Environmental Management Assessment of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL)  

SciTech Connect

This report documents the results of the environmental management assessment performed at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado. The onsite portion of the assessment was conducted from September 14 through September 27, 1993, by DOE`s Office of Environmental Audit (EH-24) located within the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Environment, Safety, and Health (EH-1). During this assessment, the activities conducted by the assessment team included reviews of internal documents and reports from previous audits and assessments; interviews with US Department of Energy (DOE) and NREL contractor personnel; and inspections and observations of selected facilities and operations. The environmental management assessment of NREL focused on the adequacy of environmental management systems and assessed the formality of programs employing an approach that recognizes the level of formality implementing environmental programs may vary commensurate with non-nuclear research and development operations. The Assessment Team evaluated environmental monitoring, waste management and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) activities at NREL, from a programmatic standpoint. The results of the evaluation of these areas are contained in the Environmental Protection Programs section of this report. The scope of the NREL Environmental Management Assessment was comprehensive and included all areas of environmental management. At the same time, environmental monitoring, waste management, and NEPA activities were evaluated to develop a programmatic understanding of these environmental disciplines, building upon the results of previous appraisals, audits, and reviews performed at the NREL.

Sustainable NREL: Laboratory Life Cycle Assessment of Environmental Footprint  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has used life cycle assessment to create a carbon dioxide (CO2) environmental footprint. Transportation, water, natural gas and electricity, and solid waste disposal are the major CO2 emission contributors at the Laboratory. In FY 2003 (October 2002-September 2003), these categories yielded a total of 29 million kg CO2 -equivalent. The major components were electricity, 22.3 million kg CO2-equivalent.; and natural gas, 3.275 million kg CO2 (these yield 77% and 11%, respectively, to the CO2 footprint). Other contributors were domestic air travel and commuter travel, both of which came in at 5%, and international air travel at 2%. Solid waste disposal, water, and fleet vehicle emissions were negligible in relation to the other components. NREL is enacting several measures to reduce emissions at the front end of the material life cycle. Green purchasing, reducing water use, reducing the need for travel, and purchasing alternative fuel fleet vehicles are all ways to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions. In addition, recycling helps reduce CO2 emissions in the final stage of the waste disposal life cycle. The large area of interest is obviously the electricity and natural gas consumed at the Laboratory. The Laboratory has implemented almost all life cycle cost effective energy efficiency measures and all new construction is state of the practice. The Laboratory continues to examine ways of simultaneously reducing energy use and maintaining the integrity of its research and development activities.

Dehumidifiers remove moisture from a home's indoor environment, thereby increasing occupant comfort, improving air quality, and reducing the likelihood of mold, rot, and dust mites. To help energy professionals more easily evaluate this technology for the market, National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) researchers tested the efficiency and capacity of a variety of dehumidifiers and developed a generalized approach to simulate any residential dehumidifier. The test results and modeling method are documented in a new report. Typically, dehumidifiers are only rated at a single temperature and humidity, so rating data alone cannot determine whether a product will meet the moisture removal

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

Breakthrough will facilitate future research on Breakthrough will facilitate future research on photosynthetic production of biofuels. Oxygenic photosynthetic microbes (i.e., algae and cyanobacteria) have great potential to produce fuels from sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide. However, cellular growth competes with conversion of carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) into biofuels and necessitates disposal or recycling of biomass. A solution would be to arrest biomass accumulation, while simultaneously redirecting photosynthetically fixed carbon to products of interest. Scientists at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) have achieved a dramatic redirection of carbon allocation from biomass growth to organic acids excretion in a photosyn- thetic microbe blocked for glycogen synthesis.

