The HydroGEN consortium is led by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and includes Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories, Idaho National Laboratory, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. HydroGEN is funded by DOE’s Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office in the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.
HydroGEN aims to facilitate collaborations between federal laboratories, academia and industry. The consortium is guided by a steering committee with representatives from each member lab and DOE. The steering committee is available to clarify the capabilities offered by the consortium and to help interested users identify capabilities relevant to a given research project.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) develops clean energy and energy efficiency technologies and practices, advances related science and engineering, and provides knowledge and innovations to integrate energy systems at all scales. From breakthroughs in fundamental science to new clean energy technologies to integrated energy systems that power our lives, NREL researchers are transforming the way the nation and the world use energy.
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) addresses the world's most urgent scientific challenges by advancing sustainable energy, protecting human health, creating new materials, and revealing the origin and fate of the universe. Berkeley Lab fosters groundbreaking fundamental science that enables transformational solutions for energy and environment challenges, using interdisciplinary teams and by creating advanced new tools for scientific discovery.
Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) delivers essential science and technology to resolve the nation's most challenging security issues. A strong science, technology, and engineering foundation enables Sandia's mission through a capable research staff working at the forefront of innovation, collaborative research with universities and companies, and discretionary research projects with significant potential impact.
Idaho National Laboratory (INL) is the nation’s lead laboratory for nuclear energy research, development, demonstration, and deployment and is engaged in the mission of ensuring the nation’s energy security with safe, competitive and sustainable energy systems and unique national and homeland security capabilities. INL works in each of the strategic goal areas of DOE: energy, national security, science and environment.
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has a mission of strengthening the United States' security by developing and applying world-class science, technology and engineering that enhances the nation's defense; reduces the global threat from terrorism and weapons of mass destruction; and responds with vision, quality, integrity, and technical excellence to scientific issues of national importance.
About the Energy Materials Network (EMN)
Accelerating advanced materials development, from discovery through deployment, has the potential to revolutionize whole industries and is critical for the United States to compete globally in manufacturing in the 21st century. However, today only a small fraction of materials innovations make it to widespread commercialization. The goal of EMN is to dramatically decrease the time-to-market for advanced materials that are critical to manufacturing many clean energy technologies, enabling manufacturers of all sizes to develop and deliver innovative, made-in-America products to the world market.
Through targeted, national lab-led consortia, EMN will leverage more than $40 million in federal funding in 2016 to facilitate industry's access to the unique scientific and technical resources at DOE's national labs in high-performance computing, synthesis and characterization of new materials, and high-impact experimentation. Each EMN consortium will bring together national labs, industry, and academia to focus on specific classes of materials aligned with industry's most pressing challenges related to materials for clean energy technologies. Together, the EMN consortia will form a network of advanced materials R&D capabilities and resources that will support the Administration's commitment to revitalizing American manufacturing and maintaining a competitive edge in the clean energy economy.
