    Transforming Tech: PNNL on Cutting Edge of ARPA-E Research

    The 41 projects selected under OPEN 2015 will pursue novel approaches to energy innovation across the full spectrum of energy applications, with approximately 36 percent of the projects led by universities, 39 percent by small businesses, 10 percent by large businesses, 10 percent by national labs, and 5 percent by non-profits. For example, three technologies -- a computational tool to improve power grid planning, a process to create biofuel from kelp, and a hybrid device that makes hydrogen and stores energy -- are being developed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and its partners.
