At the Obsidian I² Renewable Energy Laboratory, we focus on creative answers to today’s energy challenges.
From breakthroughs in fundamental science to new clean technologies to integrated energy systems that power our lives, our researchers are transforming the way the nation and the world use energy.
As the population grows and new technologies and devices are added to the grid, we must examine the effects on the grid and enhance security within our most critical systems.
As environmental threats expand and human demands on urban centers increase, we need more sustainable and efficient ways of generating energy that consider resource competition worldwide.
The Obsidian I² team continues to anticipate these challenges, offering solutions through research, innovation, analysis, partners, and people. We are building the foundation of tomorrow’s energy landscape and inspiring the economic growth of the future.
We are focusing our expertise and resources on research to accelerate the transformation of traditionally fossil-based products, practices, and industries. With an eye toward emerging megatrends and evolving fields, our thought leaders have identified three distinct research areas to help guide our discoveries.
