National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL)

National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado, and Wells Fargo receive the 2015 Mid-Continent Regional Partnership Award.

Their partnership is a unique approach to commercializing new sustainable technologies by validating them in the lab and then piloting them in select Wells Fargo locations. Last year, the partners unveiled a $10 million, five-year agreement that launched a novel buildings-related technology transfer initiative, the new Innovation Incubator (IN2). The groundbreaking partnership offers a unique path toward reducing a building footprint and managing energy use and costs.
