Partnering For Impact


Industry Collaboration

  • Making Progress Toward Global Impact

Increasing Capacity, Improving Efficiency, Reducing Costs, Expanding Investment

  • Renewable energy accounts for 23% of all electricity generation worldwide (4,892 TWh).

  • Renewable electricity accounted for 56% of all new electrical capacity installations in the U.S.

  • U.S. clean energy investment reached more than $27B annually in 2012

  • Wind power accounted for about 75% of newly installed U.S. renewable electricity capacity in 2012

  • Solar PV capacity in the U.S. grew more than 83% from 2011 to 2012

  • Cumulative global renewable electricity installed capacity has grown by 97% from 2000 to 2012 (from 748 GW to 1,470 GW)

NREL Innovation for the Future

  • Integrating/Upgrading Energy Systems

  • Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF)

  • Integrating renewable energy at all scales

Advancing DOE’s SunShot Solar Initiative

  • Reduce the cost of solar energy systems to 6 cents per kWh by 2020.

  • Cost competitive without subsidies to enable large-scale adoption across the US

Achieving Scientific Breakthroughs

  • Multi-Exciton Generation – potentially improving photovoltaic solar efficiency by 30%

  • Advanced Biofuels – Turning plants into fuels compatible with existing infrastructure

NREL’s Energy Vision

  • A clean, resilient and reliable energy system contributing to economic prosperity, enhancing national security, and maintaining environmental quality

For more than 35 years, NREL has delivered innovation impact enabling the emergence of the U.S. clean energy industry.
