As America warms to renewable energy, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is creating technologies that efficiently tap natural resources to deliver power for the nation. One potential advance in geothermal energy involves a PNNL-developed material, synthesized nanoscale metal organic heat carriers. The material, shown in the colorized image, is designed for the more efficient conversion of heat extracted from geothermal sources to electricity. It promises improved cost effectiveness, and could expand the range of geothermal resources suitable for economic power production or waste heat recovery. The Geothermal Technologies Office, within the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, funds the research. The material was developed at PNNL and characterized at EMSL, the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory, a DOE Office of Science national scientific user facility located at PNNL.
