NETL Director Marianne Walck, Ph.D., and researchers from the Lab will be presenting during the 2024 Digital Engineering Conference (DICE), a three-day event held at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) April 29. The focus of the event is fostering collaborations that will support the digital future of energy technology and projects. 
2024 Annual Earth Day Poster Contest digital flyer
Earth Day is an annual event that has been celebrated since 1970 and closely aligns with NETL’s vision to develop sustainable energy solutions and protect the environment for future generations. In celebration of Earth Day, observed tomorrow, April 22, NETL proudly announces the winners of its annual Earth Day Poster Contest.
Joule 2.0 Supercomputer
Through the development, validation and application of a suite of multiphase flow tools, NETL has established itself as a leader in applying high-performance computing (HPC) to computationally demanding multiphase flow problems — research that is critical for designing next-generation energy systems that will meet the nation’s decarbonization goals.
