Sandia and NREL Announce Two New H2FIRST Reports

Sandia National Laboratories and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) announce the publication of two new Hydrogen Fueling Infrastructure Research and Station Technology (H2FIRST) reports on hydrogen contaminant detection capabilities and reference station design analysis. H2USA is a public private partnership launched by the US Department of Energy in 2013 to overcome the critical barriers […]

New Report Describes Joint Opportunities for Natural Gas and Hydrogen Fuel-Cell Vehicle Markets

Sandia, supported by the DOE’s Vehicle Technologies and Fuel Cell Technologies offices (within the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, EERE), recently released “Transitioning the Transportation Sector: Exploring the Intersection of Hydrogen Fuel Cell and Natural Gas Vehicles.” The September 2014 workshop considered common opportunities and challenges in expanding hydrogen and natural gas use […]

Recent Sandia Secure, Scalable Microgrid Advanced Controls Research Accomplishments

A recently completed Grand Challenge Laboratory-Directed Research and Development project resulted in a secure, scalable microgrid (SSM) research facility that is actively engaged in developing technologies to solve many of the nation’s most complex challenges in satisfying its electric energy needs. Initial focus has been on enabling resilient and reliable performance when incorporating high penetration […]

Storing Hydrogen Underground Could Boost Transportation, Energy Security

Large-scale storage of low-pressure, gaseous hydrogen in salt caverns and other underground sites for transportation fuel and grid-scale energy applications offers several advantages over above-ground storage, says a recent Sandia study sponsored by the DOE Fuel Cell Technologies Office. Geologic storage of hydrogen gas could make it possible to produce and distribute large quantities of […]
