Renewable Energy

Research that increases the resilience of renewable energy

Sandia National Laboratories has advanced research in renewable energy since the 1970s. The more than 100 researchers in our program:

  • Reduce the cost,
  • Improve the resilience and reliability, and
  • Decrease the regulatory burden of renewable energy.

Our research builds on many of Sandia’s core strengths including high-fidelity modeling; materials development, analysis, and testing; advanced controls systems; high-temperature systems; cyber security; verification and validation/uncertainty quantification; and performance testing and reliability. Using these strengths, our research has made major contributions to the nation’s energy security and resilience, economic viability, and environmental sustainability.
