Increasing the range of electric vehicles!
 
PNNL researchers have developed a metal organic framework nanomaterial that could extend the lifespan of lithium-sulfur batteries and increase the range of electric vehicles. "Lithium-sulfur batteries have the potential to power tomorrow's electric vehicles, but they need to last longer after each charge and be able to be repeatedly recharged," said PNNL materials chemist Jie Xiao. "Our metal organic framework may offer a new way to make that happen." Read more at http://1.usa.gov/1qYAJRp.

God as my witness I love the idea of it.
But ( May be ) is not the answer I was hoping for.
Considering the cost, weight and longevity I still favor Hydrogen.

Wind power!
 
If only the wind blew consistently, power generation would be so simple. This is how we're combining fieldwork, advanced simulation and statistical analysis to optimize energy production from this varying and uncertain power source.

Poetry contest.
 
Are you a creative writer? Can you write a "Sci-ku? The +DOE Joint Genome Institute is celebrating #NationalPoetryMonth , with a call for #science poetry. Submit yours today!   #NaPoMo  
In honor of National Poetry Month, we’re celebrating an underutilized method of communicating our science: poetry. According to Merriam-Webster, poetry is defined as, “writing that formulates a concentrated imaginative awareness of experience in language chosen and arranged to create a specific emotional response through meaning, sound, and rhythm.” As proof that science can (and has)...

Story
Tagline
U.S. Department of Energy OSTI has been making government R&D results transparent since 1947.
Introduction
The Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) produces a variety of databases making U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) scientific and technical information freely accessible to the public. OSTI also has created a number of federated search tools to accelerate access to scientific and technical information from beyond DOE.


OSTI Databases and Search Tools:

  • SciTech Connect -- Find DOE R&D citations and full-text documents, plus other energy related citations of interest to DOE.
  • DOE R&D Accomplishments – Find information about the outcomes of past DOE R&D.
  • DOepatents – Find patents resulting from DOE-sponsored research and development.
  • E-print Network – Find e-prints in basic and applied sciences..
  • ScienceCinema – Find scientific videos highlighting research and development sponsored by DOE.
  • DOE Data Explorer – Find scientific research data generated in the course of DOE-sponsored research in various science disciplines.
  • Energy Science and Technology Software Center – Find DOE-funded scientific and technical software developed by the national laboratories, other facilities and DOE contractors.
  • DOE Technology Transfer -- Find information about the Department of Energy Technology transfer program.
  • National Library of Energy -- Find and access information from across the DOE complex nationwide, without knowing DOE's organizational structure.
US and Global Science Information Databases:
  • Science.gov – Find selected science information provided by U.S. Government agencies.
  • WorldWideScience.org – Find science from participating nations of every inhabited continent.
  • ETDEWEB – Register for access to worldwide energy technology discoveries.
  • International Nuclear Information System – Find International bibliographic records related to peaceful applications of nuclear science and technology.
