NETL R&D – Setting Goals, Hitting the Mark
As a National Laboratory, one of NETL’s primary goals is to advance science and technology to support the DOE mission and provide mission ready competencies positioned to address the energy challenges of today and tomorrow. As an R&D organization, NETL strives to achieve the goals that support its parent organization and distinguish the laboratory as a premier research entity. For 2016, we established a number of challenging metrics to gauge our success in meeting our goals and in supporting the DOE and Fossil Energy missions. I am proud to present the results of our work as measured by those metrics.
