Overview: 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. For more than 100 years, the laboratory has developed technologies to provide clean, reliable, and affordable energy to the American people. NETL’s mission is to discover, integrate, and mature technology solutions to enhance the nation’s energy foundation and protect the environment for future generations. At our mission’s core are three enduring elements: effective resource development, efficient energy conversion, and environmental sustainability. NETL implements a broad spectrum of energy and environmental research and development programs that will return benefits for generations to come. Our research enables domestic coal, natural gas, and oil to economically power our Nation’s homes, industries, businesses, and transportation while protecting the environment and enhancing energy independence. NETL is distinguished by its strategic focus on applied research programs that are directly linked to the laboratory’s aim of driving technology to the marketplace.
