Special Seminar: "Research at the National Renewable Energy Laboratories (NREL) to Enable a Decarbonized Economy by 2050"Friday, March 5, 2021 - 12:00pm
The United States Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) conducts advanced scientific research that is transforming energy. Three initiatives are pivotal to our strategy at NREL and drive most of our research: Integrated Energy Pathways, Electrons to Molecules, and Circular Economy for Energy Materials. To formulate our strategy, leaders at NREL deliberated upon the following assumptions:
Growth of energy use in the developing world will far outpace growth elsewhere.
Global renewable power demand will grow.
