DOE to Invest $8.6 Million in Innovative Technologies to Enhance Fossil Energy Power System Efficiency
Image of NETL logoThe U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Fossil Energy (FE) has selected 12 crosscutting research projects to receive $8.6 million in federal funding. The projects will develop innovative technologies that will enhance the efficiency of fossil energy power systems.

Project Makes Major Gains in Technology Deployment of Industrial Carbon Capture and Storage
Image of NETL logoThe U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has collaborated with industry in cost-sharing arrangements to advance the next generation of technologies that will capture carbon from industrial sources and either store or beneficially re-use them. Some of these technologies have advanced to a scale that can be readily replicated and deployed into industry.

Few things are certain in a changing world, but some things we can be sure of—through the year 2030, our electricity consumption will grow by about one percent a year; fossil fuel will remain a major fuel source for the facilities that produce electricity to meet that demand; and NETL’s work developing lower cost carbon capture and storage technologies will help make producing electricity and chemicals more efficient while enhancing the recovery of oil reserves once thought inaccessible.


Energy, Environment, and Economics: Teachers Gather for the 26th Annual Triple E Workshop


NETL welcomed teachers from throughout the southwestern Pennsylvania region to an exciting two-day training event. The teachers participated in hands-on, minds-on experiences of fun, low-cost activities that they could bring back to their own classrooms.
