Sandia Wins DOE Geothermal Technologies Office Funding Award

The DOE’s Geothermal Technologies Office (GTO) selected twelve collaborative enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) R&D projects that will use novel techniques (such as isotope studies, innovative rock-mechanics experiments, and tracer studies integrated with geophysical methods) to increase the precision and accuracy of measuring critical underground reservoir properties over time. EGS are engineered reservoirs, created beneath the […]

Evaluating Powerful Batteries for Modular Electric Grid Energy Storage

Sandia has begun lab-based characterization of TransPower’s GridSaver, the largest grid energy storage (ES) system analyzed at Sandia’s Energy Storage Test Pad. Project lead David Rosewater (in Sandia’s Energy Storage Technology and Systems Dept.) said that Sandia will evaluate the 1 MW lithium-ion grid ES system for capacity, power, safety, and reliability and also investigate the […]
