Argonne National Laboratory

Argonne OutLoud public lecture series: "Energy Slam" (4/3/14)

373 views 1 week ago
On April 3, 2104, Argonne National Laboratory hosted its first-ever "Energy Slam." Four Argonne researchers each presented for 10 minutes on a different energy source — solar, wind, nuclear and biofuels. At the end of the presentations, the audience voted via applause on which of the four made the best case for his/her energy source and earned the title of Energy Slam Champion.

Niala Boodhoo, host of WBEZ Radio Chicago's "The Afternoon Shift," served as guest emcee. The lineup was as follows: Seth Darling (solar), a nanoscientist who focuses on solar energy conversion; Guenter Conzelmann (wind), head of Argonne's Wind Power Technologies and Analysis Program; J'Tia Taylor (nuclear), nuclear engineer; and Jennifer Dunn (biofuels), head of Argonne's Biofuel Life Cycle Analysis Team.

Mission Driven Science, Research and Development Play

The best and brightest minds come to Argonne to make scientific discoveries and technological innovations that improve the quality of life throughout the nation and the world.

Argonne conducts fundamental research to understand, predict, and ultimately control matter and energy at the electronic, atomic, and molecular levels in order to provide the foundations for new energy technologies and to support the nation's missions in energy, environment, and national security. Our world-class basic and applied scientific capabilities touch virtually every aspect of energy resources, production, conversion, transmission, storage, efficiency, and waste mitigation.

Energy Play

Argonne is poised to help our nation build an economy that is based on renewable energy and free from dependence on foreign oil, while reducing our carbon footprint. Adopting renewable energy on a grand scale requires next-generation technologies born out of real breakthroughs in materials, chemistry and engineering.

To achieve this goal, our scientists and engineers are advancing the basic energy sciences, focusing their research and development on a broad portfolio of sustainable and clean energy technologies. Innovations in transportation, energy storage and alternative energy sources—including nuclear, solar, and biofuels—are all critical to reshaping America's future.
