Colorado is Leading the Way in Keeping America’s Energy Efficiency Robust and Innovative
The Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is a facility dedicated to the research, development, commercialization, and deployment of renewable energy and energy efficient technologies. NREL is working with the U.S. Government to produce more clean energy and use it more efficiently, while also supporting America’s domestic manufacturing base and economic growth.
Working with colleges and universities, composites companies, and National Laboratories, the NREL are developing advanced composites manufacturing for turbine components, including blades, hubs, and nacelles.
NREL’s research and development is allowing the private sector to innovate and apply this technology commercially, while maintaining economic competitiveness here in America. Their work is leading to job creation and lower energy costs, and increase energy reliability for Americans as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Department of Energy has provided over $2 billion in funding to private and public sector partners in the state of Colorado, who play a key role in America’s national energy strategy. The work done at NREL is crucial for our nation’s energy economy and for ensuring energy efficiency and reliability.
