National laboratories bring remarkable research resources to their partnership with CIEE, including the talents of thousands of engineers and scientists with access to world-class lab facilities and strong energy and environmental research programs. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), which is managed by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy, has especially close ties to CIEE and UC energy researchers. CIEE’s experience with UC practices and procedures makes for fruitful, efficient collaborations.
