Technology innovations to secure the nation’s energy and environmental needs.

The Laboratory for Energy Applications for the Future (LEAF) is a multidisciplinary center that develops disruptive technologies for the grid, transportation, and the environment from inception to demonstration.

LEAF accelerates the development of scalable, optimized structures at the intersection of porous materials, mass transport, and chemical reaction for energy applications, such as batteries, capacitors, desalination, and carbon conversion, by coordinating the fundamental research in those areas at LLNL.

We invite you to explore this site to learn more about our technology, capabilities, and areas of expertise.