The NREL Outdoor Accelerated-weathering Tracking System and Photovoltaic Module Exposure Results  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

This paper describes the Outdoor Accelerated-weathering Tracking System (OATS) and interim results for the first OATS study on photovoltaic (PV) modules. With two test planes measuring 1.52 x 1.83 m, OATS provides a unique solar-concentrating exposure capability. Test sample temperatures are moderated by air blowers. Water spray capability exists for wetting samples. The OATS two-axis tracker points to the sun using software calculations. Non-imaging aluminum reflectors give a nominal clear-sky optical concentration ratio of three. Field-qualification measurements in the test plane under reflector conditions showed its relative irradiance non-uniformity was '' 15% for a clear-sky summer day with '' 75 mm as the smallest distance for that non-uniformity. Exposure studies began in November 1997 on seven pairs of commercially available ribbon silicon, crystalline silicon and amorphous silicon PV modules kept at constant resistive load. The modules were periodically removed from OATS for visual inspection and solar simulator performance measurements. There were no module failures. This PV module study is ongoing and later results will be compared to other testing techniques. Through July 1998, the modules under reflector conditions received 392 MJ/m2 of total ultraviolet (TUV) exposure. That was 2.07 times the TUV exposure compared to a south-facing fixed array tilted 40{sup o} up from horizontal at NREL. Similarly, the modules in the test plane under the covered reflectors received 1.04 times the fixed array TUV exposure. For the test plane under the covered reflectors there was a loss of 13% TUV exposure attributed to the reflectors blocking some of the diffuse-sky UV light. Also through July 1998, the OATS sunlight availability measured 95% compared to the cumulative global normal exposure at the NREL Solar Radiation Research Laboratory (SRRL). The OATS sunlight availability losses included downtime when the PV modules were removed, and when there were OAT S tracking problems, maintenance, and repair. For December 1997 through July 1998, the SRRL cumulative exposure was 99% compared to the respective monthly averages from years 1961 through 1990 at Boulder, Colorado.

NREL Solar Radiation Research Laboratory (SRRL): Baseline Measurement System (BMS); Golden, Colorado (Data)  

DOE Data Explorer (OSTI)

The SRRL was established at the Solar Energy Research Institute (now NREL) in 1981 to provide continuous measurements of the solar resources, outdoor calibrations of pyranometers and pyrheliometers, and to characterize commercially available instrumentation. The SRRL is an outdoor laboratory located on South Table Mountain, a mesa providing excellent solar access throughout the year, overlooking Denver. Beginning with the basic measurements of global horizontal irradiance, direct normal irradiance and diffuse horizontal irradiance at 5-minute intervals, the SRRL Baseline Measurement System now produces more than 130 data elements at 1-min intervals that are available from the Measurement & Instrumentation Data Center Web site. Data sources include global horizontal, direct normal, diffuse horizontal (from shadowband and tracking disk), global on tilted surfaces, reflected solar irradiance, ultraviolet, infrared (upwelling and downwelling), photometric and spectral radiometers, sky imagery, and surface meteorological conditions (temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, precipitation, snow cover, wind speed and direction at multiple levels). Data quality control and assessment include daily instrument maintenance (M-F) with automated data quality control based on real-time examinations of redundant instrumentation and internal consistency checks using NREL's SERI-QC methodology. Operators are notified of equipment problems by automatic e-mail messages generated by the data acquisition and processing system. Radiometers are recalibrated at least annually with reference instruments traceable to the World Radiometric Reference (WRR).

Standard Hydrogen Test Protocols for the NREL Sensor Testing Laboratory (Brochure)  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

This brochure summarizes the test protocols used in the NREL Hydrogen Sensor Test Laboratory for the quantitative assessment of critical analytical performance specifications for hydrogen sensors. Researchers at the NREL Hydrogen Safety Sensor Test Laboratory developed a variety of test protocols to quantitatively assess critical analytical performance specifications for hydrogen sensors. Many are similar to, but typically more rigorous than, the test procedures mandated by ISO Standard 26142 (Hydrogen Detector for Stationary Applications). Specific protocols were developed for linear range, short-term stability, and the impact of fluctuations in temperature (T), pressure (P), relative humidity (RH), and chemical environment. Specialized tests (e.g., oxygen requirement) may also be performed. Hydrogen safety sensors selected for evaluation are subjected to a thorough regimen of test protocols, as described. Sensor testing is performed at NREL on custom-built sensor test fixtures. Environmental parameters such as T, P, RH, and gas composition are rigorously controlled and monitored. The NREL evaluations are performed on commercial hydrogen detectors, on emerging sensing technologies, and for end users to validate sensor performance for specific application needs. Test results and data are shared with the manufacturer or client via summary reports, teleconference phone calls, and, when appropriate, site visits to manufacturer facilities. Client representatives may also monitor NREL's operation while their technologies are being tested. Manufacturers may use test data to illustrate the analytical capability of their technologies and, more importantly, to guide future developments. NREL uses the data to assess technology gaps and deployment considerations. Per NREL Sensor Testing Laboratory policy, test results are treated as proprietary and are not shared with other manufacturers or other entities without permission. The data may be used by NREL in open publications (journal articles, presentations, outreach support, and other reports), but will not be attributed to a specific vendor.

