Laboratory Representative


The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) is the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) only Government-Owned, Government-Operated (GOGO) Laboratory. NETL possesses the competencies and capabilities to lead critical strategic initiatives that will advance America’s energy, economic, and manufacturing priorities. The research conducted at the Laboratory enables domestic coal, natural gas and oil to economically power our Nation’s homes, industries, businesses and transportation while protecting our environment and enhancing our energy independence. NETL has five locations across the country that support DOE’s mission to ensure America’s security and prosperity by addressing its energy and environmental challenges through transformative science and technology solutions. The laboratory’s three research sites in Albany, OR, Morgantown, WV, and Pittsburgh, PA conduct a broad range of energy and environmental research and development (R&D). NETL also has strategic offices in Houston, Texas, and Anchorage, Alaska, that address challenges unique to those energy-rich regions.

The Albany, Oregon R&D NETL campus is in the Williamette Valley on 43.9 acres located in Linn County. The site originally served as a campus for the Albany College from 1925 through 1938. The Bureau of Mines purchased the site in July 1943, and the facilities were expanded to create the Northwest Electro-Development Laboratory, later known as the Albany Research Center. The mission of the Albany campus was and still is focused on structural materials R&D.


The National Energy Technology Laboratory’s (NETL) mission focuses on the discovery, development, and deployment of technology solutions to enhance the nation’s energy foundation and protect the environment for future generations. These advanced technologies enable fossil fuels to produce the clean, reliable, and affordable energy needed to support increased domestic manufacturing, improve infrastructure, enhance global competitiveness, revitalize the workforce, and free the U.S. from dependence on foreign oil.
