CapabilitiesNew Strategic Infrastructure Several projects completed in FY 2012 add to an irreplaceable array of capabilities that work toward achieving the strategic infrastructure outlined in INLs Ten-Year Site Plan. The full complement of capabilities enables INL to respond to todays nuclear energy challenges serve as a multiprogram laboratory with broad competencies in the energy and security sectors and address the challenges ahead. Research and Education Laboratory Construction started last year on the 148000-square-foot Research and Education Laboratory above left which will co-locate DOE program space with user facilities and serve as the gateway to the Advanced Test Reactor National Scientific User Facility based at INL. A public multiuse auditorium with a 300-seat space will enable increased access by visiting scientists and the public to INL events symposia and conferences of greater size and scope than current INL facilities allow. Energy Systems Laboratory INL researchers are currently moving into the new 91000-square-foot Energy Systems Laboratory ESL above right. This state-of-the-art research facility will support key DOE advanced energy programs and projects. The facility will enable expansion of INLs grid-interface energy storage capability an important area for all future electrical generation options. The ESL provides a national capability to help DOE address strategic bioenergy and energy storage objectives. 20 The Research and Education Laboratory will serve as the gateway to the Adanced Test Reactor National Scientific User Facility.
