The Golden Field Office was designated a Department
of Energy (DOE) field office in December 1992 to support the development and commercialization
of renewable energy and energy-efficient technologies. As a field office within
DOE's Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Office, Golden's mission is to award
grants and manage contracts for clean energy projects, facilitate research and development
partnerships to support those technologies, and oversee the National Renewable Energy
Laboratory (NREL), the only national
lab solely dedicated to researching and developing renewable energy and
energy efficiency technologies.
To ensure that grants and projects meet regulatory requirements, Golden's Federal
and contractor staff provide expertise in the legal, environmental, contract
management and administrative fields.
