Applied Energy Program
SLAC’s Applied Energy Program Division identifies and pursues opportunities where SLAC’s unique set of scientists, engineers and facilities have strong potential for performing energy research that will translate into practical solutions. Many of these research areas are undertaken in partnership with the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL) and the Materials Science Division (SIMES). Over the next several years, the Applied Energy Program will focus on three main areas: materials for energy, subsurface technology and the 21st century electric grid.
