Use it, lose it, save it

LOS ALAMOS, New Mexico, August 21, 2008—The science of renewable energy storage and how nanotechnology can benefit that science is the subject of Los Alamos National Laboratory’s next Frontiers in Science Lecture beginning August 26 in Los Alamos.

Albert Migliori of the Laboratory’s National High Magnetic Field Lab will give the series of public talks, titled, “Use It, Lose It, or Save It: The Science of Renewable Energy Storage.”

“The science will take time to mature, but with legislative and economic shelters to nurture it, scientists and engineers can develop better ways to store electrical energy,” Migliori said.

The lectures begin at 7 p.m. and are free of charge.

Lectures are scheduled at the following dates and locations:

  • August 26, Duane W. Smith Auditorium, Los Alamos High School, Los Alamos
  • August 28, James A. Little Theater, New Mexico School for the Deaf, 1060 Cerrillos Road, Santa Fe
  • September 2, New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, 1801 Mountain Road N.W., Albuquerque
  • September 4, Nick L. Salazar Center for the Arts, Northern New Mexico College, 921 Paseo de Oñate, Española.

The Frontiers of Science lecture series is sponsored by the Fellows of the Laboratory. Frontiers in Science lectures are intended to increase local public awareness of the diversity of science and engineering research at the Laboratory.
