Energy security in America

A critical challenge facing our nation is the development of abundant, reliable and sustainable energy from a variety of sources.  

The expertise of SRNL at the Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site is a valuable resource for leading the nation to new, clean, safe and secure methods of obtaining energy sources.  Hydrogen, which is central to SRNL’s history, is proving to have tremendous potential for providing energy for vehicles, homes and industries at large. SRNL has expertise in nuclear technology, materials science, geosciences, microbiology, modeling, atmospheric technologies and biotechnology, all of which contribute to helping the nation meet the crucial need for energy independence. 

It is the mission of the SRNL Energy Security Program to provide technology-based solutions for meeting our country’s energy security objectives. We will do this by providing applied technologies through multidisciplinary programs of scientific research and applied engineering.
