Sandians Won Best Poster Award at the ASME 12th Fuel Cell Science, Engineering, and Technology Conference

Brian Somerday and Joe Ronevich (both in Sandia’s Hydrogen and Combustion Technology Dept.) won the Best Poster Award for their presentation “Assessing Hydrogen Pipeline Reliability: Quantifying Susceptibility of Pipeline Steels to Hydrogen Gas-Accelerated Fatigue Crack Growth” at the ASME 12th Fuel Cell Science, Engineering and Technology Conference in Boston, Massachusetts. One pathway for delivering H2 […]

Fuel-Cell-Powered Mobile Lights Tested, Proven, Ready for Commercial Use

Mobile lighting systems powered by hydrogen (H2) fuel cells are cleaner, quieter, and now have a proven track record in applications such as nighttime construction, sports and entertainment events, and airport operations, making them ready for commercialization and broader use. The DOE Fuel Cell Technologies Office (FCTO), Boeing, Multiquip, Altergy Systems, and other private-sector partners […]

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 […]

More California Gas Stations Can Provide Hydrogen than Previously Thought, Sandia Study Says

A study by Sandia researchers concludes that a number of existing gas stations in California can safely store and dispense hydrogen, suggesting a broader network of hydrogen fueling stations may be within reach. The report examined 70 commercial gasoline stations in the state and sought to determine which, if any, could integrate hydrogen fuel, based […]

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. […]
