More Efficient Fuel Cells under Development by Engineers

Solar power and other sources of renewable energy can help combat global warming but they have a draw­back: they don’t produce energy as predictably as generating plants powered by oil, coal, or natural gas. Solar panels only produce electricity when the sun is shining, and wind turbines are only productive when the wind is brisk. […]

High-Efficiency Solar Thermochemical Reactor for Hydrogen Production

On June 16th, the Department of Energy Fuel Cell Technology Office (FCTO) announced $20 million for 10 R&D projects to advance technologies that can economically produce and deliver hydrogen to power fuel cells from diverse, domestic, and renewable resources thereby enabling substantial reductions in energy use and carbon emissions. Advancing these technologies is critical to […]

Sandian Re-Elected as President of the Association for Computing Machinery Special Interest Group on Graphics and Interactive Techniques

Jeff Jortner (in Sandia’s Scalable Modeling & Analysis Systems Dept.) has been re-elected for another three-year term as the President of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Special Interest Group on Graphics and Interactive Techniques (SIGGRAPH). ACM is the world’s largest educational and scientific comput­ing society and delivers resources that advance computing as a science […]

Sandian’s Receive Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Program Achievement Award

On June 17th at the 2014 DOE EERE Fuel Cell Technology Office (FCTO) Annual Merit Review in Washington DC, Sandian’s Christopher San Marchi (manager of Sandia’s Hydrogen and Metallurgy Science Dept.) and Brian Somerday (also in the Hydrogen and Metallurgy Science Dept.) received a DOE Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Program achievement award for their research […]

Wind Generator Modeling

Sandia finalized and submitted the updated “WECC Wind Power Plant Dynamic Model­ing Guide” and the “WECC PV Power Plant Dynamic Modeling Guide” to the Technical Studies Subcommittee at the Western Elec­tricity Coordinating Council (WECC). These dynamic modeling guides present the second-generation generic models as speci­fied in the January 23, 2014 WECC report. The WECC generic […]