Wind LCA Harmonization (Fact Sheet), NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory)  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

NREL recently led the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) Harmonization Project, a study that provides more exact estimates of GHG emissions for renewable and conventional generation, clarifying inconsistent and conflicting estimates in the published literature, and reducing uncertainty. This involved a systematic review and harmonization of life cycle assessment (LCA) literature of utility-scale wind power systems in order to determine the causes of life cycle greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions and, where possible, reduce variability in GHG estimates.

Layering Mismatched Lattices Creates Long-Sought-After Green Light-Emitting Diode (Fact Sheet), NREL Highlights, Science, NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory)  

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

Scientists at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) Scientists at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) invent a deep green LED that can lead to higher-efficiency white light, lower electric bills. The white light light-emitting diode (LED) that promises to revolutionize indoor lighting while dramatically lowering electricity costs had been confounded by the so-called "green gap:" the inability to develop light in the green spectrum that can be combined with red and blue to produce white light. NREL researchers conceptualized a green emission by taking a different look at how the laboratory's solar cell researchers had set a world efficiency record and by changing a key process that had created a red LED. A good green color of light is between 530 and 570 nanometers (nm) on the Color

Office Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, operated by the Alliance for Sustainable Energy, LLC. NREL Develops New Controls that Proactively Adapt to the Wind Until now, wind turbine controls that reduce the impacts of wind gusts and turbulence were always reactive-responding to the wind rather than anticipating it. But with today's laser-based sensors and new controls developed by researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and their industry partners, the wind speed can be measured ahead of the turbine, thereby improving performance, reducing structural loads, and increasing energy capture. The world's first field tests of these controls are currently underway at the National Wind Technology Center (NWTC) at NREL.

User's Guide for the NREL Teetering Rotor Analysis Program (STRAP). [National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL)  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

The following report gives the reader an overview of instructions on the proper use of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (formerly the Solar Energy Research Institute, or SERI) teetering Rotor Analysis Program (STRAP version 2.20). STRAP is a derivative of the Force and Loads Analysis program (FLAP). It is intended as a tool for prediction of rotor and blade loads and response for only two-bladed teetering hub wind turbines. The effects of delta-3, undersling, hub mass, and wind turbulence are accounted for. The objectives of the report are to give an overview of the code and also show the methods of data input and correct code execution steps in order to model an example two-bladed teetering hub turbine. A large portion of the discussion (Sections 6.0, 7.0, and 8.0) is devoted to the subject of inputting and running the code for wind turbulence effects. The ability to include turbulent wind effects is perhaps the biggest change in the code since the release of FLAP version 2.01 in 1988. This report is intended to be a user's guide. It does not contain a theoretical discussion on equations of motion, assumptions, underlying theory, etc. It is intended to be used in conjunction with Wright, Buhl, and Thresher (1988).

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

Designs Promising New Oxides Designs Promising New Oxides for Solar Cells High-efficiency, thin-film solar cells require electrical contacts with high electrical conductivity, and the top contact must also have high optical transparency. This need is currently met by transparent conducting oxides (TCOs), which conduct electricity but are 90% transparent to visible light. Scientists at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) have derived three key design principles for selecting promising materials for TCO contacts. NREL's application of these design principles has resulted in a 10,000-fold improvement in conductivity for one TCO material. The upper TCO contact in a solar cell allows light to reach the absorber material below, which is the layer that generates free electrons via the photovoltaic effect.

