WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) today announced that a photovoltaic (PV) vehicle created by Sandia National Laboratories has received a 2010 GreenGov Presidential Award.
The awards recognize extraordinary achievement in the pursuit of President Obama’s Executive Order 13514 on Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy and Economic Performance.
The GreenGov Presidential Awards honor exceptional Federal civilian and military personnel, agency teams, agency projects and facilities and agency programs that exemplify President Obama’s charge to lead by example in sustainability.
“Sandia’s effort in recognizing the need to create a more energy-efficient campus is a great example of NNSA’s commitment to ensuring that we are effective stewards of the environment,” said NNSA Administrator Thomas P. D’Agostino. “I applaud the Sandia photovoltaic vehicle team for incorporating technology and solar power to promote energy efficiency.”
The solar-powered vehicle was developed by a cross-functional Sandia team including an Energy Management team and Fleet Services Organization.
The goal of the project was to reduce grid-tied energy use, increase renewable-energy use and implement solutions for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
