Beyond Cars: Electrifying Trucks and Planes

During our EV road trip through the Midwest, we got a glimpse of the many modes of transportation that are prime for electrification. While long-range electric passenger vehicles like the Tesla Model 3 and the Chevy Bolt get a lot of attention, 59 percent of emissions from the transportation sector actually comes from vehicles that are not passenger cars. This two-part…

Energy’s Future – Battery and Storage Technologies

The efforts to lift our power generation and electrical grid into the 21st century is a multipronged effort. It needs a new generation mix of low-carbon sources that include hydro, renewables and nuclear, ways to capture carbon that don’t cost a zillion dollars, and ways to make the grid smart. But battery and storage technologies have had a hard time keeping…


Engineering professor believes in the power of nuclear energy

But his belief in nuclear as a key component in the world’s green energy future has never wavered. To that end, he helps…


The Quick-Thinking, Self-Driving Energy Grid of the Future

A quick-thinking, self-driving energy grid of the future — an autonomous energy grid — is being developed by researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The goal is to integrate and make the best use of the many distributed energy resources (DERs) expected to come online in the coming years, providing for fast-acting responses to grid problems…