Triples Previous Estimates of Triples Previous Estimates of U.S. Wind Power Potential The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) recently released new estimates of the U.S. potential for wind-generated electricity, using advanced wind mapping and validation techniques that triple previous estimates of the size of the nation's wind resources. The new study, conducted by NREL and AWS TruePower, finds that the contiguous 48 states have the potential to generate up to 37 million gigawatt-hours annually. In comparison, the total U.S. electricity generation from all sources was roughly 4 million gigawatt-hours in 2009. Detailed state-by-state estimates of wind energy potential for the United States show the estimated average wind speeds at an 80-meter height. The wind resource maps and estimates

NREL Uses Computing Power to Investigate Tidal Power (Fact Sheet), Innovation: The Spectrum of Clean Energy Innovation, NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory)  

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

Uses Computing Power to Uses Computing Power to Investigate Tidal Power Researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) have applied their knowledge of wind flow and turbulence to simulations of underwater tidal turbines. Inspired by similar simulations of wind turbine arrays, NREL researchers used their wind expertise, a supercomputer, and large-eddy simulation to study how the placement of turbines affects the power production of an underwater tidal turbine array. As tides ebb and flow, they create water currents that carry a significant amount of kinetic energy. To capture this energy, several companies are developing and deploying devices known as horizontal-axis tidal turbines, which resemble small wind turbines. These devices can be arranged in an array of multiple turbines to maximize the energy extracted in tidal

NREL's analytic equation uses open-circuit voltage data to NREL's analytic equation uses open-circuit voltage data to determine how much recombination occurs via different channels in a solar cell. Shockley-Reed-Hall recombination plays an important role in determining the performance of solar cells that are limited by defects. Critical regions with problematic defect recombina- tion can include the space-charge region (SCR), quasi-neutral region (QNR), base-emitter interface, and surfaces. The dominant recombination mechanism in a solar cell can be identified experimentally by measuring open-circuit voltage (V OC ) as a function of temperature and light intensity. But existing analytical formulas for V OC are currently derived for a single mechanism-and they do not permit separate determination of the magnitude of recombination in each region.

Second-Use Li-Ion Batteries to Aid Automotive and Utility Industries (Fact Sheet), NREL Highlights in Research & Development, NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory)  

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

Repurposing lithium-ion batteries at the end of useful life Repurposing lithium-ion batteries at the end of useful life in electric drive vehicles could eliminate owners' disposal concerns and offer low-cost energy storage for certain applications. Increasing the number of plug-in electric drive vehicles (PEVs) is one major strategy for reduc- ing the nation's oil imports and greenhouse gas emissions. However, the high up-front cost and end-of-service disposal concerns of their lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries could impede the proliferation of such vehicles. Re-using Li-ion batteries after their useful automotive life has been proposed as a way to remedy both matters. In response, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and its partners are conducting research to identify, assess, and verify profitable

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

Explores Earth-Abundant Explores Earth-Abundant Materials for Future Solar Cells Researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) are using a theory-driven technique-sequential cation mutation-to understand the nature and limitations of promising solar cell materials that can replace today's technologies. Finding new materials that use Earth-abundant elements and are easily manufactured is important for large-scale solar electricity deployment. The goal of the U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative is to reduce the installed cost of solar energy systems by about 75% by the end of the decade. Obtaining that goal calls for photovoltaic (PV) technologies to improve in three main areas: solar-cell efficiencies, material processing costs, and scalability to the terawatt (TW), or 10

Invents a Superior Diagnostics Invents a Superior Diagnostics Tool for Solar Cell Manufacturing A solid-state optical system, invented by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and commercialized by Tau Science, measures solar cell quantum efficiency (QE) in less than a second, enabling a suite of new capabilities for solar cell manufacturers. QE measurements indicate how well a solar cell converts the various wavelengths of sunlight into electricity. To ensure quality and optimize solar cell efficiency, solar cell manufacturers want to measure the QE of every cell they produce. When a cell does not perform in a certain wavelength range, that tells manufacturers to adjust their production tools to fix the problem. So measuring QE is a crucial diagnostic tool for solar cell performance.

