More Power to You: Charging Ahead w/ Better Energy Storage & a Smarter Grid (hosted by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory)
For the first time ever, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is opening its doors and inviting the public to a series of live tours.
For the first time ever, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is opening its doors and inviting the public to a series of free, live, virtual tours of numerous labs on its Richland campus. Researchers from across PNNL will be your hosts as you discover the spaces and instruments behind our science and impact. Learn about nuclear explosion monitoring, the science and hardware behind machine learning and artificial intelligence, our work in nuclear energy and environmental management, and so much more.
Visit the Glass Lab at our Applied Process Engineering Laboratory, get a behind-the-scenes look at grid operations in our Electricity Infrastructure Operations Center, and get a look at one of five nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers in the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory.
All tours are one-hour and accessible via Zoom. During the tour, you are encouraged to submit questions to your hosts (researchers at PNNL) via Zoom’s chat function. The tours are open to all ages.
Please see the tour description and registration link below:
Researchers at PNNL are working toward a carbon-free energy future while making the electric grid more reliable and resilient. Look inside the Electricity Infrastructure Operations Center, a functional utility control room where we study volumes of real electricity grid data and explore next-generation tools for managing and controlling the energy system. Then, visit the Life Sciences Laboratory where robots help accelerate new energy storage materials discovery for better batteries.
Please register here in advance to receive the Zoom link and information.
