Title: Analysis Insights: The Key Role Analysis Plays in R&D

Abstract

Over the last two decades, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has been applying its analytical expertise to help guide and advance renewable energy technology research and development (R&D). Working shoulder-to-shoulder with world-class researchers - at NREL, other national laboratories, and universities - and industry partners, NREL analysts continue to search for answers to emerging energy challenges every day. Our objective methodologies and tools are now helping stakeholders assess and prioritize R&D efforts as fast as new innovative technologies transition from concept to commercial application. Throughout that journey, NREL's analyses highlight key technical barriers, compare tradeoffs among proposed technology development pathways, track progress toward performance and cost targets, and illuminate the impacts of proposed innovations. This edition of NREL's Analysis Insights takes a deeper look at the role analysis has played in guiding renewable energy innovation at our laboratory, and beyond. In doing so, the report substantiates what we have known for 20 years - that informed analyses must remain at the leading edge of future R&D efforts.
