Research Labs

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBL) One of this lab's goals is to conduct research that integrates daylighting with the building's envelope and lighting systems. See Tips for Daylighting with Windows /CoolRoofs/: LBL Heat Island Group: has developed the Solar Reflectivity Index (SRI), a measure of how well a material rejects solar heat.
National Energy Technology Laboratory The National 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.
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNL)

(509) 372-4799

This 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.
Sandia National Laboratory 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.
