National Renewable Energy Lab, Golden, Colorado

I started volunteering last Fall at the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) in Golden, Colorado. My role is to teach the "mission of the Lab" with many other "seasoned" volunteers at the NREL Visitor Center. The mission of the lab is to research the benefits and solutions of the use of alternative energy sources and applications. 
Our future...learning at the Visitor Center

I work with other volunteers that have many backgrounds. They are former employees of NREL, students in higher education, former energy professionals, consultants, education experts, and a variety of other interests. The brain trust at the Lab is amazing. I encourage you to visit the webiste: http://www.nrel.gov/ to see what the Lab is all about. Then schedule a visit with us at the Visitor Center and learn what is up and coming. One of the neatest things happening now is the new construction that is bringing exciting new projects to light.
How many forms of renewable energy can you name?
