Idaho National Laboratory is positioned to support a wide variety of full-scale and practical testing opportunities for federal and industrial collaborators. INL’s has a campus in Idaho Falls and an isolated 890-square mile Site located about 45 miles west of Idaho Falls. The Site’s unparalleled geography includes several dedicated test ranges and available airspace that allows research to be conducted safely and securely.

Energy Technology Proving Ground

This proving ground will support maturation of integrated-energy-system technologies through a plug-and-play model. This will allow government research programs and industry partners to model, test, and validate the performance of new technologies—from early development to pre-commercial deployment—while establishing a pathway to achieve a net-zero INL campus and decarbonize industries and municipalities across the nation.
