Research and Development

Energy systems integration optimizes the design and performance of electrical, thermal, and fuel systems at different but interrelated scales, ranging from individual homes and businesses to communities and cities to regional and national infrastructures. At NREL, our approach builds on research in the integration of complex systems of systems to design energy systems that are optimized at smaller levels and can be aggregated to optimize energy pathways at any scale.
