EERE Success Story—ORNL Unveils 3D-Printed Home and Vehicle with the Unique Ability to Power One Another

In September, the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) announced successful efforts of the the lab’s Additive Manufacturing Integrated Energy (AMIE) demonstration. The nine-month project reached its goal of 3D-printing an alternative fuel vehicle and a paired building structure, both featuring the unique ability to power one another.

EERE Success Story—Promising Inspection Technique for Vehicle Welding Offers Efficient Alternative

The average car uses more than 4,000 spot welds to hold its parts together.  While manufacturers currently inspect the quality of welds by prying apart samples, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) recently licensed a non-destructive technology that could check all welds in real-time on the production line.  This new technology could make this process faster and more efficient, allowing vehicles to be safer and of a higher quality. Oak Ridge developed this technology through a research project supported by EERE’s Vehicle Technologies Office.
