Sandia analysis of tradeoffs across light-duty vehicle fleet power trains, fuels, and energy sources appears in the journal Energy Policy

Sandia researchers conducted a parametric analysis to examine the supply demand interactions between the US light-duty vehicle (LDV) fleet, its fuels, and the corresponding primary energy sources through 2050. The analysis emphasizes competition between conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, including hybrids, and electric vehicles (EVs), represented by both plug-in hybrid and battery electric vehicles. The…

Sandia/CRF Receive R&D100 Award for Cooler technology

Sandia was a recipient of the prestigious R&D100 award for work on the Sandia Cooler, a technology developed by Jeff Koplow at the CRF. The Cooler, which was featured in an earlier CRF story, can significantly reduce the energy needed to cool processor chips in data centers and large-scale computing environments, and offers benefits in…
