The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), along with industry partner CLEAResult, is seeking crowdsourced ideas for residential energy efficiency applications for smartphones as part of the DOE JUMP initiative.
A supercomputer created by Hewlett-Packard (HP) and the U.S Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) that uses warm water to cool its servers, and then re-uses that water to heat its building, has been honored as one of the top technological innovations of the year by R&D Magazine.
NREL Identified Advanced Plug Load Controls and Whole-Building Energy Efficiency Retrofits as Good Investments
October 6, 2014
Field demonstrations of newly proven energy efficiency technologies are yielding valuable results for the U.S. Navy, helping it meet energy goals. The initial results have encouraged the Navy to move forward with broader implementation of several of the energy efficiency technologies.
Performance Data Provides Apples-to-Apples Comparisons of Products

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has developed a web-based tool to help commercial building engineers and designers better understand the energy performance of building-related products, including HVAC.
Reports Provide a Comprehensive Look at the Full Cost of Installing Solar
December 12, 2013
Two reports from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) find that non-hardware costs for solar — often referred to as soft costs — now comprise up to 64 percent of the total price of residential solar energy systems.
Software Package Developed by NREL in Partnership with concept3D
December 9, 2013
An energy audit tool that more accurately pinpoints potential energy savings while potentially costing 35 percent to 75 percent less than traditional audits is set to hit the multi-billion-dollar energy retrofit industry next year.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is seeking information from organizations and/or coalitions of organizations that are using, or would like to use, the Guidelines for Home Energy Professionals project.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has selected HP and Intel to provide a new energy-efficient high performance computer (HPC) system. NREL’s new HPC data center is designed to be the world’s most energy efficient.
Hospitals use a lot of energy to save lives. To find ways to cut the energy intensity of large hospitals as well as schools and retail buildings by half, DOE’s Commercial Buildings Program and its National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) are working together with ASHRAE and other members of the building industry.
