Stationary Power

Our work in stationary power includes the deployment of clean electricity, which requires integration with a modernized grid infrastructure, and enhancements in energy efficiency as a direct influence on energy productivity and economic competitiveness.

Energy Conversion Efficiency

High-efficiency conversion of low and  zero-carbon energy sources to electricity

Safety, Security, & Resilience of the Energy Infrastructure

Safety, security, and resilience of energy infrastructure and assets

Nuclear Energy

A dynamic, multifaceted approach to systems-based research and development of nuclear energy and fuel cycle technologies

Energy Conversion Efficiency

Increasing the amount of electricity produced from a given thermal energy input.
This is a major objective for multiple RE sources (e.g., geothermal, photovoltaics [PV], concentrating solar power [CSP], wind). Major advances in energy conversion efficiency also have the potential for significant impact in traditional thermal energy source (e.g., nuclear, natural gas, coal) conversion to electricity.

Safety, Security, & Resilience of the Energy Infrastructure

Enabling a Resilient and Secure Electric Grid

Sandia envisions a world of interdependent and variable distributed systems that are optimized at multiple scales – including transmission – to maximize local resources in providing secure, resilient, and clean energy to all users at all times.

Nuclear Energy

Enabling Energy Security through the Nuclear Enterprise

Sandia supports the safe, secure, reliable, and sustainable use of nuclear power worldwide through strengths in repository science, nonproliferation, safety and security, transportation, modeling, and system demonstrations
