Water’s Role for Energy – Brent Nelson, NREL

Brent Nelson, NREL
Water’s Role For Energy

Th, March 22, 7pm, Jefferson Unitarian Church, 14350 W. 32nd Ave, Golden (Applewood)

There’s a strong but not very visible connection between water and energy. NREL’s Brent Nelson will walk us through various energy technologies illustrating where water is used in extraction, conversion, and use of key technologies. The presentation builds a “map” comparing water to land requirements for energy technologies to show the relative merits of each based on these criteria.

Brent Nelson has worked for NREL for over 30 years, mostly studying thin-film solar cells. He manages a group of data and research equipment specialists building research equipment for photovoltaics to nanoparticle generation to fuel cells to batteries, and volunteers to promote renewable energy in the classroom.

Free. Stay for the reception! We encourage job seekers to share Networking Business Cards with your career focus and unique selling proposition – don’t be shy about marketing yourself to attendees: it’s okay.
