Steve Hammond, Director, Computational Science Center, National Renewable Energy Laboratory: In my mind, an important role of the labs is to do pathfinding work, and often that’s done in conjunction with industry.

So, working with industry partners to do things that they would like to do. We help them lower the risk and accelerate time to market for leading technologies that benefit the broad community.
