Robert Tenent oversees the Emerging Technologies portfolio for the Buildings Technologies Program at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). NREL's buildings portfolio includes work in fundamental materials development, software development for building energy modeling and techno-economic analysis of building materials and technologies manufacturing. Prior to his time with NREL, Tenent worked across a broad range of materials science research in both the private and public sector including universities and large venture backed startups with a focus on materials and device integration. During his tenure with NREL Tenent has conducted research into materials for photovoltaic, energy storage and building materials applications. His research teams within the NREL Buildings Program have been repeatedly recognized at local, state and national levels for innovation in technology development and technology transfer including R&D100 Awards, Colorado Governor's Award for High Impact Research and multiple awards for excellence in technology transfer.
