September APICS NoCo Tour at NREL


APICS NOCO visited the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) this October. With so much room to cover and a limited amount of time, our tour guide Jim Bosch gave us a whirlwind tour of almost the entire facility.


Through government and company investments they fund research that is taking renewable energy to the next level. They had labs end to end, all doing different research projects from hydrogen powered cars to the most efficient solar panels on the planet.


Through the power of a massive super computer, they are able to generate 'what if' scenarios for all sorts of different applications. They were studying how wind traveled through wind turbines in 3D while we were there.


It was a mind blowing tour of NREL followed by some celebratory wings and beers at the local Rock Rest Lounge.
