New NREL Web Site Helps Campuses Go Green

New NREL Web Site Helps Campuses Go Green

The U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Cornell University have launched a Web site to help campus-based institutions develop clean energy and carbon-reduction strategies.

The Web site, Climate Neutral Research Campuses, is available at http://www.nrel.gov/applying_technologies/climate_neutral/

Research campuses consume more energy per square foot than most facilities. Laboratories and data centers run at all hours, using power-hungry equipment and cooling and ventilation systems to ensure high-quality scientific results and meet health and safety regulations. But they also have greater opportunities to reduce energy consumption, implement renewable energy, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The Sustainable NREL Program institutionalizes sustainability at NREL's Campus of the Future and makes NREL a global model for sustainability, including some of the world's most energy-efficient laboratories and office buildings.

Meanwhile a United States congressional thinktank has concerns about the protection of personal financial records, and a British survey shows just how much customers will punish companies that play fast and loose with their data. But has the pendulum now swung too far in the privacy direction? One survey suggests that the protectionist barriers against digital trade could cause a measurable contraction in gross domestic product - but governments know that privacy wins votes.
