Working with Us
NREL offers industry, academia, and other government agencies opportunities to work with us and leverage our research expertise.
Our technology partnership agreements help you gain access to our capabilities and facilities. There are several ways for your organization to get involved with us:
Work collaboratively with NREL through Cooperative Research and Development Agreements— the most widely used means of industrial collaboration.
Pay NREL to conduct research without your collaboration through Work for Others Research—an effective way for industry to use NREL's expertise.
Commercialize NREL-developed energy technologies and products through our licensing agreements.
Partner with NREL to use the lab's state-of-the-art research facilities.
Please contact Henry "Bud" Johnston, 303-275-4999, if you would like to explore collaborative research opportunities.
