NREL's Renewable Energy Optimization (REopt) tool, developed through FEMP funding, is a screening tool that identifies and prioritizes cost-effective renewable energy opportunities at a single site or across a portfolio of sites. Early in 2015, REopt screened its 2000th federal facility across 18 federal agencies, providing valuable analysis that is directly leading to renewable energy development and deployment across the federal government.
Earlier this year, EERE’s Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) provided key data and analytical support to the White House Council on Environmental Quality to determine the government-wide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction target. As the scorekeeper for federal agency energy performance data, FEMP is uniquely positioned to project the government’s future path in a clean energy economy. In its support to the White House, FEMP assessed the GHG mitigation impact of achieving the key goals for 2025 contained in the Executive Order (EO) including:
When it comes to making performance predictions and cost-of-energy estimates for grid-connected power projects, you can trust SAM to make it happen. SAM, or the System Advisor Model, is a performance and financial analysis tool funded by the SunShot Initiative that was built based on computer models developed at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories, and other organizations.
A battery company supported by the Vehicle Technologies Office (VTO) has an agreement to manufacture silicon nanowire material for lithium-ion batteries on a commercial scale for the first time. OneD Materials, which had a project from 2011 to 2014 with VTO, recently signed a production license and agreement with EaglePicher Technologies, a U.S.
