NREL's economic benefit to Colorado totals $814.8 million in FY 2012

world to Denver from May 12 to 17. The NREL-sponsored Industrial Growth Forum drew 425 clean-tech entrepreneurs and venture capitalists to Denver. Since 2003, attendees at NREL's annual Industrial Growth Forum have raised more than $4 billion in financing. NREL also hosted four school-oriented events including the Science Bowl for high-school students and the Junior Solar Sprint, Hydrogen Fuel Cell, and Lithium Ion Battery car competitions, attended by 390 middle-school students.

The presence of a national laboratory in Colorado and Jefferson County stands for more than just the economic impact from the jobs on the campus. It enriches the education of the students who visit the campus and enhances educational opportunities at schools in the area. While the CU study presents important measures of economic impact, it does not capture the downstream benefits such as technology transfer, commercialization, the creation of new businesses and the spark to imaginations of students who want to work toward a cleaner energy future.