NREL Scientists Spurred the Success of Multijunction Solar Cells (Fact Sheet), Innovation: The Spectrum of Clean Energy Innovation, NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory)  

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

Scientists Spurred the Success Scientists Spurred the Success of Multijunction Solar Cells Before 1984, many scientists believed that high-quality gallium indium phosphide (GaInP) alloys could not be grown for use as semiconductors because the alloys would separate. One researcher at the Solar Energy Research Institute (SERI) thought differently. His name was Jerry Olson, and his innovative thinking changed solar history. Olson identified a material combination that allowed the multijunction cell to flourish. It is now the workhorse that powers satellites and the catalyst for renewed interest in concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) products. In the early 1980s, Olson was a scientist at SERI, the predecessor of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). At the time, solar researchers were looking for the ideal combina-

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

Computer Models Computer Models Integrate Wind Turbines with Floating Platforms Far off the shores of energy-hungry coastal cities, powerful winds blow over the open ocean, where the water is too deep for today's seabed-mounted offshore wind turbines. For the United States to tap into these vast offshore wind energy resources, wind turbines must be mounted on floating platforms to be cost effective. Researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) are supporting that development with computer models that allow detailed analyses of such floating wind turbines. Coupling wind turbines and floating platforms requires complex computer models. Land- based wind turbines are designed and analyzed using simulation tools, called computer-aided engineering (CAE) design tools, that are capable of predicting a design's dynamic response to

NREL Quickens its Tech Transfer Efforts  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Innovations and 'aha' movements in renewable energy and energy efficiency, while exciting in the lab, only truly live up to their promise once they find a place in homes or business. Late last year President Obama issued a directive to all federal agencies to increase their efforts to transfer technologies to the private sector in order to achieve greater societal and economic impacts of federal research investments. The president's call to action includes efforts to establish technology transfer goals and to measure progress, to engage in efforts to increase the speed of technology transfer and to enhance local and regional innovation partnerships. But, even before the White House began its initiative to restructure the commercialization process, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory had a major effort underway designed to increase the speed and impact of technology transfer activities and had already made sure its innovations had a streamlined path to the private sector. For the last three years, NREL has been actively setting commercialization goals and tracking progress against those goals. For example, NREL sought to triple the number of innovations over a five-year period that began in 2009. Through best practices associated with inventor engagement, education and collaboration, NREL quadrupled the number of innovations in just three years. Similar progress has been made in patenting, licensing transactions, income generation and rewards to inventors. 'NREL is known nationally for our cutting-edge research and companies know to call us when they are ready to collaborate,' William Farris, vice president for commercialization and technology transfer, said. 'Once a team is ready to dive in, they don't want be mired in paperwork. We've worked to make our process for licensing NREL technology faster; it now takes less than 60 days for us to come to an agreement and start work with a company interested in our research.' While NREL maintains a robust patent portfolio, often companies are looking to do more than just license a technology. These relationships are invaluable in successfully moving technologies from NREL to the marketplace. 'We may generate new and potentially valuable innovations, but our commercialization partners do the heavy work of building a successful business around our technology,' Farris said. Tools such as CRADAs (Cooperative Research and Development Agreements) allow NREL to continue working with companies to refine and develop technologies. And, working with businesses is an area where NREL excels. NREL is responsible for one quarter of the CRADAs in the DOE system. 'When you look at the results of our CRADA program, you can demonstrate that we are actively engaged with companies in collaborating on research and moving technologies to market,' Farris said. NREL is first among DOE labs with 186 active CRADAs. And last year, NREL also was first with the number of new CRADAs signed. 'Part of the success in our working with industry goes back to NREL's mission to grow and support new industries,' Farris added. 'NREL has basic research capabilities, but we are never going to be the ultimate producer of a commercial product. That is the role of the private sector.' Farris also credits the advocacy and support that the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy at DOE provides for these technology transfer activities. 'EERE's support is critical to our success,' Farris said. To assist the private sector in moving a technology from the lab to the manufacturing line, NREL has a number of programs in place to give that first, or even final, nudge toward commercialization. For instance, the Commercialization Assistance Program helps startups overcome technical barriers by granting free access to 40 hours of work at the lab. Through the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center, NREL also helps clean energy businesses develop strong links with the financial community, as well as other key stakeholders in the commercialization process. In March, NREL formally opened the Colorado Center for Renewable Ene

