Researchers from Idaho National Laboratory and New Mexico-based Visgence Inc. have designed and demonstrated a technology that can block cyberattacks from impacting the nation's electric power grid.
Idaho National Laboratory tested how small hydropower plants can serve as reliable sources of startup power during outages.
Two cybersecurity researchers at Idaho National Laboratory have published a new book to help train employees at public utilities to recognize cybersecurity vulnerabilities and develop measures to defend their networks from increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks.
Long before an advanced nuclear reactor begins to generate power or another complicated project comes to life, researchers and engineers model and simulate it to ensure success. Now a collaboration between Idaho National Laboratory and Orem, Utah-based Coreform makes this modeling and simulation faster, less costly and more efficient.
Future novel hybrid energy systems could lead to paradigm shifts in clean energy production, according to a paper published last week in Joule.
Minneapolis-based Xcel Energy will work with Idaho National Laboratory to demonstrate a system that uses a nuclear plant's steam and electricity to split water. The resulting hydrogen will initially be used at the power plant, but it could eventually be sold to other industries.
