U.S. soldiers are participating in an Energy Department supported program that provides hands-on education for #engineering #jobs. The Industrial Assessment Center (IAC) program, is open to all engineering students at participating colleges and universities, but many veterans find that they can use the program to further develop many skills they obtained through their service.
The first-ever Lab Impact Summit on May 4 at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory convened about 300 clean energy thought leaders from both small and multinational companies, as well as experts from incubators, state utilities, and local and federal government, to celebrate successful partnerships between our national laboratories and industry—and spawn new and innovative collaborations that are driving America’s clean energy economy forward.
Over the last six years, Brady Hot Springs in Nevada site has become a hotbed of activity for innovative geothermal research and development. With the nearly constant and frequently overlapping research efforts ongoing at the site, a unique community of scientists, engineers, geothermal operators, and utilities has formed.
PIKETON, Ohio – The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Annual Site Environmental Report (ASER) is an approximate 300-page, technically complex document that characterizes various aspects of the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant in Piketon, Ohio.
To a group of Waverly High School students who were tasked with summarizing it (complete with graphics), it was something else.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Teams at two EM sites have been recognized with 2016 Energy Sustainability Awards for spearheading projects that have saved taxpayer dollars while promoting efficiency and smart use of DOE resources.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Technology Commercialization Fund (TCF) is underway in its inaugural year of operation. This week, the DOE kicked off a new round of private sector outreach with a webinar on the TCF.
The Department of Energy’s Wind Program is hosting a booth this week at the AWEA WINDPOWER Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. Among the exciting research projects exhibited at the booth is a transformative research collaboration with the Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO). The partnership involves applying 3-D printing, or additive manufacturing, processes to create molds for wind turbine blades. The processes currently used to manufacture utility-scale wind turbine blades – which can average over 150 feet in length – are complex, energy-intensive, and time-consuming.
