U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory Key Developments

National Renewable Energy Laboratory Appoints Martin Keller as Director

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory has a new director: Martin Keller, who will join the federal laboratory on Nov. 30, 2015. Keller will also serve as the president of the Alliance for Sustainable Energy, the entity that manages the laboratory via a contract with the U.S. Department of Energy. Martin succeeds Dan Arvizu, who announced plans in March to retire from the lab after more than 10 years as its director. Keller hails from a sister DOE laboratory in Tennessee, the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where he served as the associate laboratory director for energy and environmental sciences, according to the announcement from NREL. That division includes the Oak Ridge's programs in biosciences, environmental sciences, buildings technologies, transportation, climate change, manufacturing and electrical and electronics systems.

National Renewable Energy Laboratory Cuts Jobs

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) laid off 15 solar power researchers and more staff reductions are expected due to smaller budgets approved by Congress. In addition to the layoffs, NREL officials are hoping that between 50 and 60 people will accept voluntary buyouts, further reducing the federal laboratory's overhead costs. The buyouts are targeting departments considered to be "support" to the lab's researchers, such as public affairs, business administration and other back-office departments. The lab has 1,600 employees in Colorado, making the cuts less than 5% of its existing staff. The reason for the cuts is two-fold, but ultimately boils down to less money being appropriated by Congress for the DOE for the lab. The layoffs are due to the amount of money earmarked for solar power research dropping 19% during the last three federal fiscal years, from $288.9 million in fiscal 2012 to $233 million in fiscal 2015.

Clemson University and U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory Cooperative Research and Development Agreement

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Clemson University in the U.S. will work to improve the performance of wind turbine drive trains under a cooperative research and development agreement. The joint effort also aims to better understand how to integrate turbines with the electrical grid more effectively. The partners will share resources and capabilities in the operation and development of testing facilities.
