NREL research determines integration of plug-in electric vehicles...

(DOE/National Renewable Energy Laboratory) An influx of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) charging without coordination could prove challenging to the nation's electric grid, according to research conducted by the US Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).

Researchers reveal how microbes cope in phosphorus-deficient tropical soil

(DOE/Oak Ridge National Laboratory) A team led by the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory has uncovered how certain soil microbes cope in a phosphorus-poor environment to survive in a tropical ecosystem. Their novel approach could be applied in other ecosystems to study various nutrient limitations and inform agriculture and terrestrial biosphere modeling.

On the rebound

(DOE/Argonne National Laboratory) New research from the US Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory and Stanford University has found that palladium nanoparticles can repair atomic dislocations in their crystal structure, potentially leading to other advances in material science.

DOE whistleblower hopes his Rick Perry photos inspire others to expose ‘public corruption’

A Department of Energy photographer who was fired after releasing photos he took of a meeting between Energy Secretary Rick Perry and a prominent coal executive wants federal authorities to open a criminal investigation into what he calls “public corruption” between Perry and the industry official. At the meeting, photographer Simon Edelman said Murray Energy CEO […]

DOE staffer claims retaliation over photos of secret meeting

A former photographer at the Department of Energy says he lost his job in retaliation for making public photos of a meeting between Secretary Rick Perry and Robert "Bob" Murray … Click to Continue »

Surprising discovery could lead to better batteries

UPTON, NY - A collaboration led by scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory has observed an unexpected phenomenon in lithium-ion batteries--the most common type of battery used to power cell phones and electric cars. Show More Summary

Breaking bad metals with neutrons

By exploiting the properties of neutrons to probe electrons in a metal, a team of researchers led by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory has gained new insight into the behavior of correlated electron systems, which are materials that have useful properties such as magnetism or superconductivity.

DOE Invests $12 Million to Improve Solar Forecasting

Just before Christmas, the U.S. Department of Energy announced a new round of funding for projects that advance solar forecasting technologies. Eight projects were awarded a total of $12 million. Add the cost-share requirements for awardees...Show More Summary

NREL launches electrification futures study series

(DOE/National Renewable Energy Laboratory) The US Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is spearheading the Electrification Futures Study, a research collaboration to explore the impacts of widespread electrification in all US economic sectors -- commercial and residential buildings, transportation, and industry.

From the Pages of American Coal Magazine: “Future of Rare Earth Elements May Lie with Coal”

By NETL STAFF (2017) – Few people think of coal when they think of high-tech devices. However, that may soon change as researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) work to recover materials called … Continue reading ?

You can no longer fly drones over these DOE facilities

As of Dec. 29, drone flights over seven Department of Energy (DOE) facilities have been banned. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) banned the drone flights  at the request of U.S. national security and law enforcement agencies,...Show More Summary

'Hot' electrons heat up solar energy research

Solar and renewable energy is getting hot, thanks to nanoscientists—those who work with materials smaller than the width of a human hair—at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory who have discovered new, better and faster ways to convert energy from light into energetic electrons. Show More Summary

FAA restricts drone operations over seven nuclear facilities

U.S. national security and law enforcement agencies have expressed concerns about unauthorized drone use over DOE (Department of Energy) facilities. To address these concerns, FAA has announced that they are restricting drone flights above seven nuclear facilities in the U.S. Show More Summary

Clearing the air

Residents in some areas of the developing world are currently coping with dangerous levels of air pollution. Recent research, co-led by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, is leading to a new understanding of a key chemical able to break down some major air pollutants.

Study sheds new light on production of hydroxyl radicals, which help break down air pollutants

Residents in some areas of the developing world are currently coping with dangerous levels of air pollution. Recent research, co-led by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, is leading to a new understanding of a key chemical able to break down some major air pollutants.

The wet road to fast and stable batteries

An international team of scientists—including several researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory—has discovered an anode battery material with superfast charging and stable operation over many thousands of cycles.

Trump administration illegally denied funds to Department of Energy program, government says

The Department of Energy (DOE) instructed its officials to withhold $91 million from an energy program that the Trump administration had targeted for elimination, a clear and deliberate violation of a law that requires already-appropriated funds to be released, according to the Government Accountability Office (GAO).
