Clean Energy


Renewable Energy Systems

Develop methods and models, conduct analyses and produce tools that address the potential and sustainability of biomass production and processing as an energy source.

A diverse team of social and natural scientists at ORNL provides cross-disciplinary research and analysis on key issues at the intersection of science, technology, society and policy. We develop methods, models and tools to address these issues and inform policy decision-making. Research focused on exploring the interface of environmental, social and economic sustainability in a spatially explicit context is essential to understanding the impacts of renewable energy systems.
