ACME: Climate Modeling Powered by DOE Supercomputers, Tamed by Uncertainty Quantification

Post, September 22, 2014 • Facing increasing evidence of climate change, scientists around the world are working to improve climate modeling, hoping to provide decision makers solid projections to guide the development of mitigating policies. Khachik Sargsyan is leading a Sandia effort to strengthen climate models through uncertainty quantification (UQ) for the Accelerated Climate Model...

EERE Officials Visit CRF

Post, May 21, 2014 •   Paul Miles leads David Danielson, on the far left, and the rest of the group through the small-bore diesel/light-duty diesel laboratory. On April 14, officials from the DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) visited the Combustion Research Facility. The guests included David Danielson, EERE Assistant Secretary;...

Free-Piston Engines: A Possible Route to Hybrid-Electric Vehicles

Post, November 20, 2014 • A Sandia team is pursuing a novel route to hybrid-electric vehicles: the free-piston engine. So called because the piston is not mechanically linked to other engine systems, such as the crankshaft, the free-piston engine may provide greater efficiency than its conventional diesel and gasoline counterparts. Fueled by renewably sourced hydrogen,...

Portable Hydrogen Fuel Cell Unit to Provide Green, Sustainable Power to Honolulu Port

Post, April 3, 2014 • Clean hydrogen power that’s expected to lower emissions and reduce energy consumption will be coming to the Port of Honolulu in 2015 after the completion of a new fuel cell technology demonstration, one that could lead to a commercial technology for ports worldwide. A new fuel cell demonstration project led...

Sandia to demonstrate Hydrogen Risk Assessment Models toolkit prototype

Post, June 18, 2014 • With recent hydrogen fuel cell vehicle market acceleration, cities and neighborhoods where these cars are being sold exhibit a growing need to advance hydrogen fueling system deployments. Understanding and assessing hydrogen-fueling and -storage system risks is a challenging proposition because the necessary scientific information is diffuse and found only in...

Sandia, Hawaii Hydrogen Carriers Partner on Hydrogen Storage System for Forklifts

Post, May 1, 2014 • Zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell systems soon could be powering the forklifts used in warehouses and other industrial settings at lower costs and with faster refueling times than ever before, courtesy of a partnership between Sandia National Laboratories and Hawaii Hydrogen Carriers (HHC). The goal of the project is to design...