U.S. Solar Resource Maps and Tools from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL)  

DOE Data Explorer (OSTI)

Solar maps provide monthly average daily total solar resource information on grid cells. The insolation values represent the resource available to a flat plate collector, such as a photovoltaic panel, oriented due south at an angle from horizontal to equal to the latitude of the collector location. [Copied from http://www.nrel.gov/gis/solar.html] Several types of solar maps are made available. The U.S. Solar resource maps show the resource potential for energy from photovoltaics and from concentrating solar power (CSP). Both sets of maps are available in low or high resolution. A dynamic map based on version 2 of PVWATTS calculates electrical energy performance estimates for a grid-connected photovoltaic system. The map of U.S. Solar Measurement Station Locations is also dynamic, showing the spatial distribution of measurement stations across the U.S. that are monitored by programs and agencies such as DOE's Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Program or NREL's Cooperative Network for Renewable Resource Measurements (CONFRRM). Clicking on a station location will take the user to the website of that station. Finally, static map images providing solar resource information averaged by month are also available.

Researchers create a way to prepare doped nanocrystal Researchers create a way to prepare doped nanocrystal solutions for solar thin films that are nontoxic and less expensive than heavy metal-based thin films. Scientists at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the University of Minnesota have developed a method for preparing doped colloids (solutions) of silicon nanocrystals (NCs) as potential nontoxic infrared-absorbing and -emitting alternatives to metal chalcogenide quantum dots. Significant progress in the methods for preparing thin films of semiconductor NCs has recently led to very promising results in which metal chalcogenide (cadmium selenide, lead sulfide, etc.) NC thin films are used as the photoactive layer in solar cells, photodetectors, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), and related technologies.

Two natural enzyme systems-one produced by Two natural enzyme systems-one produced by fungi and the other by bacteria-break down cel- lulose faster if used in combination. The resulting process shows promise for less expensive biofuels. Researchers from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and their partners studied a cocktail of individual fungal enzymes that depoly- merize biomass, and an alternative bacterial system in which multiple biomass-degrading enzymes, termed the cellulosome, are linked together by a protein scaffold. This study suggests that two of the most thoroughly studied and distinct paradigms of biomass degradation, namely free fungal enzymes and multi-enzyme bacterial cellulosomes, function together in an unexpected way to efficiently break down polysaccharides.

Award-Winning Etching Process Award-Winning Etching Process Cuts Solar Cell Costs In general, when it comes to photovoltaic (PV) solar cells, the higher their efficiency, the higher their price tag. To increase cell efficiencies while lowering costs, scientists at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) invented the "black silicon" nanocatalytic wet-chemical etch. This inexpensive, one-step method enables the creation of high-efficiency crystalline silicon solar cells based on an innovative antireflection approach that promises to significantly reduce manufacturing costs. Most of today's solar cells are made from silicon, and NREL's simple antireflection etch turns silicon wafers black, allowing them to absorb more than 98% of incident sunlight.

NREL's improved time-resolved photoluminescence NREL's improved time-resolved photoluminescence method measures minority-carrier lifetime deep within photovoltaic samples to help develop more efficient solar cells. When developing a solar photovoltaic (PV) cell, designers benefit from having tools that can characterize bulk properties of samples. For measuring minority-carrier lifetime, analysis tools such as time-resolved photoluminescence (TRPL) are available. Unfortunately, meth- ods that use above-bandgap laser excitation are dominated by surface effects because of the very strong absorption and very shallow penetration depth of above-bandgap excita- tion. Therefore, the near-surface region of the sample can be examined, but the bulk proper- ties are usually dominated by the effects of the surface.

