Additionally, tours were offered including NREL’s LEED Platinum office and lab buildings, the NREL Energy Systems Integration Facility, the National Wind Technology Center, the NREL Process Development and Integration Laboratory, and the NREL Integrated Biorefinery Research Facility.

While Heather attended these courses and tours, she was able to bring back further benefit to Allen & Shariff through the ability to download these courses for our company’s review. Finally, as an alumni of the program, she will be able to use NREL as a resource on future projects we encounter at ASE that require complicated renewable energy design.
