Energy Efficient Buildings on NREL Campus to be Celebrated on June 4
Monday, June 2, 2014
The Energy Department’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has recently completed construction of several award-winning, energy efficient buildings on its campus in Golden, Colo. On June 4, leaders from NREL and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) will recognize and celebrate NREL’s three latest LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum buildings – the Energy Systems Integration Facility, the NREL Café and the South Site Entrance Building – with a USGBC Plaque Ceremony. The Platinum certification is the highest level available in the USGBC’s LEED® certification program.
The ceremony will be followed by a workshop, which will feature NREL, USGBC and other project partners describing their experiences and giving recommendations so that these projects can serve as models for others. The workshop will provide an opportunity for building owners, developers and other industry professionals to learn how they can benefit from incorporating energy efficiency into their construction.
The event will conclude with a walking tour of NREL’s sustainable campus and energy efficient buildings.
Media are invited to attend any or all portions of the event, please allow time for security check-in. The ceremony will begin at 8 a.m. and the event will conclude by noon.
