Big news for clean energy: America’s wind industry is booming, according to two reports we released today that show U.S. wind power grew rapidly to meet rising demand in 2014.

With total installed wind capacity now at nearly 66 gigawatts, wind supplies 4.9 percent of the nation’s electricity! This renewable energy source is a key component of President Obama’s ‪#‎CleanPowerPlan‬ to reduce climate-changing carbon pollution, diversify our energy economy, and boost America’s economic competitiveness.

Why can't they have a pinion gear on the bottom end of a long shaft with 4 turbines at the bottom with a squirrel cage on top turning the shaft.

I wish the superconducting generators will happen sooner than its taken. I feel I should finish drawing out the design and mail it to Los Alamos soon. I sure wish the helium crisis was not so depleted too.

A new material design tested in experiments at SLAC could make low-cost solar panels far more efficient by greatly enhancing their ability to collect the sun’s energy and release it as electricity.
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory is a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science laboratory operated by Stanford University.

Fuel cell technologies -- which generate electricity from hydrogen and emit only water to power vehicles and buildings -- have big potential for America's clean energy economy.

An Energy Department-supported project at the +BMW manufacturing plant in Greer, South Carolina demonstrated a unique way to produce hydrogen for the largest fuel cell forklift fleet in the world: converting biomethane gas from a landfill. More → http://1.usa.gov/1NH7NfI

Ever since she was a child, Dr. Amanda Barry has been fascinated with the natural world. Today, she's one of the leading molecular biologists at +Los Alamos National Laboratory, discovering new ways to make algae-based biofuels more affordable and sustainable.

Read our latest Q&A to learn more about Dr. Barry's work and her advice for future scientists. ➤ http://1.usa.gov/1L8a9S6 ‪#‎WomeninSTEM‬

we know how to make a-biotic alge fuel today, so  why pay her absurd monies when we are starving. You can run a car on corn, but that destroys millions of miles of lands  across the earth and can lead to food shortages. .

The Trinity Test of July 16, 1945 was the first full-scale, real-world test of a nuclear weapon; with the new Trinity supercomputer Los Alamos National Laboratory's goal is to do this virtually, in 3D.

Trinity was the culmination of a fantastic effort of groundbreaking science and engineering by hundreds of men and women at Los Alamos and other Manhattan Project sites. It took them less than two years to change the world.

The Laboratory is marking the 70th anniversary of the Trinity Test because it not only ushered in the Nuclear Age, but with it the origin of today’s advanced supercomputing. We live in the Age of Supercomputers due in large part to nuclear weapons science here at Los Alamos.

National security science, and nuclear weapons science in particular, at Los Alamos National Laboratory have provided a key motivation for the evolution of large-scale scientific computing. Beginning with the Manhattan Project there has been a constant stream of increasingly significant, complex problems in nuclear weapons science whose timely solutions demand larger and faster computers. The relationship between national security science at Los Alamos and the evolution of computing is one of interdependence.

Today the United States and our P5+1 allies reached a historic deal with Iran that will block each of its four pathways to a nuclear weapon. 

Read the statement by Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, who was at the negotiating table to ensure the deal was based on hard science → http://1.usa.gov/1IXEyn5
