NREL News Releases
News releases issued by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).

  • NREL’s Work for the U.S. Navy Illuminates Energy and Cost Savings
    Field demonstrations of newly proven energy efficient technologies are yielding valuable results for the U.S. Navy, helping it meet energy goals. In partnership with the Energy Department’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) recently demonstrated eight technologies at installations in Hawaii and Guam, and the initial results have encouraged the Navy to move forward with broader implementation of several of the energy efficiency technologies.

  • Energy Systems Integration Facility Named Lab of the Year
    The editors of R&D Magazine have named the Energy Department’s Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF) as the 2014 Laboratory of the Year. Located on the campus of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colo., research at ESIF transforms how the nation generates, delivers and uses energy by modernizing the interplay between energy sources, infrastructure, and data.

  • Fairview High School Wins 24th Colorado Science Bowl
    Students from Boulder’s Fairview High School beat out 47 other teams to win today’s Colorado Science Bowl. They will represent Colorado at the Energy Department’s (DOE) National Science Bowl in Washington, D.C., April 24-28, where they will compete against more than 400 students from 70 high schools for the national title.

  • Students from 48 Colorado High Schools to Compete in Colorado Science Bowl
    On March 1, hundreds of Colorado high school students will be racking their brains to quickly find answers to rapid-fire questions at the 24th Colorado Science Bowl from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at Dakota Ridge High School, 13399 W. Coal Mine Ave., Littleton. Forty-eight teams will face off as scientists and volunteers from the Energy Department’s (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) quiz them with science and math questions. The winning team advances to DOE’s National Science Bowl in Washington, D.C. April 24-28, where more than 400 students from 70 high schools will compete for the national title.

  • NREL Examines Solar Policy Pathways for States
    The Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has published a report that aligns solar policy and market success with state demographics. By organizing the 48 contiguous states into four peer groups based on shared non-policy characteristics, the NREL research team was able to contextualize the impact of various solar policies on photovoltaic (PV) installations.

  • JISEA News: Study on Methane Emissions from Natural Gas Systems Indicates New Priorities
    A new study published in the journal Science says that the total impact of switching to natural gas depends heavily on leakage of methane (CH4) during the natural gas life cycle, and suggests that more can be done to reduce methane emissions and to improve measurement tools which help inform policy choices.

  • NREL Scientist Named AAAS Fellow
    David S. Ginley, a materials scientist at the Energy Department’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory, has been named a fellow of the American Academy for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), an honor accorded to at most 1 percent of the prestigious scientific society’s membership each year.

  • NREL Report Finds Similar Value in Two CSP Technologies
    Parabolic troughs and dry-cooled towers deliver similar value for concentrating solar power (CSP) plants, despite different solar profiles, a new report by the Energy Department’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory has found.
