DOE Launches ‘How Energy Works Week’ at

DOE News:

  • Learn the Ins and Outs of Game-Changing Energy Technologies

WASHINGTON, D.C. – This week DOE is celebrating the launch of a new series on How Energy Works. Each day DOE will break down the inner workings of a different energy technology – including particle accelerators, microgrids, 3D printers and wind turbines – while presenting the public with daily opportunities to ask leading experts about the technology of the day on Twitter at 2 p.m. ET. Use the hashtag #HowEnergyWorks on social media to stay engaged throughout the week.


  • Tuesday, June 17 at 2 p.m. ET: How Microgrids Work – Michael Stadler, head of microgrid research at Lawrence Berkeley Lab, and Chris Marnay, an affiliated scientist, will answer all your questions about microgrids — from how they connect and disconnect from the grid to the important role they could play in keeping our grid resilient.
  • Wednesday, June 18 at 2 p.m. ET: How Particle Accelerators Work – Dr. Marty Murphy, an Accelerator Operations Specialist in the Accelerator Operations Department at Fermilab, and Dr. Mei Bai, a physicist at Brookhaven National Laboratory who specializes in accelerator-based techniques that control and probe spin, will answer all of your questions about particle accelerators: how they work, what they do and why it matters.
  • Thursday, June 19 at 2 p.m. ET: How 3D Printing Works – Dr. Ryan Dehoff, a research staff member at Oak Ridge National Lab’s Manufacturing Demonstration Facility, will cover everything you want to know about additive manufacturing — from how 3D printing works and its impact on manufacturing to new advancements and how it could help advance clean energy technologies.
  • Friday, June 20 at 2 p.m. ET: How Wind Turbines Work – Fort Felker, Director of the National Renewable Energy Lab’s National Wind Technology Center, will answer questions on wind energy – from how wind turbines work to U.S. industry growth and the latest technology advancements.
