Libby Wayman, Director of CEMI, provided information on the initiative. Alan Goodrich and Ted James, both of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, gave a presentation on some of analysis related to the wind, solar and battery industries and how the U.S. can move ahead in these industries. This type of industry analysis is one segment of services that CEMI will offer.
