      Marine Corps Teams with Sandia on Microgrids and Renewable Energy Planning

      The U.S. Marine Corps are the first boots on the ground in a crisis. On the front lines, they must be able to power up securely without plugging into utilities. They require nothing less than completely reliable and cost-effective energy independence. Researchers from Sandia National Laboratories are collaborating with the Marine Corps to increase their energy security and reduce fuel dependence through alternative technologies, including renewable energy and microgrids. The Marine Corps recently began a new effort with Sandia to develop analytic software tools that will give military decision-makers the quantitative support needed to achieve their long-term renewable energy goals.

      MIT Energy Initiative Welcomes Exelon as Member for Clean Energy Research

      CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI) announces that national energy provider Exelon is joining as a member company, with plans to focus its research support through MITEI's Low-Carbon Energy Centers to advance key enabling technologies crucial to addressing climate change. MITEI's eight Low-Carbon Energy Centers--first called for in MIT's Plan for Action on Climate Change in October 2015--bring together researchers from multiple disciplines at MIT to engage with companies, governmental agencies, and other stakeholders, including the philanthropic community, to develop deployable solutions through a uniquely inclusive model.

    3. Sensitive and Specific: A New Way of Probing Electrolyte/Electrode Interfaces

      Sensitive and Specific: A New Way of Probing Electrolyte/Electrode Interfaces

      One of the most important things to understand in battery technology is the precise physical and chemical processes that occur at the electrode/electrolyte interface. However, microscopic understanding of these processes is quite limited due to a lack of suitable probing techniques. Now, researchers at the US Department of Energy's (DOE) Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California, Berkeley, have developed a new technique that enables sensitive and specific detection of molecules at the electrode/electrolyte interface.
