    1. PNNL Scientist to Congress: Better Batteries Mean BetterGrid

      PNNL Scientist to Congress: Better Batteries Mean BetterGrid

      Renewable energy use is being held back for lack of a better battery, said the chairman of a House subcommittee Friday after hearing testimony from a Pacific Northwest National Laboratory scientist and others. Jud Virden, director of energy and environment research at the Department of Energy’s national lab in Richland, testified before the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology’s Subcommittee on Energy, along with industry and DOE leaders.

    2. Proposed Law Could Help Commercialize PNNL Technology

      Proposed Law Could Help Commercialize PNNL Technology

      The U.S. House has passed legislation to help move more discoveries out of Department of Energy national laboratories such as Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and into use in the marketplace. "It is essential we update Cold War-era policies, acknowledge the rapid pace of technological change and improve the labs' capacity to partner with private enterprise and convert their cutting edge research into marketplace innovation," said Rep. Randy Hultgren, R-Ill.

    3. PNNL Studies Nighttime Solar Use

      PNNL Studies Nighttime Solar Use

      Pacific Northwest National Laboratory researchers will develop a system to use solar heat after the sun goes down with a $2.9 million grant awarded last week. The grant was among $10 million awarded by the Department of Energy to advance research on concentrating solar power with thermochemical storage systems. DOE’s SunShot Initiative is working to develop concentrating solar power technologies and make solar energy cost competitive with traditional forms of electricity by the end of the decade.

    4. Energy-Storage System to Move to Richland

      Energy-Storage System to Move to Richland

      A portable energy-storage system is moving to Richland from the Nine Canyon Wind Project for the next phase of testing. The 20-foot shipping container filled with batteries will be connected to the First Street Substation, where it will be programmed to test several electricity distribution scenarios. They include seeing if the system can reduce electricity bought at peak times when the price is highest by storing lower-cost power until it is needed.
