The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) has selected Thar Energy, LLC to develop new recuperator technologies leading to more cost-effective and efficient supercritical carbon dioxide (SCO2)-based power cycles.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Indian Energy, in partnership with the Western Area Power Administration (Western), will present the next Tribal Renewable Energy Series webinar, Best Practices in Procurement, on Wednesday, Aug. 5, 2015, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Mountain time.
As part of the Obama Administration’s commitment to accelerating American manufacturing and Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz’s support of STEM education to create the next generation of engineers and manufacturers, the Energy Department has announced up to $10 million available to establish one or more graduate-level training programs at colleges and universities for engineers in power electronics.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Indian Energy Policy and Programs intends to issue a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) later this year that will help promote tribal energy sufficiency by providing funding for Tribes to make their buildings more energy efficient and deploy community-scale clean energy systems.
Eligible applicants for this opportunity include Indian Tribes, Alaska Native regional and village corporations, tribal energy resource development organizations, and tribal consortia on whose Indian land the project will be located.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has released its latest report in a series analyzing markets where LEDs compete with traditional lighting sources. The new report, Adoption of Light-Emitting Diodes in Common Lighting Applications, reveals a wealth of insights into promising pathways for SSL technology development, providing estimates of the energy saved in 2014 due to current levels of LED penetration in 10 lighting applications, as well as the potential energy savings if each of these applications had switched completely to the best available LED products.
Two of the six winners of the 20th Annual Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards—LanzaTech and Algenol—have active projects with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO). The awards are sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention and the National Academy of Sciences, and recognize outstanding chemical technologies that promote environmental and economic benefits using green chemistry. The 2015 awards ceremony was held on July 13, 2015, and hosted by the National Academy of Sciences. A panel of American Chemical Society Green Chemistry Institute® experts selected the winners for their incorporation of green chemistry principals into chemical design, manufacturing, and use.
The Energy Department today announced over 65 organizations are participating in the Better Buildings Alliance's Interior Lighting Campaign (ILC) and committing to drive greater energy efficiency through new interior lighting technologies.
