Letter: Bereft of NREL's cost benefit

Posted

How is it that after almost 40 years of hoopla re NREL no one has ever reported a cost benefit analysis on the so-called 'National Renewal Energy Lab'?

What actually are the annual and total costs of its operation, and what are the revenues that it has produced?

Why do these numbers remain ever secret?

Should not an annual budget of more than a third of a billion be accountable, and produce a handsome financial return to the taxpayers?

Is there any research done there, that could not be done by private industry, should the need for its products arise?

Wouldn't those companies which market energy, be the best judges of what is needed and at the lowest cost, without eternal government subsidies?
