Solar Regional Test Center in Vermont Achieves Milestone Installation

The solar industry is now more than 60% of the way toward achieving the DOE SunShot Initiative affordability goal of $0.06 per kilowatt-hour for solar electricity. Meeting the last 40% without compromising quality will be challenging. To help US industry demonstrate and validate that new PV technologies can consistently perform over time, the DOE —in [...]

Federal Laboratory Consortium Regional Technology-Transfer Awards Salute Innovation, Commercialization at Sandia

The Federal Laboratory Consortium (FLC) is the nationwide network of federal laboratories with more than 300 members that provides the forum to develop strategies and opportunities for linking laboratory mission technologies and expertise with the marketplace. “We are proud of this work in technology development, technology transfer, and partnerships,” said Jackie Kerby Moore, Sandia’s manager [...]

Joint Sandia/University of Texas–Austin Research Featured on the Cover of Journal of Physical Chemistry C

“Chemi­cal and hydrodynamic mechanisms for long-term geological carbon storage” was the featured arti­cle in the July 17, 2014, issue of the Journal of Physical Chemistry C. The paper was written by Sandia researchers Susan Altman (in Sandia’s Geochemistry Dept.), Randall Cygan (in Sandia’s Geoscience Research & Applications Group), Craig Tenney (in Sandia’s Geoscience Research & [...]

Measuring Inflow and Wake Flow Turbulence Using a Mobile-Deployed Acoustic Doppler Velocimeter

Sandia has developed a mobile acoustic Doppler velocimeter (ADV) system that characterizes inflow and wake flow velocity and turbulence around a vertical axis turbine deployed at the Roza Canal, Yakima, Washington. The ADV was mounted on a hydrofoil (see figure, left-hand panel) and deployed using either an aluminum platform mounted on a bridge (center panel) [...]

Continuous Reliability Enhancement for Wind (CREW): Project Update

During 2013, the CREW team performed an internal reassessment of their effort to identify the benchmark’s value, any data gaps, and opportunities to be better aligned with the wind industry and found that wind-plant owners and operators have been developing in-house reliability-data collection tools with similar goals to the CREW project and that the original [...]
