Outside Boulder Colorado, construction is finishing up on a new 182,500-ft2 (16,954-m2)  building which this fall will open as the US Department of Energy National Renewable Energy Lab’s Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF). The ESIF will include a state-of-the-art, high-performance computing data center that will improve and expand capabilities in modeling and simulation of renewable energy and energy-efficiency technologies.
