The booths will showcase leading-edge technologies that have been helped by DOE’s national labs, applied energy programs, the Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) and other commitments to research and development.Technologies include:
- A 3D-printed Electric Vehicle (EV) Shelby Cobra from Oak Ridge National Laboratory
- A hydropower turbine designed for “low-head” areas like canals, rivers, and other lower-flow areas from Natel Energy
- A 3-D printed model of the Transient Test Reactor, a one-of-a-kind testing facility at the Idaho National Lab that will support advanced reactor development.
- A solar concentrating PVMirror solar system, designed by Arizona State University, which combines photovoltaic (PV) solar system with concentrated solar in one unit.
- A small modular reactor designed by NuScale in Oregon, that demonstrates the advanced nuclear energy technologies being developed to provide clean energy options.
