National Renewable Energy Laboratory Tour

Smart Commercial Buildings will feature an exclusive tour of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. NREL focuses on creative answers to today’s energy challenges. From breakthroughs in fundamental science to new clean technologies to integrated energy systems that power our lives, NREL researchers are transforming the way the nation and the world use energy. Take the opportunity to participate the exclusive tour of the Research Support Facility (RSF), and the Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF).

The Research Support Facility (RSF) is the nation’s largest ultra-energy efficient building and a prototype for the commercial building industry. The RSF is designed to use 50% less energy than conventional office space built to code at a comparable cost. Design features include passive energy strategies and renewable energy technologies. The Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF) is central to the future of NREL and the nation. It will resolve issues associated with transforming the electrical grid and adding new renewable energy generation systems, reducing the risks of new technology adoption. NREL is a closed site, advanced registration for the tour is required.
