NREL's energy systems integration (ESI) research spans technologies, laboratories, and scales. Learn more about our work through these highlights.
An automated robot in the Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF) mimics fueling action to test hydrogen hoses for durability in real-world conditions.
NREL transmission researchers have explored how wind power can support power system reliability—and do so economically.
At the ESIF, integrated, megawatt-scale power hardware-in-the-loop capability allows researchers and manufacturers to test new energy technologies at full power in real-time simulations.
