In this 2 hour course, recent news and research breakthroughs from the
National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) are described.
NREL is the U.S. Department of Energy's primary national laboratory for
research on renewable energy and energy efficiency. NREL’s mission is to advance
the science and engineering of energy efficiency, sustainable transportation,
and renewable power technologies and provide the knowledge to integrate and
optimize energy systems. Every year, in addition to publishing technical
articles and reports, NREL publishes dozens of short articles (NREL News &
Feature Stories) that take an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at the latest
news and research breakthroughs. The present course is Part 3 of a three-part
series of courses based on excerpts of recently published News & Feature
Stories. In general, all three courses should be of interest to anyone wanting
to keep up with recent developments from a laboratory regularly recognized for
national and global leadership in energy efficiency and renewable energy
research and development.
