For something we use every day, energy is a pretty mysterious concept. This Lab investigates what energy is, how it can be converted into useful forms, and why some sources are running low. In our Research Challenge, you'll use scientific data to design renewable energy systems for cities across the U.S.—and compete with others to see whose designs can produce the most power.
We’re surrounded by energy and use it every day, but most of us don’t think much about it until the power goes out. So, what is energy, and how can we produce and use it more efficiently?
For nearly two centuries, fossil fuels have fed our growing appetite for energy. But they won’t last forever. So, what alternatives do we have to these limited resources?
Storing & Moving Energy
Renewable technologies provide promising solutions to rising energy demand, but it can be challenging to move electricity where it needs to be, when it needs to be there.
