2000px-Sandia_National_Laboratories_logo.svg Sandia National Laboratories is the nation’s premier engineering laboratory, with multi-program responsibilities in nuclear stockpile stewardship, national security technologies, and energy. Sandia’s Hydrogen Program, built on a long history of basic and applied science, supports the nation’s energy strategy, helping to diversify America’s energy sector and reducing our dependence on foreign oil through the advancement of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.

Combining vision, quality, integrity, and technical excellence, LLNL advances our nation’s security through the production, development and deployment of energy resources and technology while understanding and reducing their environmental impacts. LLNL possesses extensive experience in hydrogen fuel technologies and in the high-performance computational resources essential for advanced R&D.

Berkeley_Lab_Logo_Large Berkeley Lab (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. Founded in 1931, Berkeley Lab’s scientific expertise has been recognized with 13 Nobel prizes. Within the hydrogen and related programs, LBNL seeks to understand and optimize next generation energy-related components and materials through physics-based multiscale modeling, novel material discovery, and advanced diagnostics.

About the Hydrogen Materials Advanced Research Consortium

HyMARC is a consortium of three national laboratories: Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, CA; Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory; and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. HyMARC assembles deep national laboratory expertise in hydrogen science, large-scale computational modeling, and state-of-the-art characterization tools to accelerate discovery of solid-state materials for on-board vehicular hydrogen storage.


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.
