenauer (in Sandia’s Hydrogen and Metallurgy Science Dept.) and Professor David Q. Hwang (UC Davis, School of Engineering) will investigate the formation and transport of compact toroids, which are donut-shaped bundles of energetic plasma. The newly funded research project will develop the means to quickly inject compact toroids whenever a disruptive instability occurs […]

Sandia R&D Funded under New DOE SunShot Program

On October 22, the Department of Energy announced $60M in new awards to drive affordable, efficient so­lar power. The SunShot Physics of Reliability: Evaluating Design Insights for Component Technologies in Solar (PREDICTS) program is taking a physics- and chemistry-based approach to identifying solar product failure modes. Module-level (~200 W) power electronics (MLPE), such as microinverters, microconverters, […]

Sandia Market Transformation Work Presented at Two Conferences

Joe Pratt (in Sandia’s Energy Systems Engineering & Analysis Dept.) presented work for DOE’s Market Transformation group at two international conferences.  At the Society of Automotive Engineers Aerospace Alternative Fuels and Associated Environmental Impacts Symposium in Brussels, Belgium on June 13, 2013, Joe gave a DOE-prepared talk on the work the Market Transformation group is […]

Sandia Brings Home a Record Five Regional Tech-Transfer Awards

Sandia won five regional awards from the Federal Laboratory Consortium (FLC) for its work to develop and commercialize innovative technologies. It was the most FLC regional awards Sandia has won at one time. The FLC’s Far West/Mid-Continent regions recognized the Labs’ SpinDX, Sandia Cooler, and Self-Assembled Multifunctional Optical Coatings (SAMOC) with “Outstanding and Notable Technology […]
