Active stewardship: sustainable future

What if you could power your life using pond scum? Los Alamos researchers are creating many innovations to support a sustainable future.

Energy sustainability is a daunting task: How do we develop top-notch innovations with some of the world’s most powerful technology without consuming excessive energy or creating waste?

Focused on the future: creating sustainable energy solutions while protecting the environment

For more than 70 years, we’ve been creating tomorrow. Some of the world’s smartest and most dedicated technical people have accomplished the difficult, the unexpected, and what sometimes seems impossible at Los Alamos.

Energy sustainability is a daunting task: How do we develop top-notch innovations with some the world’s most powerful technology without consuming excessive energy or creating waste?

In 1943 we were focused on the present: creating the impossible to end a world war. We did it.

Now we are much more focused on the future, committed to act as stewards of our environment while also creating sustainable energy solutions for the nation.

We now have the scientific and technical prowess to protect the surrounding environment and make sustainable choices for decades to come.

And that is not all we're doing

Our science, research and technologies also show our commitment to energy sustainability. Explore a few of the ways we’re helping humanity reduce its footprint:
