One of this
lab's goals is to conduct research that integrates daylighting
with the building's envelope and lighting systems. See

Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) located in Morgantown,
West Virginia, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Tulsa, Oklahoma,
is a multi-purpose laboratory, owned and operated by the
U.S. Department of Energy. It conducts and implements
science and technology development programs for the DOE
and energy-related environmental systems.
Lab's current focus is on the development of lightweight
autos, "smart" buildings, and researching a
variety of energy-related technologies. In addition, PNL
has an Economic Development Office which may be of assistance
in matching your capital campaign goals with prospective
partners/sponsors for more information go to the PHL website.
A partner in
the National Center for Photvoltaics and funded by DOE's
Office of Solar Energy Technologies. Responsible for creating
and distributing a variety of publications on photovoltaics
systems and their applications. Most of the publications
in their impressive library are available for free. For
a complete list, fax them a request. Website links to
gov't agencies devoted to solar energy and members of
the commercial PV industry. Another terrific resource
is SUN_LAB, a collaborative effort between Sandia and
NREL to use virtual technology to assist industry in developing
and commercializing solar power.
