Energetics Publishes Six Draft Energy Bandwidth Studies on Manufacturing Lightweight Structural Materials

Energetics has had longstanding expertise in the preparation of Energy Bandwidth Studies, which examine the range (or bandwidth) of potential energy savings opportunities in selected manufacturing industries. In collaboration with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO), Energetics recently added six new energy bandwidth studies to the series. The new studies explore energy consumption in the manufacture of six lightweight structural materials: aluminum, advanced high-strength steel, magnesium, titanium, carbon fiber reinforced polymer composites, and glass fiber reinforced polymer composites.

Energetics Volunteers Help Clean Up Patapsco Valley State Park

Twelve Energetics employees participated in a recent company-sponsored stream clean up event at Patapsco Valley State Park, just south of Baltimore. The team collected 740 pounds of trash—including tires, shoes, diapers, steel girders, and more—during the October 12 event organized by Patapsco Heritage Greenway, Inc. These efforts will help protect the Patapsco River watershed, which flows into the Chesapeake Bay.

Besides typical trash such as bottles, cans, food wrappers, and plastic bags, the team collected a corroded water heater, clothes, phone cords, toys, an old boat, a car bumper, a complete birthday party set for a child’s fourth birthday, frying pans, books, and half a boogie board. Natural items found included two snakes, lots of ants, spiders, bees, a Great Blue Heron, beaver, poison ivy, phlox, crayfish, a dead mouse, and an entire articulated deer skeleton.

Energetics offers full-time employees 8 hours of community service time per year, which they can use to participate in volunteer activities during the work week.

Energetics Contributes Expertise, Insight to U.S. DOE Quadrennial Technology Review

The 2015 U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Quadrennial Technology Review: An Assessment of Energy Technologies and Research Opportunities examines the most promising research, development, demonstration, and deployment (RDD&D) opportunities across energy supply and end use to effectively address the nation's energy needs and work toward a clean energy economy. The report was released in late September by U.S. Energy Secretary Moniz and John P. Holdren, Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and Co-Chair of the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology. 

Drawing on our firm’s deep expertise with energy science, technology, analysis, and R&D, Energetics provided extensive support for the development of the DOE Quadrennial Technology Review. Nine Energetics staff members—five coauthors and four additional contributors—provided direct, expert input to chapters on the following topics:

  • Enabling modernization of the electric power system
  • Innovating clean energy technologies in advanced manufacturing
  • Advancing clean transportation and vehicle systems and technologies 
  • Advancing clean electric power technologies

In addition, many staff contributed innovative, supporting analysis found throughout the report, including industry energy bandwidth studies and manufacturing energy Sankey diagrams that Energetics produced for the DOE Advanced Manufacturing Office.  

The Quadrennial Technology Review complements the work of the Quadrennial Energy Review, which focuses on energy infrastructure and government-wide energy policy. Energetics provided vital support throughout the development of the Quadrennial Energy Review, working with DOE to obtain stakeholder input, facilitate all of the public meetings, and analyze all public comments. Energetics also helped write and edit several white papers that provided input into the document. 

The analyses in these two reports provide important insights and information for stakeholders and decision-makers in government, industry, academia, and civil society who together form our national energy enterprise.
