Sandian Presents on PV Failure Analysis at European PV Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSC)

Sandia researcher Joshua Stein (in Sandia’s Photovoltaic & Distributed Systems Integration Dept.) highlighted novel PV array monitoring strategies at a PV Performance Analysis and Module Reliability workshop held at the European PV Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The talk was coauthored by Mike Green from MG Lightning Electrical Engineering in Israel. Under […]

Sandian Recognized as a Top Professional in Energy

Sandia’s Kenneth Armijo (in the Photovoltaic & Distributed Systems Integration Dept.) was recognized in Hispanic Engineer and Information Technology magazine’s Fall 2014 issue as a “top professional in energy” in their article, “Where Does the Energy Sector Find Its Next-Gen Stars?” Dr. Armijo is a research scientist who holds a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from […]

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 […]

“Bionic” Liquids from Lignin: Joint BioEnergy Institute Results Pave the Way for Closed-Loop Biofuel Refineries

While ionic liquids (paired-ions salts that are liquid at room temperature) show great promise for liberating fermentable sugars from lignocellulose and improving advanced-biofuel economics, an even more promising candidate is now on the horizon—“bionic” liquids. The current “standard,” imidazolium-based ionic liquids, effectively and efficiently deconstruct biomass into fuel sugars, but are expensive, and thus limited […]

Sandian Selected for Outstanding Engineer Award

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Region 6: Southwest Area (encompassing New Mexico, Arizona, California, and Nevada) has selected Dr. Jose Luis Cruz-Campa (in Sandia’s MEMS* Technologies Dept.) as the recipient of their 2014 Outstanding Engineer Award for his “critical technical and leadership contributions to the development of microsystems-enabled PV (MEPV) technology and […]
