The Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory conducts
research in the physical, biomedical, and environmental sciences,
as well as in energy technologies. Brookhaven also builds and
operates major facilities available to university, industrial,
and government scientists. The Laboratory is managed by Brookhaven
Science Associates, a corporation founded by Stony Brook University
and Battelle, a nonprofit applied science and technology organization.
Scientists at the US Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory are working as part of a multidisciplinary 'Battery500 Consortium' led by DOE's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) to develop commercially-viable, next-generation batteries for electric vehicles.
The Department of Energy's Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time.
