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 […]

Resolving a Key to How Stars Transmit Energy

Working at temperatures matching the interior of the sun, researchers at Sandia National Laboratories’ Z machine have been able to determine experimentally, for the first time in history, iron’s role in inhibiting energy transmission from the center of the sun to near the edge of its radiative band. Because that role is much greater than […]

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 […]

The Quest for Efficiency in Thermoelectric Nanowires

Sandia researchers say better materials and manufacturing techniques for nanowires could allow car makers to harvest power from the heat wasted by exhaust systems or lead to more efficient devices to cool computer chips. The work, “Using galvanostatic electroforming of Bi1-xSbx nanowires to control composition, crystallinity, and orientation,” published in the Materials Research Society’s Journal […]
