The United States Department of Energy (DOE) announced Princeton University will continue to manage and operate the DOE’s Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL), located on Princeton University’s Forrestal Campus within Princeton Forrestal Center. The extended contract, which runs through March 31, 2022, also highlights collaborations among the University, the lab and the DOE. PPPL is devoted to creating new knowledge about the physics of plasmas — charged gases — and to developing practical solutions for the creation of fusion energy. Princeton University has had the honor of being the PPPL contractor since its inception in 1951, when it was called Project Matterhorn and is one of 10 national science laboratories overseen by DOE’s Office of Science. As part of the agreement, Princeton University extended the lease on the land PPPL occupies for another 30 years with a one-time payment of $1 for as long as Princeton University remains the laboratory’s management and operations contractor.

AT PRINCETON FORRESTAL CENTER

Siemens Corporate Technology is undertaking a Renewable Technologies Project at their North American headquarters. The goal of the initiative is to demonstrate Siemens Distributed Energy Systems (DES) product offerings and capabilities that can support research activities and cost savings through on-site renewable energy generation. The unique aspect of this project is the dual flow (DC/AC) technology which allows peak shaving through use of batteries and the potential for a building to be net zero. When completed later this year the site will also include an 838.35 KW solar carport system and several Siemens VersiCharge™ Smartgrid (SG) Wi-Fi enabled electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. The current site renovations follow the recent multi-million dollar building upgrades that expanded and modernized the site's world-class research & development facility. Interiors were transformed to Siemens New Way of Working (NewWow) workspace, including the construction of new state-of-the-art labs that allow hundreds of research scientists, consultants and software engineers to develop high-impact innovations and deliver technological solutions to the global family of Siemens' businesses.
