The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) is a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratory that produces technological solutions to America’s energy challenges. NETL is distinguished by its strategic focus on applied research programs that are directly linked to the laboratory’s mission of technology deployment to the marketplace. NETL’s current research addresses such energy challenges as carbon capture and storage; advanced coal processing; enhanced natural gas exploration and production; next-generation emissions controls; production of materials for extreme environments; and clean, high-efficiency gasification and combustion-based energy-conversion systems.
NETL has three research sites—in Albany, Ore., Morgantown, W. Va., and Pittsburgh, Pa.—that conduct a broad range of energy and environmental research and development (R&D). NETL also has small offices in Sugar Land, Texas, and Anchorage, Alaska.
As the only American laboratory owned and operated by DOE, NETL is unique in how it conducts research and in the relationships it forms with industry, academia, and other research organizations. NETL also possesses extensive project-management capabilities that it uses to shape, fund, and manage research throughout the United States and more than 40 foreign countries. The laboratory’s research portfolio includes nearly 1,400 projects and activities, with a total award value that exceeds $15 billion and private sector cost-sharing of nearly $10 billion.
Nearly 1,400 employees work at NETL’s five sites; about 40% are Federal employees and 60% are site support contractors. Most of them are scientists and engineers supported by technical and administrative staff.
