National Energy Technology Laboratory

NETL is the DOE’s fossil energy research Laboratory. The Laboratory’s mission is to discover, integrate, and mature technology solutions to enhance the Nation’s energy foundation and protect the environment for future generations. The Laboratory maintains technical competencies in areas critical to the discovery, development, and deployment of affordable, sustainable fossil energy technologies and systems. Through collaboration with partners in industry, academia, and other national and international research organizations, NETL nurtures emerging fossil energy technologies across the full breadth of the maturation cycle. Partners in NETL’s research programs number in the thousands and include small and large U.S. businesses, national research organizations, colleges and universities, and other government Laboratories. NETL is DOE’s only government-owned, government-operated National Lab.
