Computing Power Addresses Nuclear Energy Concerns

Scientists at the Nuclear Science and Technology Division of the U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Lab are bringing together decades of nuclear energy and safety expertise with high-performance computing to effectively address a range of nuclear energy - and security-related - challenges. One of the goals of the Lab's Nuclear Science and Technology Division is to bring together what we know about nuclear energy, nuclear national security modeling, and simulation capabilities with high-performance computing. That will solve problems that were previously unthinkable, or impractical, in terms of the computing power required to address them. One example is using computational methods and software to simulate radiation, in order to support the design and safety of nuclear facilities.

Energy Use Website

A new website has been launched that communicates essential information about America's energy situation, based on the vast holdings of reports from the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, the Institute of Medicine, and the National Research Council. A finalist for the Webby Award in the category of science, the site called "What You Need to Know About Energy" provides an overview of our current energy system in the United States, and covers the uses for energy, sources of energy, the cost of energy including to cost to the environment, national security, and sustainability, and energy efficiency. It identifies each of the energy sources we rely on today - ranging from wind to nuclear to oil - and tracks how each is used. You'll find it at needtoknow.nas.edu.

Let the sunshine!

The U.S. Army has picked two firms -- Clark Energy Group of Bethesda, and Acciona Solar Power of Henderson, Nevada -- to help develop and build the largest solar power array in the Department of Defense. It will be built at Fort Irwin, in California's Mojave Desert. When complete, the solar farm will generate 500 megawatts using photovoltaic cells, and solar concentrators, which turns the heat of the sun into electricity.
