4 Overview - It’s All About the Science! Single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States (Budget ~$5 billion) Office of Science (SC) manages and supports basic science research programs in:  Advanced Scientific Computing Research  Basic Energy Sciences (including materials sciences, chemistry, physical biosciences, and geosciences)  Biological and Environmental Research (including genomics-based systems biology for energy & environment, climate science, and subsurface science for DOE legacy sites)  Fusion Energy Sciences  High Energy Physics  Nuclear Physics 4

5 It’s All About the Science! From FY 2012 Office of Science request to Congress: Applications of 21 st century science to long-standing barriers in energy technologies: employing nanotechnology, biotechnology, and modeling and simulation, for example: Materials by design using nanoscale structures and syntheses for: carbon capture; radiation-resistant and self-healing materials for the nuclear reactor industry; highly efficient photovoltaics; and white- light emitting LEDs. Biosystems by design combining the development of new molecular toolkits with testbeds for the design and construction of improved biological components or new biohybrid systems and processes for improved biofuels and bioproducts. Modeling and simulation to facilitate materials and chemistry by design and to address technology challenges such as the optimization of internal combustion engines using advanced transportation fuels (biofuels). 5

6 SC Stewards 10 out of 17 DOE National Laboratories 6 All SC sites have enduring missions

7 Infrastructure Investments Assure Mission Readiness Annual Laboratory Planning allows the programs to ensure current initiatives are addressed and infrastructure plans are prioritized to best support mission needs. Mission readiness is built on a combination of laboratory and DOE investment. The laboratories are doing their part, increasing their investments in mission readiness through Institutional General Plant Projects (IGPP) and maintenance. Laboratories can be held accountable for delivering mission readiness through our performance evaluation processes. Laboratory Infrastructure Investment* ($000) *Data derived from FY 2010 Annual Laboratory Plans 7

8 Mission Readiness Assessment Process Mission Readiness: The capability of facilities and infrastructure to enable delivery of the scientific mission assigned to the laboratory. Process used in concert with the SC Annual Laboratory Plans to plan for and evaluate the success of our Facilities and Infrastructure program. Integration between scientific and facilities staff is key. Process provides a framework for assessing capabilities and results in capability improvement action plans that describe needed investments. Peer reviews of each laboratory’s Mission Readiness protocols began in FY 2009; seven labs have been completed (ORNL, BNL, LBNL, PNNL, ANL, PPPL, and TJNAF); three more reviews will be conducted in FY 2011 (SLAC, FNAL, and Ames). 8

9 Current SC Laboratory Infrastructure Ten research laboratories with over 1,500 buildings and 20 million square feet of space. Much of our infrastructure is old, expensive to maintain, and can no longer meet the requirements of a modern research facility. Improvements have been made – increased annual maintenance investment, focus on reducing deferred maintenance. Typical Aging Lab Particulates Fire sprinklers Process water Inadequate HVAC controls Flammable insulation Maintenance alone will not ensure our laboratories can continue to fulfill their missions. An integrated approach is needed, including –Capital Investment –Elimination of Excess Facilities –Maintenance 9

10 Science Laboratories Infrastructure (SLI) Modernization Initiative In 2007, all of the SC site offices and laboratories participated in an effort led by the Deputy Director for Field Operations to develop an initial baseline for the Initiative. At the conclusion of this effort, the Infrastructure Modernization Initiative included over 30 projects totaling more than $2 billion. The mechanism for proposing a change is via the Annual Lab Plans. 10

11 Infrastructure Modernization Planning Baseline Note: Baseline is reviewed and updated each year to reflect Annual Lab Plans and new budget assumptions.11

12 SLI General Accomplishments Sixteen active projects with cost >$20M  Seven projects are in construction.  One project start proposed in FY 2012 request.  Two projects at CD-1 awaiting design funds.  Seven projects at CD-0 in early planning. Last fiscal year (FY 2010)  14 successful Lehman Reviews.  13 CD approvals by the SC Acquisition Board.  7 baseline milestones met (100%). Cost and schedule indices all favorable (GREEN) Examples of success  The Physical Sciences Facility project at PNNL achieved CD-4B with start up of Building 325 in January  The Modernization of Laboratory Facilities project at ORNL is forecasting completion 7 months ahead of the baseline milestone. $108.5M of Recovery Act funds on line item projects  As of June 30, 2011: 100% of funds have been committed to subcontracts, and 85% costed. 12 TED Building (TJNAF) Exterior const. at Seismic 2 (LBNL) Low Vibration Lab in ISB-1 (BNL)

13  SLI projects are all being designed to perform 30% better than ASHRAE  SLI projects (except utility projects) will achieve LEED Gold certification (implies energy savings).  The renovation projects can achieve a 28% reduction in GHG with a combination of best practices and some upgraded system choices.  The new buildings expand the capability of Science and require energy intensive systems for clean rooms, super computer capabilities, increased air changes (for safety) and other end uses.  The new buildings are more energy efficient than a new base building (per ASHRAE 90.1).  The new building system designs may require an investment in renewable energy sources on or near the building in order to meet the GHG reduction goals while still providing world-class Science.  Other companion projects, not included in the line item, can provide GHG reduction if properly implemented (e.g. cool roofs, adjacency to renewable energy sources). Sustainability 13

14 The SC Sustainability Challenge 14

15 SC Sustainability Baseline Conduct webinar in June or early July with a working-level group to roll out portfolio analysis “tool”. Meeting will include sustainability managers from site offices and laboratories. Schedule workshop in late July or early August:  To be informed by Annual Laboratory Plans, SSPs, DOE SSPP, SC Staff and Laboratory leadership input.  To result in development of baseline with recommended actions to address sustainability gaps and distribution of portfolio goals. Results of these meetings (baseline and SC portfolio approach) will then be presented to SC leadership. 15

16 Disposition of SC Excess Facilities Completing site cleanup is key to SC modernization SC-Funded Dispositions  ~1.3M Sq. Ft. FY 2002 – 2010  One for one offset for new construction Transfers to EM  SC has ~1.2M Sq. Ft. of process-contaminated facilities  EM has agreed to accept nearly $1B of the cleanup scope at ANL, BNL, LBNL, ORNL and SLAC.  EM is funding ~$100M of the cleanup scope with ARRA funds.  No additional EM funding expected till at least FY  SC pays ~$15M annually in surveillance and maintenance costs in the meantime. 16

25 Summary It’s all about the SCIENCE! The Infrastructure Modernization Initiative is vital to the SC strategic science mission goals. Mission Readiness ties facilities investments to the SC mission and is being fully integrated with Annual Lab Planning. Sustainability is integrated into our designs and management processes. End result: modern, safe, and sustainable infrastructure that allows the laboratories to ensure their scientific leadership well into the future. 25
