Building the new energy economy. Reducing environmental risks. Expanding the frontiers of knowledge via innovative scientific research.
👀 ICYMI: Deputy Secretary Turk sat down with @IndianCountry to discuss how Tribes can tap into funding to improve the resilience, reliability, & affordability of their energy systems through the Energy Improvements in Rural or Remote Areas (ERA) program.
@NREL , a DOE National Lab, is collaborating w/ a Colorado manufacturer to help remote communities regain power after outages. The Lab will test the ability of real-time meter data to coordinate rapid energy restoration. Read more about this new project ⬇️
“While the Tribe doesn’t have an abundant amount of natural resources in terms of…coal, gas…we have plenty of renewable energy up in the sky via sunshine.” Tribe-led. DOE-supported. Listen to how the San Pasqual Band of Mission Indians used funding to build a microgrid.
🌎 ON THE ROAD AGAIN: Deputy Secretary David Turk was in Rio de Janeiro today meeting with local business leaders on U.S. <> Brazil civil nuclear power cooperation, and the opportunity for increased investment from U.S. companies.
When Winter Storm Uri hit Texas two years ago, more than 2 in 3 people lost power. Last week, @SecGranholm met w/ Austin Mayor@KirkPWatson & the ADER Pilot Task Force to discuss scaling up Virtual Power Plants—an alternative to increase grid flexibility & reduce fossil fuel use.
According to @BLS_gov , women in unions make 22% more than women who aren’t. Hear from @smartunionworks ’ Lisa Davis on how an all-women's construction apprenticeship program put her on all new career path. “I really haven’t looked back since” #EqualPayDay
BREAKING NEWS: This is an announcement that has been decades in the making. On December 5, 2022 a team from DOE's @Livermore_Lab made history by achieving fusion ignition. This breakthrough will change the future of clean power and America’s national defense forever.
We know All Too Well that if we don't act Swiftly to transition to clean energy, we're telling future generations, "You're On Your Own, Kid." That's bad Karma and out of the Question... so here are 13 things DOE has done over the past month to invest in America's future:
#Harvey update: 287,000+ power outages, 15 refineries shut down. Read our latest situation report ➜ (?: )
@NREL released a report identifying the abundance of clean energy resources Mexico has to start its clean energy transition. This reaffirms @SecGranholm’s observations that the country can play a key role in propelling North America to clean energy.
📣 TOMORROW: @SecGranholm , alongside @NNSAHruby , will announced a major scientific breakthrough accomplished by researchers at our @Livermore_Lab . You don't want to miss this! Tune in LIVE at 10:00 AM ET:
Meet John. He's a proud EV owner and here's why: 💵 Savings ⚕️ Health and safety benefits 🤸♂️ They're fun! #GoCleanSaveGreen 🔌⚡️
UNLIMITED...??? electricity? Scientists employ @argonne supercomputers to develop magnetic #fusion plasma confinement devices as a means to generate unlimited electricity.
