This month we will be touring the National Energy Technology Laboratory in Pittsburgh.  This site tour is free, but an RSVP is required. Deadline is November 8.


NETL’s Mission and 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 advanced technology 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.