Assessment of Load and Energy Reduction Techniques (ALERT) Retrocommissioning Case Study of Two National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) Sites  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Portland Energy Conservation Incorporated (PECI) in conjunction with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) staff performed an Assessment of Load and Energy Reduction Techniques (ALERT) retrocommissioning evaluation on several buildings located at the South Table Mountain site and National Wind Technology Center site located in Golden, Colorado. The retrocommissioning process involved a coordinated effort between PECI and NREL staff and was completed in November of 2002. Retrocommissioning (RCx), or existing building commissioning, is an event in the life of a building that applies a systematic investigation process for improving and optimizing a building's energy-using equipment such as the HVAC and other mechanical equipment, lighting equipment, and related controls. The investigation phase for this project identified 33 findings. This paper gives an overview of the project and discusses a few of the operations and maintenance (O&M) findings as well as capital improvement recommendations that have the greatest potential for energy savings. An update on the progress of implementation will also be discussed. The combined measures recommended for implementation result in an estimated total annual savings of 572,444 kWh, 54,114 therms, and a total utility cost savings of $44,040, which correspond to a 7.0% reduction in annual energy usage and 4.4% reduction in annual utility costs. With the measures already implemented, and those in the process thus far, the total estimated savings are 231,924 kWh, 51,550 therms, and $28,920 annual energy savings. Implementation costs were estimated at $56,380, which would result in a 1.9 year average payback. It cost approximately $0.09 per square foot to perform the ALERT RCx assessment. Of the 33 measures identified, energy savings were not calculated for 14 of them due to insufficient data at the time or they are very general and difficult to estimate. Most of the measures focus on O&M improvements, and many of these measures have been implemented, or under evaluation for implementation. It is not unreasonable to assume that the measures under evaluation, if selected for implementation, could account for an additional 1% energy and cost savings.

Enhances the Performance of Enhances the Performance of a Lithium-Ion Battery Cathode Scientists from NREL and the University of Toledo have combined theoretical and experimental studies to demonstrate a promising approach to significantly enhance the performance of lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO 4 ) cathodes for lithium-ion batteries. In the most common commercial design for lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries, the positive electrode or cathode is lithium cobalt oxide (LiCoO 2 ). This material exhibits high electrical conductivity, meaning that it can transport electrons very effectively. However, the cobalt in LiCoO 2 has at least two detrimental characteristics-it is relatively expensive, which leads to higher battery costs, and it is toxic, which poses potential environmental and safety issues.

Customer service model for waste tracking at Los Alamos National Laboratory  

SciTech Connect

The deployment of any new software system in a production facility will always face multiple hurtles in reaching a successful acceptance. However, a new waste tracking system was required at the plutonium processing facility at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) where waste processing must be integrated to handle Special Nuclear Materials tracking requirements. Waste tracking systems can enhance the processing of waste in production facilities when the system is developed with a focus on customer service throughout the project life cycle. In March 2010 Los Alamos National Laboratory Waste Technical Services (WTS) replaced the aging systems and infrastructure that were being used to support the plutonium processing facility. The Waste Technical Services (WTS) Waste Compliance and Tracking System (WCATS) Project Team, using the following customer service model, succeeded in its goal to meet all operational and regulatory requirements, making waste processing in the facility more efficient while partnering with the customer.

NREL Breaks Down Walls for Biofuels NREL Breaks Down Walls for Biofuels November 30, 2009 Researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and ethanol producers are racing to come up with ways to make ethanol from cellulosic biomass that are cheaper and easier to produce than current methods. But they are hitting a wall. Cell walls in plants are making the production of cellulosic ethanol a challenge. So researchers are creating their own computer program to help model and break down the tiny fibers of cellulose - or fibrils - found in plant cells. Although ethanol is becoming more available to consumers, NREL is working closely with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to meet a quickly approaching goal to produce competitively priced ethanol for $1.50 per gallon by 2012.

Geothermal resources-the steam and water that lie below the earth's surface-have the Geothermal resources-the steam and water that lie below the earth's surface-have the potential to supply vast amounts of clean energy. But continuing to produce geothermal power efficiently and inexpensively can require innovative adjustments to the technology used to process it. Located in the Mayacamas Mountains of northern California, The Geysers is the world's larg- est geothermal complex. Encompassing 45 square miles along the Sonoma and Lake County border, the complex harnesses natural steam reservoirs to create clean renewable energy that accounts for one-fifth of the green power produced in California. In the late 1990s, the pressure of geothermal steam at The Geysers was falling, reducing the output of its power plants. NREL teamed with Pacific

NREL Photovoltaic Program FY 1993  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

