    Broader source: Energy.gov [DOE]

    Good morning. I wanted to follow up on our discussion regarding Section 4.4 of the briefing document used for the QER event on Energy Infrastructure Financing. Per my earlier comments, information in that section does not accurately reflect the business model of pipelines, and particularly for the "midstream" sector, or those gathering and processing activities and intrastate pipelines. Further, it does not accurately describe the "utility" designation of these lines or how or why these designations are used. It is also important to note that the reference to "take-or-pay" contracts is particularly concerning as those types of contracts are prohibited in many states as I understand it. I have attached an updated redline version of that section that addresses the issues. I would be more than happy to work with someone to correct the language if the suggested language does not work for any reason. Thank you for your consideration of the comments and proposed changes. Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can be of further assistance.

  13. QER- Comment of Cynthia Henshaw

    Broader source: Energy.gov [DOE]

    Hello, I have several comments regarding the hearing and document put together regarding infrastructure constraints in New England. 1. Why did the document not discuss the waste and losses of natural gas through existing pipeline leaks? The most cost-effective carbon savings within New England is to repair existing natural gas leaks. If we invested our dollars to upgrade existing transmission, storage and distribution capacity in New England we would not need additional gas pipelines and we'd help protect out health and the environment. These infrastructure improvements should be completed before creating more environmental damage and disruption to additional communities. 2. The best way to encourage investment in infrastructure that will address vulnerabilities is to encourage local energy production - continue to expand local solar panel use (on houses, store roofs and larger systems) and encourage continued development of alternative wind turbines that do not have the environmental and community impacts as the large turbines so that they can be cited near the electric demand. We need to take responsibility for the energy that we use. That means understanding how to generate our own electricity, and promoting conservation and energy efficiency throughout New England. 3. Tennessee Gas is proposing a new gas pipeline across the northern tier of Massachusetts. Why are they not expanding their existing infrastructure that already runs across the southern tier of the state? They already have the rights-of-way and infrastructure in place. The company has not been forthcoming with answers, which sows seeds of distrust. If the company, and federal and state regulators want to increase pipeline capacity then answers to reasonable questions need to be given. AND the public needs to have more than ONE WEEK to provide questions. 4. The Tennessee Gas Pipeline proposed for the northern tier of Massachusetts targets existing conservation infrastructure that was protected for a

  17. Got Questions About the Higgs Boson? Ask a Scientist

    ScienceCinema (OSTI)

    Hinchliffe, Ian

    2013-05-29

    Ask a scientist about the Higgs boson. There's a lot of buzz this week over new data from CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and the final data from Fermilab's Tevatron about the Higgs boson. It raises questions about what scientists have found and what still remains to be found -- and what it all means. Berkeley Lab's Ian Hinchliffe invites you to send in questions about the Higgs. He'll answer a few of your questions in a follow-up video later this week. Hinchliffe is a theoretical physicist who heads Berkeley Lab's sizable contingent with the ATLAS experiment at CERN. ? Post your questions in the comment box ? E-mail your questions to askascientist@lbl.gov ? Tweet to @BerkeleyLab ?

    Tremendous progress has been made in mapping out the spectrum of hadrons over the past decade with plans to make further advances in the decade ahead. Baryons and mesons, both expected and unexpected, have been found, the results of precision experiments often with polarized beams, polarized targets and sometimes polarization of the final states. All these hadrons generate poles in the complex energy plane that are consequences of strong coupling QCD. They reveal how this works.

    Pure Antineutron Beams Hello, I am a physics student in Germany. I haven't had particle physics yet, so I'd be glad if you answered me one question: How do you create more or less pure anti-neutron beams in your accelerator?? I'm sure it's possible somehow but I just don't know the way to relize that. The "options" I got to know by now: collision of anti-protons with carbon nuclei can result in anti-neutrons decay of lambda-particles (how would you create them?) I guess the main

    You asked: What happens if you take 2 quantum entangled particles, and untangle them and put one of these particles in a blackhole? The other should demonstrate what is going on inside a blackhole; according to Einstien's "spooky action at a distance", right? Wouldn't this violate the principle that no light, or information, escapes a blackhole?

    Question About Splitting Molecules "Can you use particle accelerators to break up molecules into their elements?" The short answer is yes. The long answer is more complicated. You can think of molecules as wads of warm taffy with marbles in it (where the marbles are the atoms, and the warm taffy is what keeps them together). If you look at a marble (atom), you find that it has BB's inside, but they're held together with cold taffy (meaning they are held more firmly). If you continue to

    How strong is the strong force? You Wrote: How strong is the strong force? I bet you think you asked a simple question. The simple answer is that the strength depends on the range over which it is acting. At short distances the strong force is weak and at long distances it is strong. That is completely different from the other three forces and arises because the forces transmitters, called gluons, are massless and carry strong force charge. I hope that you are still interested in the more

  20. Answering Key Fuel Cycle Questions

    SciTech Connect (OSTI)

    Piet, S.J.; Dixon, B.W.; Bennett, R.G.; Smith, J.D.; Hill, R.N.

    2004-10-03

    Given the range of fuel cycle goals and criteria, and the wide range of fuel cycle options, how can the set of options eventually be narrowed in a transparent and justifiable fashion? It is impractical to develop all options. We suggest an approach that starts by considering a range of goals for the Advanced Fuel Cycle Initiative (AFCI) and then posits seven questions, such as whether Cs and Sr isotopes should be separated from spent fuel and, if so, what should be done with them. For each question, we consider which of the goals may be relevant to eventually providing answers. The AFCI program has both ''outcome'' and ''process'' goals because it must address both waste already accumulating as well as completing the fuel cycle in connection with advanced nuclear power plant concepts. The outcome objectives are waste geologic repository capacity and cost, energy security and sustainability, proliferation resistance, fuel cycle economics, and safety. The process objectives are rea diness to proceed and adaptability and robustness in the face of uncertainties.

    The Advanced Fuel Cycle Initiative (AFCI) program has both “outcome” and “process” goals because it must address both waste already accumulating as well as completing the fuel cycle in connection with advanced nuclear power plant concepts. The outcome objectives are waste geological repository capacity and cost, energy security and sustainability, proliferation resistance, fuel cycle economics, and safety. The process objectives are readiness to proceed and adaptability and robustness in the face of uncertainties. A classic decision-making approach to such a multi-attribute problem would be to weight individual quantified criteria and calculate an overall figure of merit. This is inappropriate for several reasons. First, the goals are not independent. Second, the importance of different goals varies among stakeholders. Third, the importance of different goals is likely to vary with time, especially the “energy future.” Fourth, some key considerations are not easily or meaningfully quantifiable at present. Instead, at this point, we have developed 16 questions the AFCI program should answer and suggest an approach of determining for each whether relevant options improve meeting each of the program goals. We find that it is not always clear which option is best for a specific question and specific goal; this helps identify key issues for future work. In general, we suggest attempting to create as many win-win decisions (options that are attractive or neutral to most goals) as possible. Thus, to help clarify why the program is exploring the options it is, and to set the stage for future narrowing of options, we have developed 16 questions, as follows: · What are the AFCI program goals? · Which potential waste disposition approaches do we plan for? · What are the major separations, transmutation, and fuel options? · How do we address proliferation resistance? · Which potential energy futures do we plan for? · What potential external triggers do we
