CAS institute, US national lab ink MOU on renewable energy sources

Beijing, China | Posted on November 23rd, 2008

Chaired by LV Yonglong, director-general of the CAS Bureau for International Cooperation, the signing ceremony was attended by CAS Vice President JIANG Mianheng, Vice Director-general of the CAS Bureau of High-tech R&D Development XIAO Yunhan, IEE Director-general XIAO, NREL Director Dan Arvizu and Director of US National Center for Photovoltaics Lawrence Kazmerski.

Prior to the ceremony, Prof. Jiang met with by Dr. Arvizu. The two sides came to a consensus, claiming this deal will greatly promote the cooperation between Chinese and American scientists and in particular push forwards collaboration in the field of test technologies of renewable energy sources. After the signing ceremony, the NREL guests visited the CAS Center for Photovoltaic Reliability.

Under the US Department of Energy, NREL is the only national Lab in US exclusively engaged in development of the renewable energy and related technology of application and popularization. Its research fields cover solar energy, wind energy, biomass energy, geothermal energy, hydrogen energy, batteries of fuel cells and other forms of reusable energy.
