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 Morgantown, West Virginia R&D NETL campus is a 136 -acre campus located in Monongalia County in northern West Virginia. The Morgantown campus was established as part of the U.S. Bureau of Mines in January 1946 and was originally known as the Synthesis Gas Production Laboratories. That research has grown to include core capabilities in chemical engineering focused on developing high-efficiency energy conversion and power generation systems as well as improving environmental performance of energy systems. As DOE’s mission evolved, core capabilities in Environmental Sciences have been developed to include extensive resource characterization; database development for resource assessment and carbon storage; and evaluation and mitigation of environmental impacts from energy recovery and utilization.


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.

Date September 19, 2017, Funding Opportunity Announcement DE-FOA- 0001791 entitled "Design and Testing of Advanced Carbon Capture Technologies", Contract Specialist: Maureen Davison. Applications due 10/31/2017. Applications and/or instructions can be found with this Funding Opportunity Announcement on FedConnect.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement is seeking financial assistance applications for projects to design, construct, and operate large-scale pilots of transformational coal technologies aimed at enabling step change improvements in coal powered system performance, efficiency, and cost of electricity.  The FOA will support the design, construction, and operation of two large-scale pilots for transformational coal technologies. Contract Specialist: Raelynn Honkus.  

The National Energy Technology Laboratory is seeking to undertake the development of an on-board flotation technology that will potentially remediate oil spills in the Arctic, as well as in the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic Ocean, and Pacific Ocean. To complement its existing expertise and capabilities, the National Energy Technology Laboratory is seeking one or more partners.
