The rest of the tour consisted of looking down into a number of laboratories from viewing areas on the floor above. We saw vehicles, generators, batteries, light bulbs, and appliances. These labs have already produced more than 800 patented or patent-pending technologies and they continue to conduct research and development in thirteen different programs.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory "advances the science and engineering of energy efficiency, sustainable transportation, and renewable power technologies and provides the knowledge to integrate and optimize energy systems." We applaud the work they are doing and are grateful for the opportunity to visit the NREL site and see their innovation for ourselves.
