With concerns that energy use will rapidly increase over the next several years while fossil fuels diminish, Sandia National Laboratories is looking at a new way to meet growing energy challenges — energy surety.
“We have taken our surety know-how and applied it to energy,” said Rush Robinett, senior manager of Sandia’s Energy and Infrastructure Futures Group. “By doing this we are looking at what energy practices can best answer our current needs while not making compromises for future generations.”
