NETL Impact


I am pleased to announce launch of the new NETL Impact magazine, the Laboratory’s first quarterly publication that introduces readers to some of the most vital and robust energy research and development focused on improving the lives of Americans through innovation.  In this inaugural issue, we feature new approaches and computational tools we use every day to increase the efficiency of existing power systems, innovate new ones, and find more efficient ways to harvest the nation’s energy resources.

You can find the inaugural issue of Impact online at . Other issues will follow on a quarterly basis. Please feel free to share with your colleagues. You can also sign up to receive the magazine with an automatic subscription by visiting .

We look forward to sharing more exciting discoveries and cutting-edge research in support the DOE Fossil Energy mission.

Plasynski, Ph.D. brings a tradition of leadership, technical expertise, and precision to the laboratory’s mission of protecting the nation’s environment and enhancing its energy independence.
