What should buildings look like in 100 years?
Researchers at +Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) made a blueprint for buildings that are more comfortable, efficient and intelligent than today. Take a look at the buildings of the future: http://energy.gov/articles/buildings-future

Jump for joy! The next +DOE Solar Decathlon is officially set for October 5 - 15, 2017 in Denver. The collegiate competition challenges student teams to design, build and operate beautiful solar-powered houses that are cost-effective and energy-efficient. It's never too early to start planning for next year's event, which includes even more family-friendly (and free!) activities. Learn more: http://bit.ly/2bih5nh ☀️  #SD2017

America's wind energy sector grew by 12 percent last year, adding nearly 8.6 gigawatts of new capacity. That's faster growth than any other source of electricity generation in the country!

The wind industry also supported 88,000 jobs and generated 190 million megawatt hours of electricity in 2015 -- enough to power 19 million average U.S. homes and saving the equivalent of more than 130 million metric tons of carbon dioxide.

Check out our new reports for a full breakdown of the nation's soaring wind industry: http://energy.gov/2015-wind-market-report

UNSCRIPTED: We gave Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz some of the most commonly asked questions on the Iran Deal a year after the agreement was reached.

His answers are as thorough as you’d expect from a nuclear physicist, so take seven minutes to learn about the #IranDeal and how it is working in practice. energy.gov/articles/hard-questions-iran-deal-ernest-moniz

OFFSHORE WIND ARRIVES IN AMERICA. The United States got its first-ever offshore wind farm off the coast of Rhode Island this summer -- and that’s just the beginning.

On Friday, the U.S. Department of Energy and U.S. Department of the Interior announced a new National Offshore Wind Strategy, to tap into the massive potential for wind power along our nation’s shores.

THIS is what small looks like.
Berkeley Lab scientists used an ion beam to engrave an ordinary penny at a microscopic scale. It's pretty incredible to watch ▶ http://bit.ly/2bZ5ppx

Can we turn CO2 into fuel, rather than a pollutant? 🌱🌱🌱

A group of scientists asked that question and found a way to say yes! Check out this research from Argonne National Laboratory, which shows a way to convert carbon dioxide into fuels like methanol. http://bit.ly/2bPkNG3

Eighty percent of goods in the U.S. are hauled by heavy duty -- or Class 8 -- trucks, which use about 28 billion gallons of fuel per year. We're working with industry to develop new technologies to lower fuel consumption and emissions of these big rigs through our ‪#‎SuperTruck‬ initiative, which aims to DOUBLE efficiency of Class 8 trucks.

Learn about this program and 35 other R&D projects that will boost efficiency of cars and trucks, cut carbon pollution and save consumers and businesses money: http://bit.ly/2byd3X ‪#‎ActOnClimate
