  • Launching fusion reactions without a central magnet, or solenoid
    The tokamak is an experimental chamber that holds a gas of energetic charged particles, plasma, for developing energy production from nuclear fusion. Most large tokamaks create the plasma with solenoids. But future tokamaks must do without solenoids, which run in short pulses rather than for weeks or months at a time as commercial fusion power […]
  • NREL Selected to Spearhead Four Projects in DOE’s Newest Lab Impact Program
    By heather.lammers@nrel.gov (Heather Lammers) October 28, 2016 The Energy Department (DOE) recently announced a new pilot program called Lab-Bridge that will make it easier for DOE national laboratories to transfer their innovative technologies to the marketplace. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has been selected to participate in four of the eight pilot projects and […]

  • Measure in Florida That Claims to Back Solar Power May Discourage It
    By By JOHN SCHWARTZ Opponents of the proposed constitutional amendment on the Nov. 8 ballot say that it was written to fool voters and could make panels more costly. Read more here:: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/28/science/florida-solar-power-referendum.html       
  • Elusive intermediate compound discovered in atmospheric chemistry
    Physicists have identified a long-missing piece in the puzzle of exactly how fossil fuel combustion contributes to air pollution and a warming climate. Performing chemistry experiments in a new way, they observed a key molecule that appears briefly during a common chemical reaction in the atmosphere.
