Energy Research and Development

Shaping and securing our energy future

Having reliable, clean, and affordable energy sources is central to ensuring a strong economy, a healthy environment, and a secure nation.

In collaborations that combine our expertise with that of industry, academia and other government laboratories, our scientists and engineers deliver research tools and solutions that enable access to affordable, environmentally clean energy, and reduce our dependence on foreign energy sources.

Theme IV: Intertwined Order

We investigate a variety of emergent phenomena that are associated with the simultaneous presence of competing or co-operating short-range ordering motifs in the spin, charge, and lattice degrees of freedom.