This report reviews the in-house and subcontracted research and development (R&D) activities under the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) Photovoltaic (PV) Program from October 1, 1992, through September 30, 1993 (fiscal year [FY] 1993). The NREL PV Program is part of the U.S. Department of Energy`s (DOE`s) National Photovoltaics Program, as described in the DOE Photovoltaics Program Plan, FY 1991 - FY 1995. The FY 1993 budget authority (BA) for carrying out the NREL PV Program was $40.1 million in operating funds and $0.9 million in capital equipment funds. An additional $4.8 million in capital equipment funds were made available for the new Solar Energy Research Facility (SERF) that will house the in-house PV laboratories beginning in FY 1994. Subcontract activities represent a major part of the NREL PV Program, with more than $23.7 million (nearly 59%) of the FY 1993 operating funds going to 70 subcontractors. In FY 1993, DOE assigned certain other PV subcontracting efforts to the DOE Golden Field Office (DOE/GO), and assigned responsibility for their technical support to the NREL PV Program. An example is the PV:BONUS (Building Opportunities in the U.S. for Photovoltaics) Project. These DOE/GO efforts are also reported in this document.

"Buried-Anode" Technology Leads to Advanced Lithium Batteries (Fact Sheet), The Spectrum of Clean Energy Innovation, NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory)

It all began in 2001, when three NREL researchers took their thin-film It all began in 2001, when three NREL researchers took their thin-film expertise from window technology research and applied it to a solid-state, thin-film lithium battery. The researchers knew that lithium batteries tended to degrade quickly because the fragile lithium metal anode was on the top of the battery, where any cracks in the encapsulant could lead to rapid failure. The team developed the concept of building the battery in reverse order, depositing first the solid-state electrolyte, made of lithium phosphorous oxynitride (LiPON), then the cathode, a metal oxide. Lithium is typically intercalated (chemically trapped) within the cathode material. Placing an initial charge on the battery causes the lithium ions to migrate out of the cathode

Lessons learned -- NREL Village Power Program  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

In 1993, a workshop was convened at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to discuss the issues of applying renewable energy in a sustainable manner to international rural development. One of the summary recommendations was that NREL could assist in the renewable energy for rural electrification effort by developing and supplying six related activities: resource assessment, comparative analysis and modeling, performance monitoring and analysis, pilot project development, internet-based project data, communications, and training. In response to this recommendation, NREL launched its Village Power Program consisting of these activities that cut across NREL technologies and disciplines. Currently NREL is active in 20 countries, with pilot projects in 12 of those countries. At this time the technologies include photovoltaics, wind, biomass, and hybrids. The rural applications include home lighting and communications, water pumping, schools and health posts, battery charging stations, ecotourism, and village systems. These pilot projects are central to the renewable energy village power development through the demonstration of three aspects critical to replication and implementation of the projects on a significant scale. The three aspects are technical functionality, economic competitiveness, and institutional sustainability. It is important to note that the pilot projects from which NREL's experience has been gained were funded and, in many cases, developed by other organizations and agencies. NREL's role has been one of technical assistance or project management or both. The purpose of this paper is to describe the lessons NREL staff has gleaned from their participation in the various pilot projects. The author hopes that these lessons will help the Renewable Energy-Based Rural Electrification (RERE) community in implementing sustainable projects that lead to replication.

NREL Smart Grid Projects  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Although implementing Smart Grid projects at the distribution level provides many advantages and opportunities for advanced operation and control, a number of significant challenges must be overcome to maintain the high level of safety and reliability that the modern grid must provide. For example, while distributed generation (DG) promises to provide opportunities to increase reliability and efficiency and may provide grid support services such as volt/var control, the presence of DG can impact distribution operation and protection schemes. Additionally, the intermittent nature of many DG energy sources such as photovoltaics (PV) can present a number of challenges to voltage regulation, etc. This presentation provides an overview a number of Smart Grid projects being performed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) along with utility, industry, and academic partners. These projects include modeling and analysis of high penetration PV scenarios (with and without energy storage), development and testing of interconnection and microgrid equipment, as well as the development and implementation of advanced instrumentation and data acquisition used to analyze the impacts of intermittent renewable resources. Additionally, standards development associated with DG interconnection and analysis as well as Smart Grid interoperability will be discussed.
