NREL in the Community

NREL takes pride in its world-class research, talented staff, sustainable campus, and results that positively impact our local, national, and global communities. There are many ways for those in our community to discover what we're all about.

During NREL's 40th anniversary celebration, staff and guests donated more than 5,000 school supply items to the Action Center. To complement the school supply donations, NREL gave $5,000 to the Chef Ann Foundation to support healthy school lunch options as part of the NREL Giving "Investing in our Future: Supporting K-12 Education" campaign.
