NREL is the only federal laboratory dedicated to the research, development, commercialization and deployment of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies. “The development of green power is consistent with NREL’s mission and strategy to demonstrate leadership by reducing operational impacts on the community and environment surrounding our campuses” Frank Rukavina, NREL’s Director of Sustainability. NREL continuously looks for ways to reduce emissions and mitigate emissions that cannot be avoided. By purchasing green power to offset our greenhouse gas emissions and deploying renewable technologies on-site, NREL has achieved our goal of Scope 2 carbon neutrality each year since 2009.
