Sandia Researchers Win CSP:ELEMENTS Funding Award

On May 21st, the Department of Energy SunShot Initiative announced $10M for six new R&D projects that will advance innovative concentrating solar power (CSP) technologies. The Concentrating Solar Power: Efficiently Leveraging Equilibrium Mechanisms for Engineering New Thermochemical Storage (CSP:ELEMENTS) funding program supports developing thermochemical energy storage (TCES) systems that can validate a cost of ≤ $15/kWhth [...]

The Brain: Key To a Better Computer

Neuro-inspired computing seeks to develop algorithms that would run on computers that function more like a brain than a conventional computer. “Today’s computers are wonderful at bookkeeping and solving scientific problems often described by partial differential equations, but they’re horrible at just using common sense, seeing new patterns, dealing with ambiguity, and making smart decisions,” [...]

Sandian Selected for Outstanding Young Engineer Award

The Albuquerque Section of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has selected Dr. Jose Luis Cruz-Campa as the recipient of the 2014 Outstanding Young Engineer Award for his outstanding con­tributions to the electrical engineering profession. A key aspect of Jose Luis’ research program is the use of microfabrication techniques, more commonly used in [...]

Widespread Hydrogen Fueling Infrastructure Is the Goal of H2FIRST Project

As hydrogen (H2) fuel cell electric vehicles (HFCEVs) continue to roll out in increasing numbers, the infrastructure for fueling them must expand as well. To this end, a new project launched by EERE’s Fuel Cell Technologies Office and led by Sandia and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will work in support of H2USA, the [...]

American Physical Society Names Four Sandians as Fellows

Four Sandia researchers (three from within the Energy & Climate PMU) have been named Fellows of the American Physical Society, an honor that indicates recognition by scientific peers of exceptional contributions to physics. No more than one half of one percent of APS membership can be elected in a given year. Those honored are: Charles [...]
