Ep. 61 – Discussion with Bill Farris of the National Renewable Energy Lab
Today we had the pleasure of hosting Bill Farris, Associate Laboratory Director for Innovation, Partnering, and Outreach at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). In his role, Bill focuses on the NREL's partnership activity and accelerating commercialization and the transfer of laboratory technologies to the marketplace. He's worked on some pretty fascinating projects and we had a great time learning more about the NREL and their programs.
The NREL is headquartered in Golden, Colorado. Bill took us through a presentation covering background on the lab, why they exist and their role between research and partnering with industry, government, and non-profits. Their work reduces the risk of bringing innovations to market by bridging the gap between innovative ideas and production. We learned a lot and encourage you to visit the NREL the next time you find yourself in the Denver area!
We kicked of the session with our usual COBT crew: Mike Bradley touched on OPEC+, earnings chatter, and gave a preview of oil major earnings this week. Matt Portillo continued the earnings discussion with a preview of upstream earnings and provided a gas market update. Colton Bean also joined today's session and gave an update on a few recent TPH Research coverage initiations in renewable power. Last but certainly not least, Colin Fenton shared four examples of the quest for the radical middle from news and recent events this week.
We could have continued the discussion with Bill for much longer and want to thank him for joining. We hope you enjoy!
