Sep 18, 2017

In Washington, the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources heard testimony last week about the work of the Department of Energy’s 17 national laboratories, including Los Alamos and Sandia National Labs in New Mexico.

Senator Martin Heinrich, who is a member of the committee, says both labs play critical roles in both national security and development of advanced energy technologies. The Democrat spoke of the need to make it easier for the private sector to engage with national laboratories to commercialize innovative technology.
