Integrated Energy Research & Capabilities
INL researchers develop and test new specialized materials for manufacturing, as well as the research and application testing of intelligent and resilient systems to produce more effective approaches to manufacturing.
INL researchers are discovering energy-efficient solutions to enhance our nation’s clean transportation through work in bioenergy, hydrogen and fuel cells, energy storage, advanced vehicles, real-time electric grid simulation and data analysis.
Clean Energy Integration
INL works to optimize hybrid energy systems to expand the nation’s energy portfolio, invent new materials and processes for nuclear systems, and integrate renewable energy sources to ensure energy reliability.
INL research aims to reduce the environmental impact of energy and technology resources. We are improving recycling techniques, chemical production and separations, and water use and reuse.
