Q&A with SLAC Lab Director John SarraoSLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
A materials scientist who specializes in superconductors, Sarrao brings a deep background in national lab leadership and the evolution of SLAC science.
The Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory has been selected to lead an Energy Earthshot Research Center, or EERC, focused on developing chemical processes that use sustainable methods instead of burning fossil fuels to radically reduce industrial greenhouse gas emissions to stem climate change and limit the crisis of a rapidly warming planet.
Argonne’s manufacturing center joins with Illinois manufacturers to tour the state and foster innovation and collaboration. Argonne's materials expertise is available to help propel U.S. manufacturing forward.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced funding for a new research center at Brookhaven National Laboratory focused on exploring the chemical and mechanical properties of cement composites and other materials used in enhanced geothermal systems (EGS).
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced up to $500 million in funding for basic research in support of DOE’s clean energy, economic, and national security goals.
Berkeley Lab will lead centers for the Hydrogen and Carbon Negative Energy Earthshots, initiatives to accelerate technological breakthroughs for clean energy and solutions to the climate crisis. The Center for Ionomer-based Water Electrolysis (CIWE) will investigate methods to improve the efficiency and durability of clean-hydrogen production, while RESTOR-C will develop better ways for plants and microbes to pull carbon from the atmosphere and lock it away in the soil.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced $264 million in funding for 29 projects to develop solutions for the scientific challenges underlying DOE’s Energy Earthshots™ Initiative to advance clean energy technologies within the decade. The funding will support 11 new Energy Earthshot Research Centers led by DOE National Laboratories and 18 university research teams addressing one or more of the Energy Earthshots™ that are focused on six different areas, including industrial decarbonization, carbon storage, and offshore wind. The Department launched the Energy Earthshots Initiative to spur decarbonization efforts that will help the United States meet President Biden’s ambitious climate and clean energy goals, including a 50% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030 and a net-zero carbon economy by 2050.
Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced $5 million in funding for six projects that will increase the use and utility of DOE research to improve climate resilience, particularly in vulnerable communities, in conjunction with the White House Summit on Building Climate Resilient Communities.
The Department of Energy (DOE) announced today that it is accepting nominations from the DOE national laboratories for the department’s Distinguished Scientist Fellows Program.
Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced $30 million in funding for three projects to increase scientific productivity and discoveries across DOE light source, neutron source, and high-performance computing and networking facilities.
